Just had the best cream tea of our visit to Devon, by some margin. The scones were simply delicious, with lots of great flavours, including ginger. Tea served in proper China cups. Lovely setting on top of the cliffs.

yes, but is difficult in the summer time, it is possible to park in the " Walls Hill Down " car park next to the "Old Coach House " pub, you will have to pay, but worth the walk if you have time.

Not sure. I would think so. Perhaps phone them if you need to clarify. The teas are really scrumptious. Enjoy.

A little taste of heaven in a beautiful part of Devon! Angels is a perfect place for Devonshire Cream Tea looking onto the seafront in Babbacombe. Very popular with the locals and recommended to holiday makers.
