After a lovely coastal walk to a nearby waterfall we visited this tea room and sat in the garden with our dog. Really lovely fresh crab rolls in a beautiful setting.

Hartland country at its best. Just the drive there is lovely. Gardens close tomorrow so just made it but best of flora over. However such a joy. Delightful tea rooms had a reasonable snack lunch, very nice staff. Also walked in mud to the waterfall, just so worth it. Cleanses the soul and mind to be away from 21st century... More

Was perhaps hoping for more in September. Rough terrain, even to tea shop, and as a disabled visitor it wasn't great. Bit sad really

We read that Docton Mill had the best cream tea in Devon and were definitely not disappointed and it was worth the walk along the coastal path from Hartland Quay. Very generously sized and warm scones, lots of cream and jam, relaxed setting and good service

Docton Mill Gardens The location here is lovely and after you park the car there is a short but very pleasant walk by the side of the mill stream to the tearoom and mill. If you want to look round the gardens the entry fee of £4.50 is payable at the tearoom. We only had tea, which was lovely, and... More

This is our 2nd visit and we were not disappointed. The gardens are even more beautiful and have had extensive work since our last visit. Well worth a wander around. And what can we say about the tea room, apart from 'delicious'. There is a good selection of various sweet and savoury offerings. This is a short review, just make... More

Wonderful oasis in a beautiful setting for lovely fresh crab roll and a Devon cream tea. Perfect in every way. Seems almost every tea room in Devon has won awards for their scones but these really are delicious.

A very lovely peaceful valley. The gardens are very well maintained. The best fruit cake I've ever had!
