The Rambling Rose was recommended to us by the owner of our holiday rental. We had breakfast there twice. We loved the beautiful patio and enjoyed their fabulous food. Their home baked goods are especially good.

A wishing well provides great entertainment for the kids.Breakfast is served untill 4pm, lunch menu is displayed on chalk boards as it changes according to season, and what is growing on the farm. All cakes, croissants and muffins are hand made on site and are worth a try!
