My fiancé and I were looking for a place to escape from the wind and the rain in the lake district and crafty monkeys was the perfect place. We were there for a good couple of hours and had such a brilliant time. Chilled music, calm atmosphere and really creative fun!

Initially, I was nervous that it would be very child orientated, but it wasn't. As two people in our young 20's we loved being able to just sit and paint and have a laugh together. It is such a brilliant idea and very reasonably priced. Sadly, we were only visiting the lake district on holiday so can't go back again but I would highly recommend this day out to anyone!

I came here with my 4 yr old daughter. We both thoroughly enjoyed the visit and both painted things. My daughter did a purple horse and I painted a ballet dancer, she didn't want to leave. Reasonably priced and would definitely come again and recommend

We went to Crafty Monkeys this week for a team building event for 32 people. Everyone had a great day, throwing a pot, painting an item of pottery or decorating a decoupatch item. Kathryn and her team were very friendly and helpful, giving out handy tips. We were able to take a buffet made by caterers.

We visited here in the summer holidays with my 7 year old daughter. She enjoys all art and crafts so this was right up her street! There is a wide range of pottery, decoupage etc depending on your budget/skill level. I have visited a similar place previously but found this one better as the paint was better stocked and arranged and there is such a broad range of pottery available. The staff made themselves available to help but we're not pushy, we were allowed to just get on with it at our own pace. A nice relaxed place to entertain for an hour or two.
