Had two lovely trips to this tea cottage last week. Delicious food, cakes to rival Great British Bake Off, lovely service, toys for little children and a beautiful garden with lots of little hideaways in it. highly recommended!

Really friendly staff. Perfect setting. Beautiful gardens. Had Devon ploughmans with 3 west country cheeses and a Devon cream tea. Really tasty fruit scones with a hint of orange. Gorgeous. Have visited three times now, the best recommendation.

After a visit to the beach, we needed some refreshments before the trek back up the hill to our campsite, so stopped in here for some lunch. The whole place is so lovely, with a beautiful garden, full of winding paths, flowers and greenery, with tables dotted around, tucked amongst the trees and plants, each with a little vase or...

Great cakes, nice coffee and tea - and in probably one of the most beautiful settings you could imagine for a cafe. On a sunny day, to sit in a perfect English country garden and be served tea and scones - well, it doesn't really get better than that...

We have visited here several times. The walk/drive down to it from Valley of the Rocks is a delight. It is at it's best when the sun is shining. The tables are dotted around the quaint garden in a higgledy piggledy way. The menu is on the table and on the chalkboard by the hut where you order your food,... More

The Lee Abbey Tea Cottage is a delight. We had been past a few times during our holiday but somehow never made it through the door. On our last day we made a special effort to visit, and it was well worth delaying our drive home. The gardens were beautiful, the staff were extremely friendly, the cakes were delicious and... More

I came across Tea Cottage whilst walking the coast path from Lynmouth to Hunters Inn. The first thing that struck me was the attractive cottage in an idyllic peaceful sylvan setting with tables dotted around the lovely garden. The coffee had to be one of the best around and at £2 for a cafatiere holding nearly two mugs full it... More
