We didn’t stop for lunch here but would have liked too. Fantastic setting. We wondered through the shop, heaps of lovely pottery from small tiles to larger pieces. Some really lovely pieces.

Morris and James is a 'must visit' whenever I visit Matakana. Beautiful range of pots to admire and maybe even purchase. This free tour is very interesting and there is a cafe to finish off your visit with lunch or afternoon tea- or both :)

This place has some beautiful pottery. I just loved the colourful plant pots and had made tiles. They also have a children's play area and a nice wee cafe. They also do a free tour every morning at I think 11.30.

It is so great to see how this stuff gets made. The tours go at 11:30 everyday and are free. Then you'll want to buy something in the shop. Art and craft in action.
