Rear Showroom full of gifts and crafts

Run by Lesley Harris in what used to be the old bakery in Twyford, Leicestershire - Dotty Gallery is a showcase for contemporary silver jewellery (including the unusual!), ceramics, gifts, original art and greetings cards - items not usually found on the high street. Dotty has two showrooms plus a small gallery.

Much of the work is hand made by artisans from around the country, so if you are looking for something different, come along, grab a complementary coffee, wander around the shop and enjoy! If you see some pieces that you particularly like, you're welcome to leave a 'wish list' with Lesley and for Christmas or special occasions, invite your family and friends to pop to the shop and select a gift that they know you will love.

Dotty is situated in the picturesque village of Twyford, directly opposite the church and next door to The Saddle Inn.

A short drive through beautiful rolling countryside, not far from Melton, Oakham, Syston and surrounding villages. Lesley hopes you will visit Dotty soon for that coffee and a browse and looks forward to meeting you.
