Cream first – always

It’s a controversial topic that people in the South West can get very hot under the collar about. The ‘Jam First/Cream First’ debate is one that will always live on! Personally I’d go for cream, then jam, then a bit more cream. You can never have too much clotted cream 😂

This lovely specimen of a Devon cream tea is from @pattardrestaurant. Saunter just 10mins down the pretty narrow lanes towards Hartland from @coastalcabins and you’ll stumble upon this hidden gem.

Traditional devon barn from the outside, and Scandinavian chic inside it’s the perfect pit stop offering lunches, cream teas and evening meals Wednesday to Sunday.

I could have eaten everything on the menu (#eatingfortwo), but I opted for bubble and squeak topped with the best ham hock i’ve ever tasted. And just LOOK at that raspberry chocolate cheesecake brownie.

Child friendly and right on the doorstep! Win win. Be sure to #bookahead as once the word gets out this place is sure to book up quick!


We are fully booked @coastalcabins for August but there a still a few spaces for a September escape or 2021 holiday.
