The idea for Contain A Cafe came about one day when we decided we would like to provide a temporary cafe solution at Beechenhurst site right in the Forest. We felt it would be a fantastic opportunity to provide our customers the option of being able to get a coffee, cake or a bite to eat whilst out walking and cycling in another area of the forest. With the weather in the UK not always being the best and only initially having the option being on site for a short period of time, we thought what better way to provide great coffee and cake than out of converted shipping containers. Our short stay with the cafe seemed to be a hit and with the Lodge at Beechenhurst now reopened we have decided rather than to simply close but to move to different site instead. So now you can enjoy Contain-A-Cafe at the Wenchford picnic site offering another opportunity to get out and about and enjoy the forest without having to venture elsewhere for refreshments.

Eco Coffee Cups
Ecoffee Cups

Each year over 100 billion single use coffee cups go to landfill. Most contain plastic or wax so can't be recycled even if there were facilities to do so. It's an alarming statistic and, as coffee lovers, we would like to do what we can. So next time you visit us why not pick up one of our natural reusable Eco Coffee cups and help cut down how many take away cups we use.
