Ladies and Gents, please be reassured that we are very aware how wet it is at the moment! We have been chatting to other local dog field owners and it seems we are all in the same position ☔️🌧️

Please note that the moment the fields are dry enough to drive on, and in, we will be doing a lot of maintenance to get the paddocks back up to the standard we want them to be…the rain has very much challenged us this winter so far and I’m not sure it’s done yet, but have no fear we will be back and looking sparkling in no time! ✨

Thank you for bearing with us ❤️

“Nice tucked away remote cafe. It's very very dog friendly , we dont have one and was fine regardless. Also know this is a popular stopping point for cyclists. The cafe itself is nice if slightly small inside but smart huge outside areas when warm enough. The counter service was efficient and friendly, coffee fine and good to see a few vegan options (soup and a hotpot on my sunday visit) so good to see. Would return”

“A lovey cafe. We popped in one day for a coffee and came back the next day for some lunch. I had a ham and cheese panini and it was delicious, the cheese was so creamy and nice. Staff are all lovely and welcoming. There is a fantastic deli next door which is well worth a visit. Would recommend a visit if you are passing by.”
