Whilst shopping in Montville, we looked for a cool, quiet place to stop for lunch. Camphor Cottage fitted the bill. Shaded by giant trees, soft breezes what more could we ask .
Staff were friendly, lunch was scrumptious and even the lizards enjoyed our company. Without a doubt, we will return!

Have eaten here previously. Quick stop for morning tea including 'best scones' in Montville. Staff always friendly which is nice. On this occasion the tea was extremely weak, quite a large pot but very small quantity of tea leaves. Didn't matter how long we waited, it could only infuse so much. Sultana scones were nice although jam want the best and also small quantities. The cream, whilst ok, was not a good clotted cream which really make a great Devonshire tea.

All in all, quite disappointing but seriously, tea doesn't cost that much so an extra teaspoon or two would have been great for the pot. Felt like it was simply drinking hot water, milk and small amount of tea.

We passed this gift shop/cafe on the way into Montville Main Street from a car park at the back of the town (good parking too) and noticed the emphasis on great scones on the various billboards outside.
After the customary walk up one side and down the other side of the street we decided to try out the scones and soup and coffee. All were excellent, and hot ... always a bonus.
It was a quiet day and very relaxed.

This is a neat place to sit and relax with a cup of good quality tea (they do coffee too...) and enjoy the atmosphere. The staff are wonderful.
