It was my Mums birthday and she does like a tearoom so I went looking on the internet. Found that the Garden Tea room was rated No 1 in Bakewell so contacted Karen to ask if we could bring a candle for the cake. She was great , responded very quickly and promised not to sing as per my request. Both Karen and Mark were as delightful as their house and cakes. What a treat to visit this great tearoom in a lovely village, the views about are beautiful and worth the detour as the tea room is about five minutes outside of Bakewell. Don't be put off though, make the effoft to visit as the village setting is lovely and the tea rooms have wonderful seating with views over the surrounding countryside.
Karen and Mark make their own cakes and really you need to be sure to ask to take away cake as the choice is too good - you could not try a bit of everything like you may want to. I had the lemon drizzle cake, Mum had treacle tart and my friend had the carrot cake. We all offered the other a taste but were all relieved when no-one wanted to swap even a little bit of theirs. In fact our table grew very quiet when the cake arrived.....
Karen even gave my Mum a birthday card. How is that for customer service?
Please visit you will not be disappointed.
Thanks for a lovely treat Karen and Mark.
