DESCRIPTION

We are a FREE attraction with ample free parking.

Based on an historic site of pottery making, we are a company who produce quality vintage and traditional toys and games. Our working glassworks on site is just one of many reasons to visit us... 

For kids & families: You will be entertained for hours by our wonderful array of marble runs, animated animals, fairground mirrors, penny press and our giant floating marble. You will also discover lots of interesting hidden amusements in almost every nook and cranny of our site, but we will let you discover these for yourselves rather than spoil all the fun - our top tip is to look for the secret door in the garden area and don't forget to find our loveable snoring bear!  

For the more discerning visitor: You can tour the site's historic trail with museums of glass, games, marbles, and Bovey Pottery as well as our listed kilns. Many of our visitors find they can while away an afternoon or two just browsing our gift shop, glassworks and taking refreshments in our licensed restaurant.

Our rangeFrom the ridiculous to the sublime, we have been manufacturing our unusual range of traditional games, puzzles, toys, marbles and glassware for many years. We are purveyors of fine curios, and you will see when you visit us that our collection of vintage and antique wares are rivalled only by our current range!
