Now returned to the village where he grew up, potter Stephen Pearce has reopened the traditional craft pottery that launched his career in the late 1960s. The showroom sells his distinctive hand-thrown black and cream earthenware tableware and the terra-cotta and white line, both beloved of collectors. The tearoom opens daily from May to Sept, weekends only in winter. Book a pottery tour in advance, and ask about workshops.
