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.

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.
