More About Us

About the Owners

Hello - from Derick and Lisa.

We were lucky enough to move to Pencil Cottage in 2007, which fulfilled a dream held by Lisa who fell in love with the cottage when visiting the island as a small child.

The cottage is very much our home and we like to think of our customers as visiting friends - particular as so many return each year.

Our promise is to offer courteous and friendly service whilst providing high quality and good value gifts and fayre in our tea garden and shop.

We really look forward to meeting you in person, hearing how you have found your visit and adding you to our growing list of returning friends.

About Pencil Cottage

A warm welcome to Pencil Cottage Tea Room and Gift Shop! Our aim is to give you a place to relax and enjoy the selection of home-made fayre freshly prepared for you. We are proud to support island businesses and food producers and you can be assured we take time and care to select the best.

Our main shop & Little Garden Shop continue to offer you a vast range of gifts and keepsakes, but a few steps away are our other shops More Than Words and Jingle Bells with other interesting items to tempt you.

And lastly, giving to others is also very important to us and we support a number of initiatives. Please check our Charity page to find out what we do.

We look forward to meeting you.
