This Friday is National Cream Tea Day, and there are few better places to celebrate it than in our wonderful Devon.
I’m very fond of a cream tea and have no strong feelings about the order of the jam and cream -maybe it’s because I’m not from the South west originally? Either way, I’m happy as long as they’re both involved!
Dartmoor is a great source of cream tea providers, and I’ve recently posted about Powdermills Pottery & Café, where your scones are served on ceramics created on the spot.
Another favourite spot on the moor for partaking in this treat is Ullacombe Farm Shop & Café, where the children can play in their lovely play area while you decide whther to pick fruit scones or plain scones – decisions, decisions!
Just down the road is Parke with its Home Farm Café, which has a dog friendly annex where you can either replenish after exploring the woodlands or stock up on energy before starting your walk (or both!)
Closer to Exeter, we love Cakeadoodledo @ Quickes with it’s gorgeous play corner and lovely outside play area, A La Ronde Café which has amazing views across the estuary and the lovely café at Topsham Museum which specialises in cream teas in its beautiful river front garden. You could include it in a lovely loop stroll along the Goat Walk too.
Wherever you find to enjoy this fab event, be sure to let us know what you thought (and which way is really right!) 🙂
