We are OPEN

This event has ended

Throughout the Easter school holidays our chefs will be preparing some delicious food for you each day, whilst the Stables Cafe is out of action due to its refurbishment.

In the meantime, a limited range of takeaway food and drink continues to be available from the south doors of the Bampfylde Hall (access via the gardens).

Currently, you must book a gardens admission ticket in order to enjoy the takeaway food and drink at Hestercombe.
