Holne Community Shop and Tea Room nestles in the charming village of Holne in beautiful Dartmoor National Park.
In 2011 the villagers formed a co-operative and in 2014 raised enough funds to purchase the premises with the help of the Charity Bank and the support of many local shareholders.
Staffed by local volunteers and one manager the shop and tea room prides itself on being very much run by the community for the community.
The premises have been designated an official Dartmoor National Park Information Centre providing maps, leaflets and guides.
