lovely stop off for a coffee and a browse of the gift shop. Friendly, welcoming staff. Some tables inside and out (for the odd warm Northumberland day!!)

Nice little cafe and shop with decent quality cakes etc. Be warned though their opening hours are very unpredictable and it seems frequently not to open at all.

We go this area once or twice a year and always go to Elaine's for coffee and cake as the cakes are always unusual especially the "chocolate and beetroot". There is also a very interesting gift shop attached.

Stopped off at Eleanor's Byre for coffee and cake. It's a tiny little coffee shop and indeed only sells coffee and cake. However the cakes are amazing. I had a lime, ginger and parsnip cake. My hubby had a sweet potato, orange and almond cake...More

Very pretty. Only do cakes and coffee due to the size of the property. However comfortable and pretty inside with a well stocked gift shop. Outside very pleasant sunny seating areas and dogs welcome.

Lovely little stop off for cake and teas in a renovated barn / stable building. Friendly service inside or outside. If you get a chance take some old apples and feed the pigs in field behind!

Lovely little shop with some unusual, quirky items and lots of pretty things. We never stayed for coffee and cake as we had just eaten but am sure it would be delightful. Lovely friendly staff.
