Princess to open cafe and shop
Published at 21:37, Wednesday, 29 August 2012
HER Royal Highness Princess Alexandra will formally open the new Caerlaverock Tea Room and Shop on the Caerlaverock Estate in Glencaple near Dumfries on September 7.
Princess Alexandra is a frequent visitor to Caerlaverock and is known to enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the farming estate.
Lady Mary Mumford who, with her sister Baroness Herries, owns Caerlaverock Estate, accepted Princess Alexandra’s offer to perform the opening ceremony.
The Tea Room and Shop are in a striking new building of contemporary design on Glencaple quay and enjoy spectacular views of the River Nith and south towards the Solway Firth.
The light, spacious tea room is the ideal vantage point from which to relax and watch the tidal bore, which can be spectacular on occasion. Enjoy the tranquillity of the setting, watch the traditional haaf netters and the abundant wildlife and sample delicious home-baking while nursing a hot cup of speciality tea.
A selection of nature-based visitor attractions which adhere to the ethos of a balance between agriculture, wildfowling and conservation, first established by Lady Mary Mumford’s late father the 17th Duke of Norfolk in the 1950s, are all within easy reach.
These include the Caerlaverock Merse National Nature Reserve, Caerlaverock Castle and the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust centre at East Park farm, linked together by signposted woodland and countryside walks.
The shop will cater for residents and visitors and offer not only a selection of weekly essentials but also a new range of meat products, including beef, lamb, salmon and venison from Caerlaverock Estate.
