It’s also possible to book a number of workshops, so you can try something different during your stay. This includes pottery and other crafts.

Dylan’s cafe

If you’re feeling peckish during your shopping trip, we recommend stopping at Dylan’s cafe. The country cafe is situated within the courtyard grounds and serve a delicious menu of light bites and refreshments. Reviews commend the friendly staff and warm welcome. The breakfast and lunch menu is all freshly cooked and reasonably priced.

The Courtyard Craft Centre welcomes well behaved dogs throughout the site, as long as they are kept on lead at all times. There are free dog poo bags on the fence at the entrance to the studios.
