This secret treasure is one you should definitely seek out if you fancy fine chocolates. Whilst the cafe is a fair way off the main road, and the car park can be a little rustic in inclement weather, the hot drinks and chocolates are worth...More

The trip down the endless side road is not worth taking unless you ring first to ensure they are open. Don't expect glamour, but a rustic barn-type cafe with simple choices for cakes. The chocolates have a wide range of flavours and are nicely presented.

This beautiful hidden treasure was perfect for us. The scones were amazing as were the iced coffees. We got some chocolates to take home and they were so delicious. Will visit here again and recommend to friends for sure!

My family and I visited this place which is nothing special (toilets are outdoors). Inside, the shop is spacious enough but the heroes are the chocolates. What a beautiful sight, each chocolate is a work of art, with an enticing aroma and the flavour out...More
