A great visitor attraction for groups of all ages. An all weather location where you can shelter from the rain or find cool in the shade. Home made cakes and soups and Fair Trade coffee served all day inside or in the picnic area. Check out the bird feeders; there may be a rare one to spot, or a cheeky squirrel.

Café At The Cavern

Our Café has a range of hot food and snacks, warm and cold beverages. If you’ve worked up a thirst exploring the Woodlands, Cavern or Go Ape Forest adventure course then this is the place to replenish.

Our menu contains locally produced ingredients. Freshly ground fair-trade coffee and gorgeous homemade soups and cakes with vegetarian and gluten free options.
