Stumbled across this place while walking from Bolt Head back to East Soar car park. An open barn with tables and benches and a little "kitchen" where you can make your own coffee, tea (breakfast tea, herbal or earl grey) hot chocolate or grab a cold drink from the fridge. Large slices of beautiful home-baked cakes mean you put back... More

A fellow guest at our hotel in Hope Cove told us of this place and it was a handy stop walking from East Soar car park to Overbecks. On our midweek visit in September we were the only customers, so self service was the order of the day. A very peaceful and relaxing stop for a pot of tea, and... More

Wonderful concept - a beautifully, rustically decorated barn with an honesty box for the best cream tea imaginable. Can't praise this place enough! Watch out for opening times though - think its only open in the summer. We felt so blessed to stumble on this!

A charmingly decorated barn on a family farm offering cakes and hot drinks for weary walkers (cash only). Everything has a pleasant home made feel from the cakes to the kids play areas. Great location just off the coastal path around 4 miles from Salcombe, but also in the centre of a more manageable one hour family walk. Great service,... More

We walked from Overbecks along the coastal path then up the steep hill to East Soar Farm. We were incredibly lucky to have visited on such a beautiful sunny day, the scenery is truly spectacular! We were expecting the hut to be self service but we were incredibly fortunate to have Marijke to bring us over tea and scones. They... More

This is an incredible place to stop. We visited last year and so went especially to bust again and were not disappointed at all. This year it was self service which we so enjoyed:). Amazing scones and cakes and a lovely pot of coffee. Thank you for such a lovely coffee stop:))

These are the best scones in the South Hams ... Delicious. Dogs are welcome and a large bowl is there for them. You always get a great welcome here and we do not need any excuses to make a deviation to East Soar for a cream tea. Great walks & views all around you. Thanks so much. (I think we... More

Found this whilst walking at Bolt Head, near Salcombe. Help yourselves and leave money, first class, beautiful crockery, spotlessly clean, amazing homemade cakes. Surpassed all expectations, just hope they are open all year round.

What a place. Great location, scenic walks and a warm welcoming family who run it. Try the cakes, homemade by Marijka. Lots of information available in the barn, especially about the local wildlife.

A gentle flat walk from the carpark to the Walker's Hut, great to pop into on way back from a walk to Starehole or Soar Mill. What a fabulous concept. Yes it is make it yourself, but there would not be sufficient folk passing through to warrant full time staff, particularly in adverse weather! So this is perfect for it's... More
