I thought this was a lovely shop and I bought a beach hut ornament that wasn’t expensive. It’s in my summerhouse and has been admired already. My husband bought a tea light holder lighthouse for our caravan. I could have bought a few more items!...More

This is the most amazing little gift shop in an old lighthouse property by the Harbour. The gifts they have are most unusual and at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit.

A beautiful hidden gem with an unusual selection of gifts ranging from soft toys to scarves, soaps and jewellery. Not too expensive.

This is always a delight to visit. Location is superb. Staff are friendly. The shop sells a wide variety of jewellery, gifts, novelty items, cards, some cutlery and clothes. Most are reasonably priced.

I see some people on here querying why the business is called The Lighthouse Pottery. That's because the owner, Christine Campbell, used to make pottery onsite at the Lighthouse. I have a number of her pieces, including a couple of vases and a paraffin lamp...More
