The Broadwindsor Craft and Design Centre is situated in the heart of West Dorset’s beautiful rolling countryside. Redundant farm buildings on the edge of the village were the starting point in 1986 for this unique venture. Today, the Craft Centre is renowned for its excellence and quality.
The Centre underwent a major transformation in 2002 when an extension was built from locally quarried stone. This allowed the additions of two further rooms in the main gift shop, including a dedicated toy room. The main shop gallery was also opened at this time displaying pictures, lighting, fireside tools, fire guards and log baskets.
The Craft Centre is owned by Colin and Sarah Williams. Sarah was born to a farming family in the village and worked in the restaurant at the Craft Centre as a Saturday girl for many years. Today, it is very much a family run business, with the emphasis on a friendly, welcoming atmosphere to create an enjoyable experience.
