Laura Ashley tea rooms

Had a lovely afternoon tea, the food and presentation was very good and so was the service. We were given the choice of tables and chose the tables looking out over the beautiful views, unfortunately these weren't laid out with tablecloths like the others in the tearoom, surely this could easily of been done!
The main reason I gave this score was the Tea rooms didn't have its own toilets so you had to use the ones in the changing rooms, the floors were wet and disgusting and one toilet didn't flush and was quite full!!!
Such a shame as the actual tea was very good.

Best wedding ever!

Having attended a wedding yesterday, I felt I had to write and compliment the Highbullen team on a job really well done. Fantastic surroundings, service and really delicious food. Cracking! We stayed over and found our room to be well appointed and comfortable. The wedding was managed by a gentleman called Wayne whose indefatigable determination and energy in creating a wonderful day was admired by all


What a great little find this was!!
So glad we came here. Beautiful views all around. Every member of staff we came into contact with were so friendly.
Room was huge, light airy and overlooked a lovely little courtyard with a patio door straight out to it. We stayed in room 45 and has it's own little parking area too. Bathroom was large. Bed was lovely and comfy.
We had dinner in the cellar and the food was amazing!!! Next time we will try the Devon Views resturant.
Lovely local gins.
Breakfast was beautiful, especially getting to take in the views and loved the local produce - could definitely taste the difference!!
We had an all day spa package and tried out the spa - lovely pool, sauna and jacuzzi. Be wary of where you sit in the steam room as can burn legs if sat directly opposite the door (sit second seats in and you wont feel the burn).
We had afternoon tea in the laura ashley outside terrace area and I'm glad we shared an afternoon tea. Portions are large so wouldn't have been able to have eaten one to myself (and saw others struggle too). The afternoon tea items are to die for! Beautiful desserts. The staff there are just so lovely and nothing was too much trouble! Very attentive also. We will DEFINATELY be back and we cant wait to return soon.
