Beacon Hill Cafe - Opening 29th July 2019

Visitors to Beacon Hill Country Park will be able to enjoy a range of hot drinks and snacks when the new cafe officially opens on Monday 29 July.


The first in a new venture for the popular park, the Leicestershire County Council run café is aiming to become a plastic-free zero waste hub for community events and recreational activities like cycling and hiking. 

Work started on the new cafe in February 2019 and Leicestershire-based building firm Tanwood Construction have worked tirelessly over the past five months, to design and build a cafe that compliments the park’s natural surroundings and picturesque landscape.


Set at the lower end of the park, the cafe is fitted with an outdoor seating area and bike racks and is the perfect resting spot for a day out in the beautiful rolling hills of the countryside.


The new cafe will open at 10am on the opening day (29 July) and thereafter, daily opening hours will be 9am -4pm. Beacon Hill Cafe will be serving a range of luxury hot drinks, light bites, hot food and snacks as well as Marshfield Farm’s popular puppy favourite, Scoop’s Ice Cream.


If you're planning on heading down to be one of our first customers, make sure you tag LeicsCountryParks on Facebook and use the hashtag, #BeaconHillCafe on other social media channels.
