The trip down the endless side road is not worth taking unless you ring first to ensure they are open. Don't expect glamour, but a rustic barn-type cafe with simple choices for cakes. The chocolates have a wide range of flavours and are nicely presented.

This beautiful hidden treasure was perfect for us. The scones were amazing as were the iced coffees. We got some chocolates to take home and they were so delicious. Will visit here again and recommend to friends for sure!
