Cheristow Lavender tearooms and gardens
Wholesome, organic, homemade fayre on a traditional pedigree beef farm in rural North Devon

Welcome to Cheristow lavender

Cheristow Lavender is a traditionally run low impact beef farm with a small tearoom specialising in wholesome, organic, homemade fayre. We have a wonderful Lavender garden which overlooks the tearoom which is open from March to the end of October, Wednesday to Saturday.

There are extensive informal gardens in the Secret Garden which is open to the public from mid June to mid September.


We have reduced our menu to include homemade organic scones, clotted cream and homemade jam; homemade teacakes, and savoury scones.


I am so sorry for all of you who have come to visit us for our infamous crustless homity pie, and our homemade pasties made with our own beef.

We have decided to take all hot food off the menu. We have started to make lovely savoury scones inluding organic cheese; steak and stilton; and beef and onion. I do hope you enjoy our new selection.

The tearoom is not a fast food outlet, and we hope visitors will take time to relax, enjoy playing a game in the informal gardens, or one of the board games inside. There are books, magazines, games and puzzles for your enjoyment.

The informal and casual gardens are a combination of lavender, roses and wild flowers interspersed with wildlife friendly plantings. They are looked after by volunteers and provide a lovely quiet space to relax. You are welcome to help with the weeding!
