This is not a chocolate factory. It's a small shopping outlet with units selling crafts to tourists. They do not make chocolate here. They melt sacks of chocolate and pour it into different shaped moulds. If you are expecting this to be an interesting and...More

Like a little craft village with a coffee shop and a small chocolatiers. All of the little shops were really firendly with a nice selection of items. We particularly enjoyed the Llama walk at the back.

The factory was a small workshop which we could see via a glass window, with 1 person working, with his back to us. Hardly a factory experience. Chocolate looked attractive but prices were extortionate. Taste was not particularly good certainly not worth the price. Then...More

We popped in here on a stay in the holiday park. The smell from the chocolate draws you in, then once your there, they have you. Interesting to watch the chocolate being made, but better eating it.

We found this lovely place driving to somewhere else. We had a lovely meal at the cafe. We brought some chocolate which was really nice and I wish they sold it In Birmingham. The craft places were interesting with the art/gallery shop being the best.

Went there expecting a factory that we could look round but it was just a shop with a viewing window showing a couple of machines churning chocolate and not much else happening. Big disappointment.

Admittedly the owners are pushing reality slightly in describing this place as a 'factory', but I think it equally dubious to expect to see something like the Cadbury factory in Helston! This place is arts and crafts-tastic and the chocolate is really smooth, creamy and...More

They do make the chocolate on site, there is a small viewing area, but not much more. A nice shop selling chocolates, biscuits , fudge and jams and jellys. Nice on site car park and a little cafe for teas and coffees and a bite...More
