About Us

Cole Manor is the home of Diana and Richard Scott. Tucked away on a country lane between Bruton and Castle Cary. The grounds of the manor span 5 acres of lovingly cared for gardens, with traditional country flowers and shady trees, the river Pit flows along it’s length. It’s a haven for wildlife. Often spotted are woodpeckers, pied wagtails and occasionally a Kingfisher.

The tea room offers panoramic views of the gardens, and is a bright and airy room where you can enjoy a cream tea with freshly baked scones and organic cream or chose from our selection of cakes. You can have anything from a slice of Bara Brith to a succulent and zingy lemon drizzle cake served with Greek yogurt. Or you could start with a light lunch of one of our delicious quiches. We also have speciality teas and freshly ground coffee. From the inside the tea room you can walk over a little bridge and see the old Victorian mill wheel.

On a fine day you can sit at one our many tables in the gardens. Bring a book and settle down by the river, under the gazebo, by the huge magnolia tree or under the yew tree. We also provide blankets so you can sit on the ground and enjoy the peace.

Our friendly staff are here to make sure you are well looked after! The tea rooms are co managed by Helen and Sandy who make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Diana is passionate about baking and makes pretty much everything, and her Sunday Roasts are legendary and hugely popular!
