September 2020 - please note the Garden Tea Room only has seating available outside and we have been unable to open the Gift Shop to visitors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since opening in 2005 our award winning Garden Tea Room has become very popular with visitors coming to the gardens. Situated in what used to be Dr Smart's living room where, as you would expect, the views of the garden are stunning at any time of the year. We also have a lovely tea garden area outside so that the views can be enjoyed on sunny days. Our menus change through the season but always include homemade or locally sourced selection of cakes, soups, hot dish specials, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, salads and of course homemade scones for our special Devon Cream Teas. We also have Gluten Free cakes, scones and lunches available and Gluten Free options.

The Gift Shop is located inside the Tea Room, and offers a variety of gifts and mementoes of the Garden for sale.

All profits from the Tea Room and Gift Shop sales go towards the maintenance of the Garden.
