There are, needless to say, many good tearooms which you will come across as you explore Exmoor, but the following are a little bit different and worth a visit in their own right. If you would like to recommend a favourite of yours, please get in touch and we’ll visit……any excuse for a cream tea!
Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre, Allerford. This is actually in between Allerford and Bossington and is a great place for tea in the garden with Macaws and chicken scratching about, plus they offer a popular bird of prey experience. Maybe check out the Allerford rural life museum too and make a day of it.
Pulhams Mill http://www.pulhamsmill.co.uk…One of my all time Exmoor favourites. The cakes are irresistable and Sunday lunches superb, all housed in an ancient mill that dates back to 1086. Close to Wimbleball lake for a spot of birdwatching and walking, or childrens activity centre.
Check out their regular events and courses…I still have the spoon I whittled there in full use as the mulled wine stirrer at Christmas!
Kitnors Tea room and garden, Bossington. A delightful place to visit with a potter around the area, beautiful stream and woodland walks nearby, and could be combined with a “proper” walk along the coastal path or up to North Hill…magical.
Toucan Wholefoods Vegetarian Cafe, Minehead….. OK, not strictly Exmoor National Park but you are bound to find yourself in Minehead at some stage and this place is great, friendly with delicious food and lots of holistic type of courses on offer as well, a real hub of all things healthy.
Horner Village. Two great tea rooms and a beautiful place to walk in the woods, or you could combine a visit with a ride at Burrowhayes.
