A TAKEAWAY cafe is opening outside Woodchester Mansion this weekend.

Run by Berry Blue, it will open at 10am on Saturday and Sunday.

Going forward, the cafe is set to open at weekends from now on.

Hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, paninis and cakes will be available.

A one way system will be in operation, with orders and collections made at the tea toom and kitchen windows.

Payment will be by card only.

The mansion and toilets remain closed, but toilet facilities are available in the National Trust car park.

The Woodchester team are working on plans for re-opening the mansion in the near future.
