Pot House Hamlet is a real gem in Silkstone. My family and friends all enjoy visiting to see the animals and pet the goats! The food at the Potting Shed is lovely, a brilliant spot for breakfast!

I've been here a few times and always had a great breakfast/brunch. The coffee is excellent and if you are there with young kids they will love the goats by the little stream - you can watch them through the windows.
