This converted church is a great place to visit to see some unique art and crafts. They have a full programme of events throughout the year which are varied. Whilst there we had a coffee in their cafe. A very pleasant experience all round.

Been living in ilminster for two years and have always enjoyed popping in here for a coffee and cake from a wide range of homemade selection available. Friendly faces, happy atmosphere and always an exhibition of art and crafts to admire while you're there.
