The Cider Press Centre

The shops at The Cider Press centre are a vibrant and eclectic range of shops offering perfect gifts with a focus on arts and crafts alongside a carefully curated selection of locally sourced food and drink. Occupying a picturesque corner of the Dartington estate, this mini-village remains a much-loved shopping destination after four decades of trading.

You’ll also find family-friendly Bayards Kitchen with its dedicated children’s play area.

The Devon Gin School makes Elmhirst Gin exclusively for Dartington and also offers bookable sessions to make your own bespoke bottle of gin which is great fun (See website for details)

While you’re here, explore the rest of the Dartington Estate with its beautiful Grade II* listed gardens, footpaths through the historic Deer Park, look out for kingfishers along the River Dart, take the kids to the all-natural wild play area, or book yourself in for a real experience of transformative learning in ecology or the arts on our dynamic short courses and events programme.
