Come and visit the new tearoom at Lyveden New Bield

Latest update 16.05.2013 12:05

The Cottage at Lyveden Tearoom has been renovated and is now providing visitors with delicious refreshments and a very warm welcome.

The History

The cottage itself has an intriguing history of its own. It was built around 1690, using abandoned stone from the New Bield. For years it served as a small farmstead and gamekeeper’s lodge, even after the National Trust acquired Lyveden New Bield. In fact in 1958 the Trust advertised in the Times and Country Life for a hermit to live at the Cottage, but with no electricity or running water this was a big ask.

What we’re doing

The cottage has now been transformed, whilst still retaining reminders of its considerable age and history. Situated a stone’s throw from the New Bield itself, your refreshment will be accompanied by glorious surroundings.

Whether popping in for a quick cuppa, treating yourself to a cream tea or some cake, or enjoying a little savoury something, the Cottage at Lyveden Tearoom is well worth a visit.

Opening Times

From 1 May – 29 September, Lyveden New Bield and its brand new tearoom is open every day from 10.30am to 5pm.
