The best cream tea in Devon

Condé Nast Traveller

 

‘Work up an appetite with a walk through the secret grottos, glades and rose-wreathed arches of the Humphry Repton-designed gardens, before taking your seat in the wood-panelled dining room, terrace or parterre and gawp at sweeping views of the Tamar River. The bespoke Wedgewood crockery is inspired by the gardens’.
