Doon Estate used to be a bustling, vibrant hub for local arts and crafts. Sadly, it is a shadow of its former glory. According to a shop assistant, the decline is due to the closure of a restaurant which had attracted shoppers. However, this cannot be the only reason, and it's likely that the general economic woes of the country... 更多
Sadly, the place has really gone down now and there is not much to see. The Estate used to be full of lovely items for sale and made for a fun morning but I found it rather dead last visit. A great shame.
I had been told this was once a bustling shopping area where local crafts were sold at reasonable prices. There are several shops selling a variety of items ranging from Buddhist statues to hand carved curiosities. I bought several small gifts here that were pretty nice. There is some duplication between shops, but most have their own angle. The biggest... 更多
It has been a while since we visited Doon Estate and it was quite sad to see it as it is today. The Ros Byrne outlet called The Shop has gone as have many others, the cafe which served great veggie dishes is no longer, although you can still get excellent coffee from one shop, but that's about it food... 更多
Fairly large shopping area with many small shops (15+ ?)scattered around a central courtyard. Some shops contain the usual tourist gak, but others have some more unusual items that are interesting. There is one gallery on the site which is stellar - some old items, masks, nice jewellery, etc. A couple of other shops had good quality ceramics, textiles and... 更多

Unfortunately they are gone, what is left is a series of craft shops that sell more or less the same things at higher prices than elsewhere . At least there is a nice coffe... 更多
Having read some of the reviews I wasn't sure what we would find. It was a pleasant surprise then to find a good range of shopping opportunities offering some lovely art and craft items. The area at the rear where Shona art items are on sale in an outdoor area was full of great sculptures of all sizes. Veldemeers cafe... 更多
A very much "used to be great" setting with shops and coffee house. Very sad to see that a once thriving set up, is now looking rather shabby! Drove in and drove out feeling rather sad! The few of the remaining shops were of a good quality. Coffee shop is still excelent.
Local art and craft market. Great food and coffee at Veldemeers. Really enjoyed a few hours here. If looking for local art and craft items this is the place to visit. Lovely setting.
