We stopped by for coffee and cake before walking on the nearby hills. This is a lovely little tea shop cafe with quality handmade items for sale. Well worth a visit.

Located in a Victorian school house, the centre is on the site of a former lead mining village. The bog is long gone. You can eat your packed lunch here and buy locally made crafts.
