It has fantastic views over the mouth of the river Ex, and is filled with trinkets and curios from their travels through Europe.
I have to say, I also had one of the best cream teas ever at a National Trust property. The (single but good) scone was warmly baked, and it had a very generous amount of cream and jam to slather on top. Very nice.
Also, places like this make me wish I could take photos "properly", without people wandering around, and with my tripod. It would definitely make a big difference to the quality.
