The Old School Craftshop

The Old School Craftshop stocks a wide range of locally produced merchandise ranging from soft furnishings and pottery through to natural skin care, gifts and cards.

Over the coming months we will be introducing new product lines from makers such as Interlude Ceramics, George Ormerod, Jules Jules and Andrea Cundell.

The Art Cafe

The Art Cafe provides coffee and delicious cakes in a relaxed, self-service environment, in the company of a range of Peter Brook limited edition prints, in recognition of Peter’s association with the Old School.

And, when the weather is kind, you can soak up the afternoon sun in the cafe’s private, walled-garden with wonderful views up the Dale and of the surrounding fells.
