Tea Cup Tuesday-Tea Rooms

Hello All and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday once again!
Today I am sharing with you some images of Tea rooms I saw while in England.
The first photo above is in Romsey, King John's House. This dwelling is about 800 years old. There are beautiful walled gardens surrounding it, with gorgeous flowers, and fruit growing on the walls. Inside the house is a lovely tea room. A total delight to visit.
Here I am in Lyndhurst at another tea room that I think some of you might love. I did not get a chance to go inside, but it looked really fanciful on the outside.
The photo above is the sign handing above the next tea room, in Honiton. You have to walk down a narrow passage to reach it, on one side the passage opens onto a tea garden. The walk is full of flowers in planters as well.
It is very charming inside. The tables were all set with tea cups and plates just waiting for hungry and thirsty customer. And this place has gluten free options as well.
This is one of the sweetest little tea room, down a very tiny lane in Port Isaac.
And this tea room (which I forgot to take a photo of the exterior of the building) is in Tintagel. The inside is very traditional yet cozy. I have the absolute worst leek and potato soup there! See my dear hubby at our table?
These are their scones. They were not gluten free so I did not get to have any, but they were heavenly to look at!
I also wanted to share with you this beautiful tea pot I saw at an antique shop in Honiton. It is quite large, maybe holding 12 cups. The price, if I remember correctly, was about $32 USD. If I could have brought it home safely, I would have bought it!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. I think I have caught up with every one from the last two T.T. I really enjoyed seeing all your posts (and being able to comment again! Yay!).
Next week I will be sharing a tea cup trio, and a lovely little limoges tea pot I did get to bring home from our trip.

And believe it or not, I am on another trip! I will be home again in a few days.
Hugs to you All,
Terri

Hi Terri....the linky didn't work. Thanks again for the wonderful photos. Taking tea at the small tea shops in the UK is so fab! I got nostalgic looking at your photos. Thanks for posting!

Wow! You are just so busy traveling, Terri. How fun! Lovely tea room and I love that teapot too. Too bad you didn't buy it...Christine

The one thing we have an abundance of here in the UK is tea shops! The one in Honiton I have been to; Honition is about 30 minutes from here and the last time I was there, it was noticeable that there was less antique shops; a sign of the times I guess. I also recognised the one in Tintagel, as the company I worked for had a store there and I would infrequently do store visits. I also loved the blue and white Kettle!

Terri, I adored this post!!! It has whetted my desire to truly explore England. I've been to London, but that's all and I know there is much, much more to see. I would be curious to know how one plans such a trip, when you initially don't know anything about the country. I also want to invite you to participate in my link party on the 15th of each month called Travels Near And Far.
Hugs, and thank you so much for sharing this great post!!!! ~Beth

What a great trip. I enjoyed seeing all those English tea rooms (amazing scones). That blue and white teapot was pretty and the hanging kettles sign was a clever advert.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What fun! And how charming the tea room with the tea kettles hanging outside. Thanks for sharing your adventures with us.

Blessings,
Sandi

Terri -

Thanks for posting all the tea shoppe photos. I loved looking at them. So sorry about the bad potatoe and leek soup though - lol! And what a gadabout you've become, another trip, lucky girl! Enjoy yourself.

Terri, thank you for sharing your wonderful England visit...what a delight to see all the sites and quaint tea rooms. I just love quaint places. And I am enthralled with 800 year old buildings...I often imagine all the history behind it.

Enjoy your new trip!

Linda, Devon and Cornwall are lovely places to visit, and hopefully the weather should be nice. It is beautiful today - 23 degrees centigrade and a gentle breeze and lovely sunshine; alas when it rains it is a bleak place!Fingers crossed for your visit.

Beautiful tea rooms Terri. I wish we had one near me. I look forward to seeing the teapot you brought back with you. Thank you for hosting.

Dear Terri,
What a great post. Thanks for sharing all of this. I have been on vacation and absent from the party and really missed it. I kept hoping I could photograph some of my friend's cups but didn't see anything quite right.
Hopefully next week!
Hugs,
