Just inside the entrance to Coombe woods is a very pretty pond and some pretty well tended gardens too which I imagine will look beautiful in the coming Spring/Summer months. We had a short stroll in the gardens, the snowdrops were lovely to see as well as the lovely pansies but we did not walk as far as the woods due to time constraints We decided to stop at the Coach House Cafe in it's lovely courtyard surroundings . We did not dine, we just had a pot of tea but the food in the chiller cabinet looked delicious from scones to divine looking cakes. I did read the menus on the tables and the cafe offered a wide and extensive selection of reasonably priced meals from breakfasts to main meals and snacks. I noticed on the menu that the cafe was open until 9.30 pm in the Summer months.
On a shelf in the cafe there were very pretty ceramic hearts to buy of all sizes.
We would certainly visit this cafe again
