The location of the tea room is simply stunning, on the top level of a tiered garden overlooking a tranquil wooded valley. The owners, Karen and Mark, made us feel like old friends. We had a
good chat while the refreshments were being prepared.

A range of delicious cakes were on offer along with excellent tea and coffee. The proprietor's lovely dogs protected us from squirrels whilst we ate!! We would recommend this tea room to anyone. We are hoping to move into the area shortly and will certainly make this our local tea room.

Me and my partner visited here after going for a look around bakewell. We saw the ratings on trip adviser and thought we would check it out . We were pleasantly surprised . The views were beautiful along with a huge slice of lemon drizzle cake and lovely cup of tea all for a great price. The couple who run the tea room were very friendly and helpful with directions to the river . Very thoughtful of them to tel us another way as I wasn't exactly wearing the correct footwear . Couldn't falt anything we wil be back again and definitely recommend them to anyone .x

After looking on TripAdvisor and seeing the excellent rating the Garden Tea Room had, we decided to explore the area and stop there for tea and cake. The tea room is set in the owners garden/terrace with the cakes all set out in the kitchen. It's situated in a lovely place with beautiful views. There was a large selection of cakes which were very reasonabley priced as the slices were huge and tasted great! The Bakewell tart was one of the best I've had and better than most of the ones you can buy in Bakewell! The hosts, Mark and Karen were lovely and very welcoming. We will definitely be returning :)
