After a morning at the Buckfast Butterfly and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary, we headed out for a drive to explore more of beautiful Dartmoor. Despite my mum's car struggling to deal with the crazy hills and having to keep an eye out for wild ponies, we ended up at the wonderfully hidden but still incredibly popular Badgers Holt.
My mum and sister had been here before and they suggested we get the Badgers Holt special cream tea, which comes with two slabs of scone rather than individual, circular scones. This also means we could share - especially as there was no way I could eat all that with my gastric band.
Even though the place was fairly busy, our food and drinks arrived before my sister and I even got outside after a quick browse of the gift shop.
As well as cream teas, they also have a great selection of homemade cakes, desserts and main meals, which has made me want to go back for a full meal in the future.
Not only is the food great, there is also a fair bit to see around the restaurant. The river is scattered with huge rocks so you can head down stream for an explore without getting your feet wet. There's also a farm as you walk up the road with animals that are sure to entertain kids - just don't touch the top of the fence as it's electric! (my sister almost found out the hard way)
