A unique Tea Room with a very personal feel. We have enjoyed many fabulous lunches in the beautiful tranquil garden. Scones with cream, jam and strawberries were the best we have ever tasted. If you're visiting North Devon - it is well worth a visit.

After a gorgeous walk over Baggy, its always good to sit in the Sandleigh with a cup of tea and a fresh warm scone with home made jam and clotted cream . Devine. It does get very busy as its only small, and not many places to sit. Sandwiches and pasties seem to be quite expensive , but the pot... More

Great spot with a beautiful garden nice tea and cake but very slow service and only about one table inside so you need a warm and still day as we got quite cold and wind blown.

Found sandleigh after walking from woolacombe, was the perfect place for a much needed fuel stop before walking back. Could hardly eat the prawn sandwich as there was so much filling. Cream tea lovely too. Nice garden setting.

Called in here after walking along the cliff tops, had a coffee and a bacon sandwich which was very nice. The cafe has seating inside, in a garden and in a courtyard area where we sat in the sunshine, all very pleasant.

It was delightful sitting in the garden on a sunny day. Whilst the coffee was enjoyable my personal preference would have been for this to have been a little stronger and perhaps I should have asked for another shot in my cappuccino. Our cakes were just yummy. So glad we popped in and would have no hesitation in doing so... More

My husband and I together with our little baby stumbled upon this cafe after a short stroll down a little coastal path. We each had the Devon cream tea and although a little on the expensive side as we had to pay extra to have it with coffee, (neither of us like tea!) it was a real treat. I can... More
