National Cream Tea Day 2017

If you are at one of our Devon or Cornwall caravan parks this weekend, you are in the best places you could possibly be on National Cream Tea Day! Whether you do it the Devon way and put the cream first, or the Cornish way with the jam first you will find some of the best Cream Tea’s in the country in Devon & Cornwall.

Here are our favourite 7 places to find Cream Tea on your Devon & Cornwall Holidays:

Tea on the Green, Westward Ho!

Overlooking the sea, Tea on the Green in Westward Ho! Is famous for their Creams Teas both sweet and savoury, with over 6 different ones to chose from and their brand new one "The Misfits" - one fruit or plain scone and one cheese scone with accompanying jam, cream, chutney and cream cheese.

Hele Corn Mill, Ilfracombe 

Three times winner of Devon Life's Best Tearoom award, this tearoom is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Devonshire cream tea. All items in our tearoom are baked by the miller's wife on the premises. 

With a range of cream teas available; as well as fruit or plain scones, they also offer Devonshire splits for a truly traditional cream tea experience. If you'd like something a bit different, try the thunder and lightning (scones with clotted cream and golden syrup) or a savoury cream tea (cheese scones served with cream cheese and our prize-winning caramelised onion marmalade)!
