The Orangery

The Orangery Tearooms are open for light refreshments and sweet treats on days when the house is open.  Choose from a traditional Devon cream tea, a homemade quiche or any of the other delicious homemade offerings available. Please see our menu as a guide, however bear in mind as items are homemade, not all items will be available everyday.


Our Labrador Tilly loves sharing her garden with other well behaved dogs, but sadly they are not admitted into the House on tours (except guide dogs) – not even she is allowed upstairs!  Please ensure any furry friends are kept on a lead at all times in the grounds and you clean up after your dog for the convenience of other visitors.
