Is it the Pencil Museum in Keswick in the Lakes District? Someone was talking about it a few weeks ago on Radio NZ.
yep!
specifically, it's the Derwent Pencil museum
I went there in 1990
having read about it beforehand, it was a must to relive primary school experiences with Lakeland and Derwent pencils
they advertise that they have the world's largest pencil, but it wasn't there - just a sign saying that it was away for maintenance, perhaps using the world's largest sharpener
it's back now

Coastal suburban boonies.
Lucky guess. Although it did remind me of a motel I stayed in in Salem. Very high on the list of the worst allegedly first world accommodations I have ever endured. Right down to the proverbial pube in the shower.
