From coffee to carvery, come and enjoy a well deserved break after looking around Ponderosa.

We have picnic areas around the site if you have brought your own food, then maybe treat yourself to an ice-cream afterwards.


Fancy a break? Come into our Coffee Shop and Ice Cream Parlour where you can relax with a hot or cold drink.

A variety of food from sandwiches to chicken nuggets is also available. And afterwards why not treat yourself to something sweet and get one of our Carte D’Or ice creams.
