Located in the shelter of the walled garden and surrounded by tulip trees, magnolias and ginko, The Apple Store Café sits at the heart of Wyresdale Park. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 9.30am to 4.00pm, the cafe is unique: dinning takes place in restored glass houses, the cakes and are baked by the Lady of the Manor, service is with a smile and digestion takes place over a game of croquet.

The ingredients are the best we can find and the cooking is headed up by Chef Simon Dixon. Cream Teas can be arranged, as can catering for larger parties. Dogs are welcome, as are horses, as are husbands.

If any further persuasion is needed to come an pay us a visit, take a look at trip advisor to see what our current family of customers think: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g2144153-d4293763-Reviews-Apple_Store_Cafe-Scorton_Lancashire_England.html

The menu consists of hearty soups, sandwiches, delicious cakes, scones, salads and full english breakfasts. Portions are handsome, as our the staff.

To find us, drive into Scorton and head up Snowhill Lane, which is the the road that runs past the Priory and village school. After half a mile you will see a few signs advertising the cafe and estate: drive past them and onto the gravel track, where you will see available parking.

The Café and Walled Garden make the perfect base from which to explore the grounds. At Wyresdale the formality of the Victorian era has been allowed to find a more natural balance – we invite you to explore the overgrown paths, the towering redwoods, the hidden lake and the still-operational fountains (in the company of wild deer and inquisitive peacocks). Beyond the Gardens are the stunning Home Farm buildings, with their English Heritage listed stonework and, during lambing season, hungry newborn Wyresdale lambs.
