The Bivouac Cafe

The Bivouac cafe is the place for guests and visiting walkers, families and friends.

With snacks and simple dishes made from local produce, drop by for a coffee, cake, a light lunch, or enjoy a delicious meal in this perfect setting.

On warm summer days visitors can sit out on the patio and enjoy a cup of tea or light snack at the Bistro Cafe.

For inclement Yorkshire days, the fire keeps the split-floor level in our cafe, snug for you to enjoy the food while looking down below.

Below the split-floor is our family den with a selection of toys to entertain the kids. For the more inquisitive just step through the doors of the family den into our walled garden where you can sit out and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Family pets are of course welcome too.
