Ceri creates beautiful handmade soaps and luxurious skincare products in a little workshop upstairs at our Stables. Made with natural ingredients like pure plant oils, butters, Northumbrian honey and beeswax, they're a real treat. Pop in to see for yourself or buy them at Gibside Farmers' Market or online.
