Christmas opening at Watersmeet House

The Tea-room will be open every day 11am - 3pm from Saturday 26 December through to Friday 1 January


The bracing winter air on a crisp winters day can be the perfect time to stretch your legs on one of our walks. Numerous trails criss cross the beautiful east Lyn Valley passing Watersmeet, you just have to choose one that suits you. Park at Countisbury and make Watersmeet your lunchtime stop or opt for something a little gentler with a stroll from Watersmeet up the East Lyn river.

Eating and drinking

We have a simple ‘Winter Warmer’ menu that should tempt the most dedicated couch potato to venture out. Warming hot chocolate, soups and cakes will be served from our tea-room. Hopefully it will be dry enough to sit on the terrace overlooking the river while watching the birds but if not we have added extra indoor seating so you won't even have to brave the cold.
