Joey's Cafe at Claife

Takeaway coffee at Waddesdon, A Rothschild House & Gardens in Buckinghamshire

Joey's café at Claife is a hidden gem on the west shore of Windermere. The cottage in the courtyard has been an office, a home and a Victorian tea garden. But it is now open as a cosy rest stop before you walk up to Claife Viewing Station or set out on the longer stretch along the west shore.

Local goodies

Run in partnership with local foodie lovers; Joey's Cafe, we are really excited about the freshly baked cakes and local produce you can pick up here. Everything is freshly made for our café and the menu changes seasonally. Grab a cup of freshy ground coffee and finish off with one of our freshly made cakes and pastrys.  – how could you resist? We like to think we owe it to those Victorians who took tea here hundreds of years ago.

Nearest loo

We’re sorry there aren’t any public loos in the cafe. The National Trust saved the toilets at the ferry landing so we’re asking visitors to use those. The facilities are just a four minute walk away, but make sure you give yourself enough time to get there, especially with young children.
