The Stables gallery has a plethora of pieces, personally sourced from around the globe, including Rajasthan, Europe and North Africa.

Beekeepers produce Clover, Manuka and Thyme honey varieties – each one scrumptious and renowned for their antioxidant properties.
Since establishing The Hunny Shop in December 2010, popularity has soared as visitors swarm the shop to taste the delectable treat.
