Cakes & Bakes


“OMG... Delish!”

Oh, I don’t know. You spend all day baking a sumptuous chocolate fudge cake smothered in rich ganache or a light, delicate, zesty lemon drizzle cake, and all you get is an ‘OMG… Delish’?

Actually, we’re happy with that. And, all joking aside, we are seriously good at cake.

If you are staying with us for a few nights, why not order some of our delicious home baked afternoon tea treats to enjoy in the guest drawing room.

Or, if you want a more memorable special event with friends and family, our vintage Afternoon Teas go down a treat with guests and the locals. Just ask Ciara when making your overnight reservation, and we will see if we can prepare something especially for you.

We also have a baking list from which you can order some of our fabulous home-baked treats to take away and enjoy at home.

Or, if you’re having a dinner party, let us take care of dessert. Simply order something utterly delicious, hide the box and take the credit.

We won’t tell anyone if you won’t.

Here are just a few of our more popular bakes. If you’d like a full list of what’s on offer, just get in touch!
