Just a short cycle from a view of the famous Thor’s cave and a quick detour off the Manifold Valley cycle trail sits the popular Wetton Mill tea room and cafe. Inside the listed building owned by the National Trust, you’ll find a fab range of homemade cakes, tray-bakes, savoury snacks, sandwiches, ice creams and plenty of coffee.
Set beside the beautiful River Manifold, it’s the perfect place for a quick pitstop when cycling around the Peak District National Park and with plenty of outdoor seating, it makes the ideal stop for larger cycling groups exploring the area.
On our visit we had a delicious coffee and walnut cake along with a well needed cappuccino. The cafe is reasonably priced and the warm pasties or rocky road slices are the perfect pick-me-up when tackling the hilly roads around Wetton.
Thor’s Cave: If travelling by bike, once refuelled take Leek Road from the tea room to capture a glimpse of Thor’s Cave whilst tackling the hilly ascent. Alternatively if travelling by foot it’s around a 30 minute walk along the Manifold trail and then up the busy steps to reach Thor’s Cave.
Be sure to try out one of our nearby cycling routes to explore the fantastic scenery the Peak District has to offer nearby including the popular family Manifold Trail or our White Peak loop.
