Charlie Bears are affordable, collectable bears and characters designed by Charlie at The Bearhouse in Cornwall.

Altarnun Craft and Local Produce Market

Altarnun Market is a new venture which started in July 2016 but which promises to become a thriving and popular venue.

Altarnun has appeared as the venue for the marriage of Doc Martin and Louisa as well as featuring in Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.
