Information for coaches
Please note that coaches need to follow a clockwise route around the valley due to the narrow nature of the road!
Coaches are very welcome to use the Visitor Centre cafe, but it is important that you inform us if you are planning a visit so that delays can be kept to a minimum.
We have seen a large increase in coach numbers in recent years and booking ahead is always advisable to ensure menu availability and faster service.
Please telephone the cafe directly on (01597) 810899, giving as much advance notice as possible.
