Eating at Lyveden

Interior of the Tea Room with tables and chairs, and original stone floor

The Cottage at Lyveden tea-room opened in April 2013. As it is located a stone’s throw from the lodge, you can enjoy your tea and cake accompanied by a truly stunning view.

Sit back in the beautiful tea-room garden, which offers fantastic views of the Bield. In summer the meadow is bursting with wildflowers and the garden is full of foxgloves, wisteria and all kinds of delightful flowers.

Soups and Sandwiches

Our soup choice changes on a regular basis, so why not come back again and try a different flavour? During the Summer months we also have a small selection of sandwiches available.

Scones and cakes

The delicious scones are worth coming back for again and again. The time-honoured tea-room classic, the cream tea, includes a fruit, jam, clotted cream and either tea or coffee. For something a little different, why not try a savoury tea? The savoury tea consists of a cheese scone, cream cheese, chutney and a choice of tea or coffee.

Choose from a mouth-watering selection of cakes, flapjacks, shortbread and brownies. A perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee.


Hot drinks include cafetière coffee, a selection of teas and hot chocolate. Or choose from our cold drinks menu, offering a selection of fruit juices, still and sparkling water, lemonade and ginger beer.

From 27th February to 29th October, the Cottage Tea Room will close 1 hour before the site. At all other times, the tea room closes 30 minutes before the site.
