The licensed Courtenay Cafe offers a range of light lunches, refreshments and delicious cream teas. We can seat up to 25 inside the Courtenay Cafe with additional seating in the Coach House as well as outdoor seating so that visitors can enjoy the Westcountry sunshine!
We offer a selection of sandwiches, light lunches and a homemade 'daily special' as well as speciality teas, coffees and cakes. We always have options on the menu to suit vegetarians too. For younger ones the children's lunchboxes are the popular choice, with a filled roll, packet of crisps, piece of fruit and a drink to satisfy their little appetites.
If you have a specific allergy please call us ahead of your visit or pop in when you arrive and we will do our best to cater for you.
The Cafe inside is cosy, but has a ramp to make it accessible to wheelchair users.
You are most welcome to bring your own picnic if you prefer and there are designated areas - by the lake or in the Walled Garden where you can relax and enjoy it. We would simply ask you not to feed the animals or birds.

The narrow entrance and few steps makes it inaccessible to wheelchair users. However there are gifts available to purchase at the Powderham Trading Co at the Country Store (located at the top of the drive). The Country Store is worth a visit on your way home with its lovely food hall, Toby Buckland's plant shop and Plantagenesta (a family history research centre).
