Belstone Pottery


David Gundry, at Belstone Pottery, makes wood-fired, hand-thrown, stoneware vessels for the home – mainly for the table and kitchen. A wide range of domestic and studio pieces, using traditional glazes such as tenmocho, celadons, cobalt blue, ash green, copper red etc. – all exhibited in a light, airy, oak-framed studio.

My pottery is made on Dartmoor, from Cornish clay fired with Devon wood. I hope my pots, as do those of other societies, find some honest synthesis as a reflection of my own culture. Above all I hope they nourish!


The Old School Tearoom

A tearoom in Belstone on Dartmoor

Situated in the heart of beautiful Belstone, on the Northern Edge of Dartmoor, The Old School Tearoom provides the perfect spot to relax on a day out among the stunning scenery of the high moor, and an ideal place to prepare before striking out among the tors, or to rest beside the fire, while refuelling, on your return.

Serving homemade cakes, cream teas and proper tea and coffee – an “old school” tearoom!
