Things   to do


bounce on our giant outdoors pillow
and eat Suffolk gelato


enjoy our stunning corner of the
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty


The paddock in front of the Food Hall has added bounce with the installation of a jumping pillow.  Free for use to our diners at either the Café or Cook House restaurant, it sits at the heart of the paddocks overlooking the Orwell, with fresh air and space a plenty for kids to enjoy the countryside in a safe environment.

Gelato Hut

For the parents with slightly less energy to keep pace with the kids, there is an outside seating area from which to simply watch. Through the spring, summer and autumn seasons our gelato ice cream hut will open its hatch for a real treat after school.

Area of Outstanding Natural beauty

Get outside and active with the kids, take full advantage of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Suffolk Food Hall sits in, enjoy the circular routes created, or wander and create your own. We welcome bikes and well behaved dogs too: so it really can be a family day out.


Walk the Wherstead Explorer route
or bike around Alton Water.
