We are an artisan chocolate maker and our purpose built 'factory' is open to visitors. Watch our chocolatiers at work and learn about chocolate with information boards covering everything from the history of chocolate, to where it is grown and how it is made. On site cafe serving premium coffee, homemade cakes and savoury light bites (such as panini's etc). The cafe also has free WiFi. Try your hand at making a chocolate pizza, lollies or other seasonal activities in our workshops suitable for ages 2 - 102. Our factory shop is crammed with our chocolate creations for you to browse or indulge. Together with a loose chocolate counter and a selection of giftware and hampers you are sure to find a lovely gift or special treat. We have on site free car parking and toilet facilities including baby change and wheelchair access. Cadbury's World we are not, but hope you will find it is a nice way to spend some time.

Thanks for your review and information which I am sure will be appreciated by others. Pricing reflects the hand made chocolates we produce and quite different to mass produced factory chocolate full of additives.

Small factory selling homemade chocolates and novelties. Chocolate pizza making workshops for children. We had some food in the cafe which was lovely. Staff very friendly and helpful. Chocolates in the shop quite pricey.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review and pleased you enjoyed your visit. Inevitably hand made premium chocolates cost a little more than those mass produced for supermarkets.
