Catering at the Mansion


The Woodchester Mansion Trust have set up a new partnership with another local charity, the Nelson Trust, to provide refreshments for visitors to the Mansion and Woodchester Park. Everyone using the Park is welcome to purchase food and drink (cards only please) from the cafe at the Mansion. At present the way in for food is by the door at the NW corner of the Mansion, close to the hill. Please observe social distancing and wear facemasks in the house.
