Privately owned historic 50 acre gardens surround the spectacular family home set in the rolling hills of Devon. Come and enjoy a picnic in the grounds or visit the garden kiosk for a cream tea. Walks take you through the Millennium Garden, Walled Garden Woodland Gardens, past follies, statues and temples. Walk up to the Castle and enjoy spectacular views.

Delicious homemade fayre with friendly service and very efficient. You can visit the tearoom without paying for entry to the delightful gardens which is a nice option. Definitely recommend the homemade soups and scones.
