Welcome to the enchanted world of Charlie Bears
Charlie Bears are affordable, collectable bears and characters designed by Charlie at The Bearhouse in Cornwall. Charlie also collaborates with other world-renowned bear artists to create different collections. All Charlie Bears are limited in production, and our special collections often have very low editions. Lovingly made by hand, each bear has their own unique characteristics and that is why only Charlie Bears are known as the bears with personalities.
|Just Be Coffee and Wine Lounge||
Just Be is a place where you can truly relax and enjoy the remarkable surroundings of the waterside at Saltash, whether you are choosing from the freshly prepared selection of food dishes, enjoying one of our great coffees or teas or sampling from our extensive list of fine wines and craft beers.
