Spent over an hour and a half here, learning the history and watching them carve different spoons. Very interesting and genuine people. This is a family run business that is well worth a visit.

We popped in early one morning and Thomas the Woodcarver was very welcoming, explaining the history behind Welsh lovespoons and giving a commentary on the various pieces on display. His passion for his craft is very evident. We selected a small lovespoon as a memento of our trip to Wales and he offered, free of charge, to carve our initials.... More

This is the first time I have visited a love spoon workshop and I was very impressed . It is a family run small business and to see all their wonderful work is amazing. There is a speciality spoon for each year but where do they get their fantastic ideas from? Well done to the Thomas family.

Nice to see a small family business doing well. We felt very welcomed when we arrived and the talk about all the commemorative spoons was great. We thought this place had a bit of charm and individuality and made a change from the hundreds of mass produced spoons we saw in countless gift shops.

Our Mothers Union had a wonderful couple of hours at the love spoon workshop on Tuesday afternoon. We had a jolly talk on how the spoons were made & what they represent. It was all done with such humour. Most of us came home with something. I would definitely recommend a visit.
