Lucy’s Tearoom

Lucy’s Tearoom

Another Top Cake Stop!

Lucy’s Farmhouse Tea Room is another example of a place I have driven past many times on my way to somewhere else.  Well that has been a mistake, I really must make more time to just visit places like this.  So after a good stomp around Wayford Woods this was finally the excuse I needed. Writing a blog really does have its advantages!

Cream Tea and Paninis

Set on what was a working family farm called Oathill,  this business has developed into a small caravan park with touring pitches, holiday lodges and B&B rooms.  The tearoom is in the front of the 18th century farmhouse,  although we were lucky enough to have the weather to sit in the pretty front garden.

Our host Sam was bright and bubbly. She immediately engaged with the children and sent them off looking for the fairy house front doors hidden in the garden (read more about why they are here in my post on Wayford Woods).  There is also a little animal area where the children were pleased to see ducks and rabbits, another nice distraction for fidgeting little ones.

Afternoon Tea

We enjoyed our lunch but had to head off rather sharpish to pick a friend up from the train station,  but it turns out there is much more to Oathill Farm than I first realised.  Sam told me there is also a nature trail and a fishing lake as well as local footpaths running through their land (ok for dog walking).  She generously said that her and her family are happy for people to just come a enjoy the lovely outdoor space and lake area with their own picnic, even if they don’t use the cafe (which of course would be a mistake).  I have no doubt this is a genuine offer but I suggest you call ahead first to ask before you rock up and start wandering around,  just out of courtesy if nothing else.

While we waited we headed off to see the animals.  The sign on the enclosure said no entry but I’m guessing that if you were staying here or asked it would be ok to go in under supervision.  I was also impressed with the lovely flat camping field, lots of space to run around and this area is clear when there are no caravan or tent bookings.  If you are local and looking for a little camping adventure with friends and children or want to test a new caravan or tent this could be a good place to head for.

So there you go, another lovely local spot that I intend to return to and explore further.

From the A35 at the Hunter Lodge / Lyme Regis junction, turn towards Crewkerne on the B3165. The tearoom is on the right after approx. 9 miles,  also signed Oathill Farm.
