Welcome to The Courtyard Craft Centre
website. We are one of the few free attractions in
Dorset and offer a huge range of arts, crafts and
a unique shopping experience.
The Courtyard is fortunate to be set in an idyllic semi
rural location and offers a very welcoming and relaxing
environment to visitors of all ages. We hold regular
classes and events and the centre is also a popular
choice for weddings and celebrations in our Medieval
There are 20+ businesses based here including a working
pottery, a traditional country restaurant and a pet and
animal shop. There are
regular events including colourful outdoor displays and
things to make and do. The centre is a mixture of the
traditional and contemporary, ensuring there is
something for everyone!
Please browse around the site for more information about
each unique business and what they have to offer or come
on down for a friendly chat and a cream tea with your
friends and soak in the beautiful country ambiance.
Dogs are welcome! And parking is FREE!
Hope to see you soon!
Jim Hartey and everyone at the Craft Courtyard Centre!
