We have 4 walks go through us and countless bike routes so they are our main audience. The road is a narrow country one but I don’t pretend or want it to be otherwise. Pleased you enjoyed the experience

Always use this tea room when in the area. Wonderful scenic location. Great homemade cream scones and China cups. Tea made with lots of loose tea (strainer provided) and plenty of extra hot water. Just the way it should be.
