I visited Okehampton today and came across this little gem by sheer chance; and I'm so glad I did! When I first walked in, I was greeted by a very freindly shop assistant (who turned out to be the owner). I thought, "This is nice". A good range of cute, different and very fairly priced gifts and goodies. I bought some vanilla incense sticks, a cat-face pencil case and a hand made cushion. All for £20. What isn't obvious, or even evident, is that all the products in the shop are either locally sourced, or ethically sourced if not local. The shop owner searches for people who are at a disadvantage, around the world, who make the type of product she wants to sell, and buys from them. Some of the gifts were made by a family in Japan who were displaced. I took an immediate liking to this shop and I recommend you visit if you're in the area. Did I mention that the cushion I bought was hand made by local Okehampton residents living in sheltered housing due to the lack of work in Okehampton? The cushion is adorable, something of a style of its own; enough to compete with any of the big high Street brands! The shop owner is heavily involved in supporting the local community and is already coordinating events to help include the children from impoverished families in the local communities. She'll certainly help raise awareness in the community. Final thoughts: visit and buy some goodies. If you're only passing through Okehampton, or are just visiting the supermarkets, utilise your parking to the max; walk the 1 minute walk to this little gem!

The most helpful, wonderful Donna came to my rescue after realising I was a bit short of some beads, (Like all of them!) for a project that had a deadline. Got in touch one evening, spoke the next morning, precious beads dispatched that day, and having done their bit, it is now down to Royal Mail and my nimble fingers to complete the project on the deadline which is 3 working days away. Thank you Woolly Beader, you have given me the best chance!!!!
Good for beading

We used to come here every year for a 3 generation family holiday. Been a few years since we’ve been but despite our children being older now we all had a great time. Great choice of sports & crafts. Also plenty of food choices. New additions since we last came here are Hydro spa pool, golf adventure & evening entertainment. All were enjoyed by us. Staff are all very good & friendly. A particular mention goes to Jason who went above & beyond the call of duty to help us out with a particular family request. See you next year.
Really fantastic place to stay. The most amazing facilities, with most of them being free! Can't believe the incredible value for money. Been back for many years. Great for families of all ages.
