Situated near Braintree, Blake House Craft Centre is one of the region’s true hidden gems. Once a traditional farmyard, with buildings used as stables, cattle sheds and cart lodges, this wonderful site has been transformed into a vibrant and flourishing craft centre which houses a wide range of small local businesses.
Enjoy the rustic charm of the buildings while you browse the eclectic mix of goods on sale here, from a basket of flowers to ballet shoes, from dolls houses to decorations for your home and from electric guitars to elegant fabrics, you can treat yourself or find the perfect gift.
Once you’ve looked around the shops, enjoy a bite to eat in their restaurant and then test your wits against this year’s amazing maize maze challenge at The Original Great Maze, open 23rd July – 12th September 2016.
You can also test your putting skills, all year round on their fantastic Minigolf course. Challenge your friends and family to a round of crazy golf on our 9 hole course and then let the kids use up some energy in the adventure play park.
Licensed restaurant ‘Timbers’ is housed in an 18th century listed corn barn, so if you’re after a morning coffee, lunchtime snack, afternoon tea, a full restaurant meal, live band, themed night entertainment or a private venue, visit Timbers Restaurant.
