Location

Our workshop is located 15minutes outside Taunton town centre, in Somerset, positioning us perfectly between the north and south Devon coasts.  These famous coastlines have so much to offer with long sandy beaches, dramatic scenery, harbours, marinas and the spectacular Exmoor coastline.  Rural Somerset in contrast has rolling hills, wild moorlands, ancient woodlands and historic villages for you to explore.
