Tried to get near rock pit but couldn't as rude mothers with too many kids and dogs blocking the way. Maybe a sign put up to remind people to allow others to get a look in would work?

Drove 2 hours just to go to this shop after seeing it all over TikTok! I love crystals so couldn’t wait to visit.
I purchased many items as well as a few bags to collect some tumbles from the gem pit.
We were a bit worried we wouldn’t be allowed in the gem pit at first as the sign says ‘children’s bag £5’, however, the women behind the till gave us the bags and told us just to watch out for any little children which is fair enough.
The area is beautiful and the shop was well worth the long drive. I will be returning again in the future for more!

This is a nice little shop with some great activities and so we've visited a few times now. On the first visit, we bought my daughter a 'Dinosaur Den' cap which she has worn pretty much every day for a number of years. Recently we tried to purchase a replacement cap over the phone only to be told "Oh no, we've only got limited stock, so we won't sell you one." How very odd. It's not often you find a shop unwilling to sell their products because they don't have many left. My daughter is not the only one disappointed with this service (or lack thereof) especially as we have been unable to return due to lockdowns and distance.

We took our grandchildren to Ambleside for the day and visited the Rock Shop. We had a fantastic time, we completed a couple of activities which they both thoroughly enjoyed. My grandson bought a hematite ring which when we got home he dropped on our tiled floor and it broke, we phoned the Rock Shop and they were really helpful and sent us another one through the post. Thank you for your help 😊. We look forward to visiting again.

My wife and I visited this shop as she likes to buy crystals and from that viewpoint we weren't disappointed. I bought my wife an excellent piece of smoky quartz which will be a wonderful addition to her collection. The crystals, tumble stones, geodes etc are of the highest standard available in a shop like this and I would recommend a visit to any interested in such things. A word of warning, however. The man who served me was deeply unpleasant and filled the atmosphere with negative vibes by staring at us constantly and then bullying me to pay before I had finished looking around. The assumption that I wanted to pay by card when I had the money in my hand was offensive also. This took the good out of the experience for us and we had to cleanse the crystal we bought of negativity before my wife felt she could enjoy its presence in our own home. So, if you like good crystals and can handle negative shopkeepers, go ahead and make a visit, though we won't be doing so again.

My personal heaven. Absolutely full of treasures and every crystal you could want. I came back again to buy a lovely selenite lamp. The guy at the till was really friendly which was a bonus. Cant wait to visit again! Hoping I win the lottery in the meantime to buy the huge 5ft amethyst geode.

Amazing shop! We visited this shop today as we had a break in Ambleside for our anniversary, as soon as I walked in I was amazed! It’s got everything you could wish for and more, we spent a good 15 minutes just looking around and felt very welcome to browse. I told my son about it when we returned home to Manchester and he can’t wait to get involved, planning a birthday treat for him right now. Can’t wait to return! Thank you x

Excellent shop! Visited multiple times on our holiday and purchased quite a few bits! Beautiful jewellery, beautiful crystals and also a section for kids to enjoy. Will visit again.

We visited and there were signs on the main road as well as outside the shop and at least 4 or 5 signs inside which said the kids activities were £5 each or 3 for £10 so my young daughter went to pay with her own money only to be told they weren’t doing this offer due to lockdown (apparently it’s a good excuse to rob people) I pointed out the signs around the shop and was told that as the lady only worked there then she couldn’t do anything.

We booked for our children age 4&6 to do the three activities here on a wet day of our holiday and they loved it! The dinosaur experience, bracelet making and gem pit (which has had to change because of COVID regulations) were great and took up a really fun hour or so. Helpful and friendly staff, good value for money and all clearly labelled and laid out. Definitely recommend a visit here!
