When you’re ready for a break from exploring the forest, we’ve got some excellent options for taking a pause, refuelling and doing a spot of shopping.


1856 Café

The 1856 café is housed within the magnificently restored original 1856 barn space and is a perfect spot for coffee, cake, light bites, lunches and more. Add in some terrific views across the grassland to the ancient woodland and you’ve got the ideal place to relax and refuel.
