Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Holystreet - a Memory of Chagford.

I was a pupil at Holystreet from 1956 till it closed as a school a few years later. I have vivid memories of Miss Watson and Miss Thompson, also Miss Wyatt and Mrs Ruegg. It was a beautiful place for a school, I remember the chilly dips in the river and many nature walks in the grounds, the lovely chapel and the wisteria arch at the back where we had an afternoon rest. I also remember getting my knuckles rapped, though I forget what my crime was! My maiden name was Lewtas, my Dad was the G.P. in Chagford, and my brother, Stephen was also a pupil at Holystreet. I have one picture and can remember quite a few of the names. I remember the long trudge up the hill, often walking with Elizabeth Sturdy and the Hayter-Hames girls, who I still see.
