The perfect place to grab a hot drink after a walk around the lake. Good selection of snacks and cakes. Easy access with a Pram or wheelchair.

I have lived in the potteries all my life but Westport is a true oasis. I take my grand daughter here to see the wildlife walk around the lake, play in the children's area and finally in the visitor centre for a drink and snack. The views over the lake are magnificent from the tea room.
