16 years ago we caught sight of a boarded up Victorian school perched on the edge of one of the prettiest village greens in East Anglia. We converted it into a wonderful home in 2001 but 10 years later decided it was time to share this lovely peaceful building with others so transformed the grounds and building into shop, cafe bar, and accommodation.

 We aspire to provide a facility for those living in Shouldham and its environs as well as attracting new visitors to our lovely village. We provide a tranquil home from home as well as a high standard of quality meals, and service. Whether you want to come in for a cappuccino and a tea cake or just a browse in our antiques and gift shop or to book us as a party / celebration backdrop we hope that you will come and see us.

The gallery represents local artists as well as stocking prints, costume jewellery, glass, ceramics,  furniture and much more. We welcome artists and craftspeople to contact us with their pictures and wares.
