A lovely setting for afternoon tea in the old railway station after a visit to the lovingly restored homestead. Huge scones with fresh cream, homemade jam and gallons of freshly brewed tea. Friendly service from the volunteer staff. Highly recommended.

What a little treasure. Stopped here for afternoon tea and scones. Enjoyed the food and chose a table with great view towards Matakana Island. Explored the old homestead. The volunteers are knowledgeable and salt of the earth. Worth checking out.

Very interesting time capsule set in wonderful situation overlooking Athenree area and the sea. My wife loved it and we enjoyed the Devonshire tea served in the old railway station next to the house. Lovely visit.
