Enjoy a taste of Dyffryn

Victoria sponge cake

A large portion of our produce comes directly from our Kitchen Gardens to be used in the cafe.

The Gardens cafe is nestled by the peaceful nant bran stream, next to the children's play area, offering a selection of delicious cakes and hot meals.

Situated before the pay point it is an ideal spot to enjoy a light snack or meal after a stroll around the gardens.
