Lovely little tearoom, very nice cream tea & amazing cherry cheesecake. Would’ve loved to look around the windmill but we left it too late in the day to do so so a return visit is on the cards.

Arrived at 11.00 to have late breakfast which was superb. Also bought cakes and bread at the bakery. Only suggestion is to use cardboard cake boxes for iced buns and not paper bags, to which the icing sticks too. Would come back again.
