Find a perfect souvenir

Open daily from 11am

The shop is located near the castle. Make sure you pop in for something to take home, a gift for your loved ones or a treat. Have a look at some of the plants on sale or grab a read for the journey home. Browse our seasonal collections throughout the year and take away a special memory of your visit with a souvenir from our First World War range.

Pop in for a spot of what you fancy

Open daily from 10am

All year round, we include fresh produce from the garden and freshly made soups. From a 10am breakfast, to a noon lunch or afternoon tea, we've got everything on the menu in the tea-room. 

Take away a snack as you head off into the park or come after your walk and enjoy our new indoor glazed seating area; you can still bring your dog in with you to enjoy your meal away from the elements.

Keeping you cosy and warm

Take a piece of Croft home with you.

We've got ready chopped bags for just £3, ideal for your woodburner or log fire at home. Wood from the parkland is sourced from hardwoods, mainly oak and ash. If you're local to Croft, our ranger may be able to deliver a load to your door. Email us for more information.

Second hand bookshop

Give a gift this Christmas © John Hammond

We've received lots of donations of books thanks to a recent appeal.

Come and browse the shelves to find a special gift for someone or a gripping read for the long nights. All proceeds from the book shop go towards our conservation projects at Croft and we're always pleased to receive any of your own unwanted books so don't forget to bring those along too when you visit.
