Woods Cafe is a beautiful cottage cafe in the middle of Cardinham Woods. Open all year round, we serve warming home-made stews and soups in the winter and doorstop sandwiches with an ever changing specials menu throughout the summer. The cream teas are fantastic and the cakes are always fresh. We try to use local produce and suppliers where possible.

Amazing cream teas in a peaceful setting. Went for a walk round Cardinham woods and enjoyed a break in the cafe and the kids enjoyed the play area

There is a beautifully refurbished 2 bedroom flat above the cafe that few people realise is a holiday let!! We stayed here last weekend for a family wedding and we were not disappointed. After a warm welcome & a delicious lunch in the coffee shop, we were shown our 'digs'. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy with some basic compliamentry essentials... More

While planning a month's tour of southwestern England and seeking a good lunch stop to break up the drive from Exeter to Lizard, I somehow lucked into a reference to this little jewel in a setting of lush greenery and perfect peace. It was not easy to find, being at the end of a genuine country lane no wider than... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here with friends & family on a very rainy day when we'd enjoyed a dog walk around the woods first. The staff are very attentive - providing my breast feeding friend with a glass of water without even asking; now that is outstanding customer service in my book. The food was tasty & great too. Looking... More

We were the first guests in the flat above the cafe and it was absolutely fabulous! I have literally travelled to the four corners of the earth but this was idyllic in every sense. Dave and Lara, the owners, are utterly charming and have made the flat home from home. Lara's attention to detail is incredible and we have wanted... More
