yes, but is difficult in the summer time, it is possible to park in the " Walls Hill Down " car park next to the "Old Coach House " pub, you will have to pay, but worth the walk if you have time.

Not sure. I would think so. Perhaps phone them if you need to clarify. The teas are really scrumptious. Enjoy.
Do they do a gluten free option for the Afternoon Tea menu or can they cater for this request should this be pre-booked?

Angels sells gluten free scones/cake/bread. You can order these items when you pre book if you wish. As this tea room is most popular I do stress you book in advance.

A little taste of heaven in a beautiful part of Devon! Angels is a perfect place for Devonshire Cream Tea looking onto the seafront in Babbacombe. Very popular with the locals and recommended to holiday makers.
