This is the home of the Alice's Bear Shop story books. You can often find the Author and illustrator Rikey Austin working on her next project or meet some of the real life characters from the books. Come visit the Teddy Bears and Dolls in the Teddy Bear Hospital. If you have time they'd just love a get well soon card. We also have a large selection of Vintage and collectable bears as well as many lovely soft toys.

Dr Dave and his amazing team did a wonderful repair operation on my "Nunny" who was over 47 years old. I was worried he might not come back looking like "Bunny" but he was repaired sympathetically and I was totally overwhelmed. Fantastic service of which I will no doubt need to use again at some point and would thoroughly recommend.

I love visiting Rikki and her friends. You can watch them repairing well loved bears, find bears to give a new home to and buy bear and rag doll kits that are beautifully packaged with easy instructions to make super gifts for others, or yourself. This time I came away with a lovely old bear and panda kits.

We bought a rabbit for my grandson and it was so cute and reasonably priced. We talked to the owners and they showed us the teddy bear hospital. Children would love it

This shop was a lot smaller than I anticipated it to be. Also doesn't stock my favourite brand of bear; Charlie Bears - which was a bit of a disappointment although I knew this before I entered the shop. The hospital is really sweet how it is set up. It's worth going in just for the 'awwwww' factor! Was a... More

My lovely mouse, known as 'Mousey' had a problem with the stuffing in his legs- it had gone into his feet and his legs needed re-doing. I went to Alice's bear shop and teddy bear hospital, and I left him with them for 40 minutes. When I came back, his legs were just right- not too stiff, not too spongey... More

I delight in this shop and hospital, everytime I visit Lyme. This time I bought down a Canterbury bear, with two holes in his paw. I am delighted to say that after a brief admission, all is well. I also added another special bear to my own collection, Ting, one designed by Rickey herself. The shop is a treasure trove... More
