This is a lovely example of French Architecture and contains shops so you can browse for souvenir, gemstones and jewellery made locally. Well worth a visit

Always great to return for a quick visit to Kenwyn House and stroll along the displays. It is the architecture however which keeps bringing me back.

This is historical site now mostly in use to sell expensive jewelry and gems to rich tourists. Were in and out in 5 minutes. We expected to find some sort of museum but were clearly disappointed.

It's worth visiting the gallery just to experience the warmth of old wood and the distinctive style of louvred wooden shutters that were once universal here.

Visited Kenwyn house, came down with with my cousin Steve from Shrewsbury and thought we would pop in to see the local art. To be perfectly honest, I think my 4 year old son could do better. It was a eyesore.
