My wife and I went with a friend to visit this aptly named interactive craft centre / museum / exhibition today. Although not the warmest day we were very impressed with the range of products on sale and the museum of a largely forgotten craft which were mostly under cover. There are also walks laid out for visitors and a... More

Interesting Visitor Centre, lovey collection of shops and cafe. Disappointed that the walk that they said was suitable for wheelchairs definitely was not as too steep and slippery for a wheelchair.

A revisit as we had enjoyed ourselves last time. Paid for the tour. We were the only ones, so it was a superb private tour! Very informative guide, showed us all the processes (after a short DVD), including the actual making (including a coffin). Saw the Fortnum & Mason hampers all stacked up ready for Christmas! One of the workers... More

Amazing place to visit and free if you don't want a guided tour, lots to see in the shops and museum and you can walk around the workshop and yard

We spotted this place while on holiday and thought it might pass half hour but once there we realised we could be here a while. We paid the £4.50 per person for the guided tour which was optional but it was well worth it. We were shown a DVD about willow etc and the guide was very knowledgable. She then... More

We saw this place advertised in a brochure we picked up at the Fleet Air Museum when we made a visit there, and I'm so glad we did. We wouldn't have stumbled upon it otherwise as it's a bit out of the way. Like others, we thought it was a really fascinating place. The exhibition was interesting, with a small... More

This is my second visit. Was planning to spend half an hour here, but forgot how good it was. It was raining heavily on arrival and the kind lady in the shop said I could eat my picnic in the video room and the dvd ended up being unexpectedly really interesting. Grabbed a few of the free sticks of artists... More

I visited here with my friend and we thoroughly enjoyed our time, I can recommend the tour, it's not too expensive and you are given so much information which is very interesting, the basket work is beautiful and we found out that you can buy a willow coffin direct from them for £500 bargain, there are a few shops to...

The centre held a farmer's market, which was lovely. The displays and walks are really worth a visit.
