The Dartington Cider Press Centre, is a unique visitor centre with fifteen shops, eating places and workshops set in a village atmosphere.The Centre offers a collection of fine foods, glass, traditional crafts, jewellery, pottery, books, toys, stationery, wood turning, gifts, kitchenware, world crafts, plants and two restaurants.

Dartington Cider Press Centre is based on the ancient estate of Dartington Hall. In the mid seventies, the Dartington Hall Trustees, decided to open a retail centre on a site alongside the Bidwell Brook where Bernard Leach had constructed a pottery and written: ‘A Potters Book’. Here also, in the thirties, the Trust formerly manufactured apple juices – predecessors of all the millions of cartons now sold, and the Dartington Cider. It is because of this history of pottery and cider production that they sell crafts and are called the Cider Press Centre even though actual cider making ceased here fifty years ago.

All profits from the Cider Press Centre are covenanted to the Dartington Hall Trust and are used to support a wide variety of charitable activities – enabling, for example, trees to be planted, Third World students to study, or a city based youth orchestra to visit Dartington and perform in its Great Hall.

Open all year round Monday – Saturday 9.30am - 5.30pm and Sunday 10.30am - 4.30pm
