Shopping around town

The locals describe the town as being like a department store thanks to its range of independent shops. Foodies love the butchers, bakers, fishmonger and deli, while those seeking something special for their homes are totally spoilt. Then there are the loveliest of clothes and shoe stores, where even the littlest shoppers are well catered for, and the quirkiest of hardware shops.

When you’ve shopped until you’re ready to drop, it’s easy to stop off at one of the many cafes, pubs or restaurants for some sustenance, before you head out to find some more retail treats.

Selling hand made, award winning, craft chocolate from across the UK and delicious locally made brownies.

We sell carefully selected, high quality chocolate that is hand crafted in small bean to bar manufactories around the country, beautiful hand-crafted individual chocolates from Carlisle and amazing chocolate brownies made locally using the finest ingredients.
