A tasty cream tea in great surroundings. Shame the weather wasn't great but we still sat outside and our little girl loved running round the gardens.

We ate here after our return walk on Baggy point. It was a lovely treat, the devonshire tea is really good! There is lots of outdoor seating and the vegetables they serve come straight from the garden. Overall a lovely experience.
