We went to Margarets Tea garden, on arriving she was just closing but with a happy smile she stayed open to serve us our coffees @ a slab of cake which she is famous around these parts.We did enjoy the end of our day out in the garden.

You can do no better than visit Margaret's rustic tea garden. In a lovely spot just up from Northcourt beach. She is an amazing Cornish lady who welcomes all wth a smile and friendly banter. Food and drinks are reasonably priced and her Cornish cream teas are legendary. A must or a visit if you are staying in the area

Hidden away just off Northcott beach we stumbled across this caravan serving tea, coffee and snacks. The cream tea was amazing. Reasonable prices. Nice garden to sit and enjoy your snack/drink.

We were suggested to stop here on our walking holiday and yearly pilgrimage to Cornwall. after walking for hours we found this wonderful place close to the sea. We were grateful for a stop and some sustenance. Yes the toilets weren't great yes the cream tea was runny and not all is perfect but the wonderful loud eccentric greeting you... More

Walked across the Downs from Bude to Margaret's rustic tea garden and wasn't disappointed. Delightful garden with a river running through with a rickety bridge. Picnic tables, even little ones for the children. Margaret was bubbling with Cornish charm, easy chat with an interest in you. Teas & coffee, delicious homemade cakes & cream teas. Everything you'd want on a... More

How lovely to come across this fairy tale caravan tea garden. The lovely Margaret is so happy and cheerful and the setting so nice that if these were things to determine how much you enjoyed the experience then you will not be disappointed. A fair weather stop for a pastie

Margaret is a lovely lady, running this enchanting little tea room by the sea. Not only is the garden beautiful and all seating is outside, the scones and jam are beautiful, but the best thing is the very generous serving of clotted cream that comes with it! Definitely worth a visit! Remember it's only open during the summer season thought... More
