Poppys Barn opened late 2019, just before Covid 19 affected us all - known as perfect timing!!!!!


Our first "building" was Poppy's (our Chocolate Labrador) Dog Kennel which was built on the front driveway. We're pleased to say we've come a long way since this 'humble abode' and now you too can share the experience and views from Poppy's Barn in a little more luxury than Poppy did when we first moved here!


Poppy’s Barn Tea Rooms provides refreshing premium drinks, freshly prepared foods, delicious home-made cakes, cream teas, afternoon teas, but more importantly, a welcoming space for all you to unwind.  


Whether you enjoy breakfasts, light lunches, tasty cakes and some of the best teas and coffees available - we have something for everyone.


So if you're cyling along our country lane, walking along the wonderful footpaths, riding through the rugged bridleways or touring our byways, why not take a break at Poppy's Barn Tea Rooms and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a break. As we say-


"Treat Yourself, You Deserve It!"

Our latest addition to our 'meet-n-greet' team.
