“A little gem worth searching for”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Not easy to find but this tea room is worth searching for. A beautiful garden, lovely cake with very generous servings and lashings of tea. If you get to Over Haddon don't miss it! We will be back

“A hidden delight”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

After reading reviews on trip adviser paid a visit on a walk from Bakewell and were so pleased we did. Wonderful views, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cakes to die for. They even cater for dogs! We were so relaxed we could have stayed all afternoon. Just go down the hill past the church on the left and you'll see it on the right hand side.

“This Peak District's hidden secret is a jewel!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is a delightful little tea room, it feels like you're VIP, such lovely owners, the cakes are huge and to die for, the coffee is great, and the views will make you want to stay forever. Well worth it, especially before/after rambling down Lathkill Dale! Oh, also, very, very dog-friendly, which makes for a nice change :-)!

We are very pleased you enjoyed your visit to us, thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. The Lathkill Dale is lovely and well worth the walk. Doggies get served first and we are hopefully maintaining the standard of biscuits we offer, Teddy and Maisie are our quality control. We hope to see you again soon and once again thank you for the kind review. Kindest regards Karen, Mark, Teddy and Maisie.
