We often stop here as part of a walk in the local area. The coffee shop has an outside area and it is possible to sup tea and look over the gardens. Usual National Trust standard of tea and cake - and friendly service.More

Visited this NationalTrust tea room for lunch one day and tea and cake the next day. Sat inside for lunch because of torrential rain and then outside the next afternoon after a full days walk. The Derbyshire Tea Loaf was delicious
