Excellent visit. Staff were wonderful, helping me with my broken French (thank you). The crepes were magnificent. A piece of living history, see you next year, and thanks to Bev at Spring Harvest for organising the walk to the windmill.
Our most local bike ride from Sallertaine. Easily reached with small children on bikes. Always welcoming. Delicious coffee and crepes... Or cider. We always by some caramels too.
Lovely building and equally lovely staff
