Hi I'm Jo and I'm co-owner of Minions Shop & Tearoom. I was looking for a new challenge after years of managing equine and animal centres, I loved the idea of owning a shop and tearoom on the moors. I love everything to do with nature, being able to work and live in such a beautiful place is just amazing.



Hi I'm Alison and I'm co-owner of Minions Shop & Tearoom. I was looking for a change in direction after many years teaching and managing in education. I fell in love with the idea of running a local village shop and tearoom. Having driven past it for many years, then noticed it was for sale, Minions Shop & Tearoom became the challenge I was looking for.
