National Trust Threave Estate Stables Cafe Completed

25 September 2015

The National Trust for Scotland have opened a new characterful cafe in the garden at Threave with indoor and outdoor seating. Visitors taking a walk in the garden can now linger and enjoy teas, coffees, homemade soups, delicious cakes and scones in this new cosy cafe.

The design evokes the story of the stable block and refers to horses, gardening and the warmth of an old shed. Old books, recycled wood and materials create an inviting and comfortable experience for all seasons.

This project involved the conversion of a Grade B Listed historic building, making use of the skills of our Accredited Conservation Architects.
