Thoroughly enjoyed attending a course on ‘Learning how to smile’ in this beautiful setting. Friendly Buddhists, very informative, tasty food - I’ll definitely be back! Certainly take the time to visit if you’re in the area.

The cafe is extremely good value and although it's mainly soup and sandwiches it is homemade and tasty. Lots of interesting gifts at the shop. You can walk through the woods to the beach which is an added bonus. A wonderful place.
