Newest Review: ... a paperweight that was a chunk of rough glass with one smooth side with an amonite etched inside the glass. I paid £24 which was ok. It was reduced from £60 and there is no way on earth it was ever worth that! The sweets & cakes etc that were for sale were also overpriced (in the opinion of at least half a dozen Mums who were making kids put things back with offers of trips to Tesco's or ... more

After reading a review on the internet for The House of Marbles in Newton Abbot, Devon, we decided to visit there last weekend (Easter Saturday 2011). It's unusual to find something to do in Devon & Cornwall that is 'Free', so we were definitely keen to go. The photo of the stunning looking Colonial-style house that accompanied that particular internet review really clinched the deal. It was a hot, sunny day so we thought it would be lovely to sit in the grounds once we'd visited the indoor attraction. As per the previous review, yes, the House of Marbles is very easy to find. We put the postcode (TQ13 9DS) into the SatNav and off we ... Read the complete review

Great, family friendly place to visit. Lots to see and do with amazing marble runs, including one huge one. We enjoyed watching the glass blowing and had a very good meal in the restaurant where the prices are very reasonable and the service efficient and friendly. Lovely shops, including a great range of clothes upstairs. it's not all marbles!

When I was on holiday my girlfriend suggested that we grouped together a load of those flyers you can find on racks in pubs, swimming pools and the like, then decide where we would go. I will write about the other places soon but this one was the cheapest, in fact it was free. If you’re anything like me, when you go out you want to be entertained so if you are going to spend half a day in one place it must have plenty to see and do…. At first glance the flyer gives a fair idea of what you are in for, but I still had my doubts and was sure that this would be an hours trip to a glass shop. How wrong I was, for a start we were there ... Read the complete review

The House of Marbles is situated in Bovey Tracey, Devon. It’s pretty easy to find, you just have to head for the Drumbridges Roundabout (if you are travelling from South of Bovey), this is the roundabout that goes to the Newton Abbot branch of Trago Mills. From the roundabout you then head to Bovey Tracey and keep going straight until you reach a mini roundabout where you take the first exit. There is a sign here directing you the few hundred yards of the rest of the way and the building can be found on your right. Should these directions not be enough for you their full address is: House of Marbles, Pottery Road, Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot ... Read the complete review
