Like walking into a chocolate box

What an amazing place. Full of lots of lovely things. Too many to choose. Came away with a bag full.

We called in on our walk around Keswick and bought some of the lovely chocolates to take home and they were absolutely gorgeous we will definitely be coming back for more, the salted caramel and coffee are the best that I have tasted.
