Browse our Gift and Clothing shop stocking quality coastal gifts and clothing by Joules, Seasalt and Powder to name a few. Pick up a gift from the House of Marbles, Jelly Cat or Emma Ball and look out for new names. Works of art are exhibited along our cafe bar walls complete with greeting cards if you don't buy the picture.

We even have history in our Chapel above as Reverend John Wesley visited the Bay in 1753 and the famous author Leo Walmsley was educated here and later came back to teach. As well as write his schools days in the Old Chapel in "Sound of the Sea" and "Foreigners".
