Enjoy some lovely snacks and home-made cakes at our on-site café. The café is open daily from 10am until 4pm (although it does sometimes close earlier on wintry days).

With our wonderful chefs Jen and Debbie, you are sure in for a treat! All of our cakes are homemade and we have a Daily Specials board for some extra tasty meals and desserts!

We cater to all tastes and dietary needs as well as a range of children’s meals and lunchboxes.

Where possible we use local ingredients which vary according to the season.

Jen our chef makes the most amazing cakes – a fact to which visitors to the sanctuary will attest!

If you are having a celebration of any kind, Jen would be delighted to create a beautiful, sumptuous cake to your bespoke specifications.
