Very friendly and accomodating staff. Lovely garden and if you are up to it a little walk down to a pretty waterfall.

A beautiful garden in spring full bloom. A meandering but sometimes challenging walk around a series of various "allotments", each with its own attractiveness and hues. A lovely thirty-minute trek to Speke's Mill Beach, and a very acceptable menu for refreshments afterwards.

Beautiful gardens and tea rooms. There's a lovely walk to the cove which takes about 30 mins each way. Map available from the tea room.

Small but beautiful woodland garden but beware some steps and paths could be difficult for some people to acces, and steps were slippy in places. Go with good shoes on. Definitely worth it if you can though. Very tranquil. Good little tea room with friendly service if a little slow but sitting out in the garden meant that was ok.... More

After a lovely coastal walk to a nearby waterfall we visited this tea room and sat in the garden with our dog. Really lovely fresh crab rolls in a beautiful setting.

Hartland country at its best. Just the drive there is lovely. Gardens close tomorrow so just made it but best of flora over. However such a joy. Delightful tea rooms had a reasonable snack lunch, very nice staff. Also walked in mud to the waterfall, just so worth it. Cleanses the soul and mind to be away from 21st century... More

Was perhaps hoping for more in September. Rough terrain, even to tea shop, and as a disabled visitor it wasn't great. Bit sad really
