“Perfect for rainy days, the art cafe is a wonderful little pottery painting cafe in the stunning town of Kingsbridge. Pick out an item (eg plate, mug, money pot etc) and enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a snack whilst creating your masterpiece. Once complete they need a couple of days to put your pottery through the kiln to get the glossy finish, so try and book early in your trip so you have time to come back to collect your items. Alternatively they can send them home to you.”
