Cafe on the Coast at County Gate

Our Cafe by the Coast catering wagon is now open at County Gate viewpoint car park, Exmoor.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

We'll be selling barista coffees, teas and cold drinks, delicious traybakes and local Styles ice cream from our scenic pitch next to the County Gate car park between Lynmouth and Porlock, with views for miles.

So if you're up walking on Exmoor, or driving the stunning route from Lynmouth to Minehead, why not come to sit and enjoy the view with a coffee and something yummy?

We will be open six days a week (weather permitting, weekends a priority) 11am-3pm from Monday 12 to Monday 26 August.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
