Café and Shop


Our Café and Country Park are closed to the public until further notice because of the coronavirus pandemic. See you again soon. 730px front of cafe

Due to the rapidly changing coronavirus situation and in order to protect our residents, the Café will be closed until further notice. Sorry for any inconvenience.

By supporting us you are helping to provide adults with learning disabilities the chance to take part in work-based training. Profit is put back into The Lodge Trust charity, which then enables us to give more people the opportunity to gain skills in catering, hospitality and tourism. 

Set in ten acres of parkland, the Country Café has a warm, welcoming, bright, clean feel. It has excellent disabled access, with car-parking facilities for disabled people and a ramp into the main building (see our Accessibility Statement for more information). 

Glass doors allow a wonderful view of the ten-acre site, which includes a country walkway and picnic tables. 

Children are always welcome and we now have a fantastic play area in our Country Park.

MOPA statement

We appreciate that many families will have been looking forward to making use of the play area again.

However, we are sure you will understand that whilst we are an independent charity our play area is sited on the premises of the Lodge Trust, a residential care home. The play area committee have to make decisions that are in the best interests of everyone and follow the government and local authority guidelines, especially as we are so close to a residential home where some of the residents are particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus.

We are working closely with the Lodge Trust to monitor the situation on a weekly basis, but at the moment our play area remains closed until further notice.
We will let you all know as soon as we feel we can safely re-open the play area.

Thank you for your continued support.


Play equipment

We have a large display of quality craft and woodwork products for sale which are made here by our residents and Service Users. Plants, grown in our own gardens, are also for sale all year round.

We are happy to cater for parties of up to 24 people by arrangement with the Country Park team.
