Eating and shopping in Kinder, Edale and the Dark Peak

Lady serving customers at cafe

The National Trust will be moving from the Penny Pot Café in Edale in March 2019.

Penny Pot Café

It’s been a difficult decision for us to make, but as a charity with limited resources we have decided to focus on improving visitor facilities and the tea-rooms at our main visitor centres at Longshaw and Ilam Park.

We’ve had the tenancy at the Penny Pot for ten years, and would like to thank all the staff, volunteers and visitors who’ve made the café such a lovely place to enjoy quality food and a drink when visiting the High Peak over this time.

As tenants, we don’t know what the future plans for the Penny Pot Café are, this will be a decision for the owners of the building and/or a new tenant.


Fresh, local food

Why not try Castleton farmers' market, where you can buy fresh, regional food and support the local community at the same time?
The market is held on the first Sunday of every month, from 10am - 3pm in the village hall.


Eat with the National Trust

Longshaw grows their own veg in the kitchen garden behind the visitor centre and the picnic area outside the Manifold tea-room at Ilam Park has stunning views toward Thorpe Cloud.
