  • Didn't even know this place existed but what a little gem! Lots of cute arts and crafts shops, a geology exhibition which was interesting, lunch at Meat and Eat followed by afternoon coffee and hot choc at Cocoa Mountain! Great wet weather choice.
  • Wanted a coffee stop and found the Cocoa Mountain cafe which is excellent, great coffee and amazing hot chocolate. Decided to explore the craft village, very disappointing, artist studio and potter interesting working studios, and artisan products. Other studios displaying "handicraft" you would expect to find at a school bazaars. Very odd to find the hairdresser at work at work in the gallery! "Village" felt unkept and disheveled.
