You can fuel yourself for the day at the Tea Rooms which offer full breakfast, lunch and snack menus, along with a great range of tempting cakes and desserts. The Tea Rooms are licensed, so you can also relax and unwind after a rewarding day in the hills with a local beer or wine. There is a full range of teas, coffees and soft drinks too, to quench that well earnt thirst. Our shop is also open during the summer season and is also well worth a visit. It stocks those all-important maps and guides, along with a number of essential items that will help make your day go smoothly. During the winter months we have an unstaffed Information Point in the Tea Rooms for your basic information needs. With an outdoor play area, wildlife garden and trail for the children, you could spend the day with us! Come and visit, you will not be dissapointed.

Ample parking (pay and display). Cafe with range of hot and cold food (home made) and drinks. Popular and reasonably priced. Visitor centre and displays. Good for a snack in poor weather and variety of short and long walks.
