DESCRIPTION This unique Grade II Listed property has quite a history, we understand it was built in 1865 as a summer sailing residence, for the millionaire tea merchant Sir Thomas Lipton. Originally a small Mansion House and estate, known as Summer Hill it had two adjoining staff cottages, it was later acquired by Henry Pochin of Bodant Garden fame who developed the adjacent much smaller Haulfre Gardens. The whiskey magnet Johnnie Walker then bought the property and sold it to the world renowned Orchid grower Joseph Broome who extended the gardens terraces. In 1929 the gardens where bought by the local council who created a public park and was opend by David Lloyd George MP.
The original Summer Hill was in the early 1930′s turned into a Tea Shop and Gardens by a well known cordon bleu cook Miss Doris Wood and has traded virtually uninterrupted since then, over the last few years the current owners have continued the traditional theme and upgraded the counter/servery area together with kitchen and preparation rooms, they pride themselves on providing quality home cooked and baked produce. The business currently only trades through the main summer season providing morning coffee, light lunches, afternoon teas and we feel there is an opportunity to expand the business into an evening destination eatery/bistro, the location of the property is unique and would be a picturesque location for small wedding parties and al fresco dining during the summer evenings.
