Devon lake Fernworthy Reservoir in North Dartmoor now has an exciting new mobile coffee business – just in time for the long family days out during the summer holidays.

Serving certified organic and Fairtrade tea, coffee and hot chocolate in addition to a variety of locally sourced cold drinks and snacks, from a classic Piaggio Ape, Peace and Coffee can be found at Fernworthy Reservoir every day during the school holidays and every weekend during term-time.

Born of the desire to deliver a selection of Devon’s fantastic home-grown food and drink in beautiful rural settings, Peace and Coffee is owned and run by Kate and Paddy Dowsett; a husband and wife team who live on Dartmoor. They are keen outdoor enthusiasts and true coffee lovers but believe that the two do not need to be mutually exclusive.

Kate says, “Dartmoor is such a special place and very close to our hearts. There’s so much on offer here and Fernworthy Reservoir is a fantastic day out. There’s nothing better when you find a beautiful and safe place for the children to run around whilst you can chill out with a decent cup of tea or coffee. Over the years we’ve learnt to enjoy the simple things in life!”

Idyllic Fernworthy offers a safe and secure area for dog walkers and families alike with clearly defined trails and a number of routes of varying lengths.

Visitors to the site can also benefit from the picnic area which provides a magnificent viewpoint of Fernworthy’s archaeological points of interests and the lake itself.

For wildlife lovers there are two bird hides to choose from and for keen fishermen, the reservoir also offers traditional fly fishing for natural and stocked Brown Trout. With the addition of the new refreshment facilities, there really is something for every age and ability to enjoy.
