The boathouse café

Our café reopens in February 2014.

If it's a bright winter day, we've lots of room for picnics outside - make the most of those stunning views!

Dating from the 1800s, this magnificent local stone building houses our café and a small retail selection.

From the lakeside terrace you can enjoy the views up the lake and watch the boats go by. On chillier days warm yourself by the log burner in the traditional wood-panelled interior.
