Our Story:

Seven Fables, originally known as Number Seven Dulverton, evolved from a shared passion for art, storytelling and the changing seasons.

Since opening in 2002 we have gained a reputation for selling a carefully curated collection of British craft including ceramics, jewellery, stained glass, prints and paintings. We are the principal gallery representing the work of illustrator and author Jackie Morris.


Our bookshelves offer new publications alongside classic fiction, and we are known for our extensive collection of nature writing. Customers also travel from far and wide for our range of art cards.


We hold regular events and if you love reading and walking then our book club could be just what you are seeking.


We hope you enjoy browsing our website but nothing beats a relaxing visit to the shop in person, and Exmoor is just such an inspiring landscape to explore. . . 


'We have just returned from a brief camping trip in Somerset & discovered Number Seven quite by chance on an unscheduled visit to Dulverton that was so nearly thwarted by roadworks. The split second decision to drive past the 'Road Closed' signs regardless, rendering us a bit lost, meant we really did stumble across Number Seven by a series of errors & wrong turns! Perhaps we were meant to find you! At night on closing time, on a dank & dreary day, the welcome couldn't have been warmer. And the treasures within instantly turned us in to 2 children in a sweet shop. Evocative, magical & poignant. Goodies for young and old alike. We could have happily moved in! We fed our souls, exchanged gold & silver coins for a bag full of wonders and left with full hearts. Utterly delightful, brimming with thought & care. A place where dark fairy tales & exquisite art all hold hands round the campfire whilst their songs drift away to touch a spirit with something beautiful.'
