For more than a decade the Scarab Village, Sedgefield has been a hub for local creativity and ingenuity - from food fare to arts to a unique range of crafts.
This village is not just a craft fare, but has several permanent businesses trade that throughout the week, offering a range of distinctively unique items, including natural, bespoke furniture pieces, handmade jewellery and decorative light fittings, hand crafted paper, beads, wood and stone decor and so much more.
Scarab Village house a lovely nursery that sells a host of indigenous plant species, which include a wide selection of succulents. The village also boasts Sedgefield’s very first boutique craft brewery. This family business specialises in quality hand crafted beer, including a light summer-style Blonde, to a well-hopped Indian Pale Ale. Their beer garden offers a relaxed, down to earth place to hang out with friends on the weekend.
On Saturdays the venue transforms into a busy Scarab Craft Market. Here one can source some of the best authentic arts and crafts on the Garden Route. And now, from the 2 October, the Scarab Village is going to be humming to a totally different beat with the opening of the new restaurant Melody’s. The owners anticipate Melody’s to become THE meeting place for both locals and visitors looking for a venue to dine and dance the night away!
Melody’s will be open daily and will host a variety of different genre musicians, including jazz, blues, country, rock, cabaret to name but a few. No cover-charge will be payable during their opening month of October.
