Muddy Boots | You'll find wholesome, hearty snacks served all day, in a relaxing environment, and it's the ideal place to warm up after a blustery walk. Muddy Boots is next to the visitor welcome area in the main car park and you'll get a warm welcome from the team, whatever the weather.

The Farmyard Cafe | Perfect if you're in a hurry. Grab a snack or hot drink and continue with your visit. You'll find the cafe in our courtyard near the Book Shop.
