Very disappointed. Visited this place with my wife last year and it was a pleasurable experience. There were some good little craft units, especially the excellent quilt shop upstairs and the wonderful card making shop next door. We revisited this year and what a difference 12 months makes. Half of the units had closed down, sadly this included the 2 mentioned above, and what was left seemed half hearted at best. To say this is supposed to be a craft and design centre I saw very little of either, the main shop now seems to sell a lot of imported tat, the restaurant was below par and expensive and the whole place gave the atmosphere of a business in decline. Sorry, felt the need to write something as hopefully it will alert the centre and maybe restore it to its former glory.

I have visited Broadwindsor Craft Centre on many occasions and confirm it is not just another craft centre! It is quite outstanding for its' diverse stock, in fact you can buy everything you require in the way of presents, decorations, wrapping - not to mention bath products - from birth to Christmas. Every visit will uncover something new, when you thought there was nothing new to see. The restaurant and conservatory area are quite unique and the food (all homemade) is different to anything else you will ever taste. Good or bad weather, a trip to Broadwindsor Crafte Centre puts the world to rights. Earth Design is a must! I have some wonderful memories of Broadwindsor .. Read the complete review

I have a wonderful painting by ANDREW HOWARTH who has a lovely studio within the beaminster craft centre. His work is Superb and inspired. If you want something unique , VISIT and see for yourself.

I Feel I must up date the last persons review! Broadwindsor Craft Centre is not like every other craft centre...The large free carpark is set in the freindly village with great historical interest. The first court yard has 4 craft businesses including 'The Floral Art Studio, 'The Gorillas Nest' , 'Starting from Scraps' (a scrap booking & papercrafts shop), as well as 'Caboodle' (hand painted personalised gifts for all the familly!) In the rear Courtyard the is 'Earth Design' (THE precious stone & Gem shop of the south including one off sculptures from all over the world, special crystals too). Upstairs is 'Beccas Quilt Emporium' (a haven for ... Read the complete review

Broadwindsor Craft and Design Centre is about seven miles north of Bridport and about a couple of miles west of Beaminster, located needless to say in the village of Broadwindsor. Most parts of the country seem to have similar centres these days, a community of small shops and workshops, congregated around a set of redundant farm buildings. They provide opportunities for small locally-based crafts-people or artists to market their products, by enabling them to share location and publicity and other facilities like restaurants, car-parks and toilets. I’ve been so several places like this and Broadwindsor is fairly typical. It was a damp day in Dorset ... Read the complete review
