A fabulous place for an afternoon tea / coffee stop after exploring the rocks at Croyde. Latte was delicious as was the caramel shortbread :)

Have walked to Baggy Point many times but this was our first visit to the Sandleigh Tea Rooms. A delightful little place with a large walled garden which is quite a sun trap on the right day. The attention to detail and the quality of the food made it for us. Little things like the freshness of the side salad... More

Set in a perfect location in a walled garden on Croyde Bay and at the start of the path to Baggy Point, Sandleigh Tea Rooms is a great place for a coffee, a cream tea or their excellent home made food - and it's always good to check out the crop in the allotment plots within the walled garden which...

This is an NT run cafe and gift shop just off the beach at Baggy Point. The food was excellent and the surroundings very well kept though rather small. Expensive but nice for a treat and good to support the NT as we are members!

Visited twice, both times very crowded. The building needs to be larger as there are only 4 tables. Drinks are good although cakes a bit pricey.

We visited this tea shop twice during our weekend trip to North Devon. Our boys enjoyed the pasties, and the homemade spinach and ricotta tart was delicious. The cakes were yummy (yoghurt topped berry flapjack was amazing) and my husband thought that the cream teas were excellent (the accompanying strawberries were an extra treat) We suffered from inclement weather and...

Lovely tea rooms and shop. Had the best fresh crab sandwich I have ever had and my son had the nicest cream tea - delicious scones with cream, jam and strawberries all in separate pots and plenty of tea - v good value and very friendly service. Went three times in one week as couldn't find anywhere nicer for lunch... More

Absolutely stunning setting. But £4.20 for a pot of tea for two...£4.20! £4.20! For a dribble of hot water and two tea bags. Oop north you'd get laughed at if you tried to charge this. My tip: take a flask and have your tea on the beach! To be fair, it's not your run of the mill place, it is... More

We hadn't read any other reviews before we visited so I didn't have any expectations. We saw the National Trust signs so assumed it would be good. I ordered 2 soft drinks, 1 pasty & a slice of lemon cake & nearly fell over when I was told it was £15! I clarified that it was only the one pasty... More

Just a lovely secluded place to have home made food in a delightful garden. Really friendly and helpful staff
