The weather was not great but I spotted the White House through the trees on the descent from the Chevin and popped in for a... More

We normally park up at surprise view and haven't been down this far as normally just do a loop and don't go down the steps. Today we decided to go down a bit further. The white house is easy enough to find. We had been walking around for a good hour so decided to stop for a tea. They serve... More

It is very reasonably priced, being a not for profit establishment. We only had hot drinks and some cake as it was near to closing. Our brief visit will not be our... More

A great stop when you are out walking on the Chevin. You have to walk as it is only accessible by footpath. It is run as a social enterprise, employing adults with learning difficulties. The menu is simple - jacket potatoes, toasted, cold and hot sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and ice creams but who wants a big meal half way through... More

Dog and human friendly. Jacket potatoes, toasties, hot drinks and chocolate for the wife. Dog biscuits for Harry....you've guessed the dog. Oh and child friendly too. We love it, no matter what the weather. A big thank you to the helpers and mentors.
