For a one-of-a-kind indulgence, Tregothnan's in Truro is the Afternoon Tea experience you've been looking for. Starting with a walk through beautiful private gardens, guests can then enjoy cream tea in the country's foremost British tea estate.
Since 1344, this historic site has been home to the Viscount Falmouth and his family and is one of the few remaining working estates. They pioneered foreign farming in Britain and through ingenius methods, have finally given tea a home on British soil for the first time in history.
An idyllic walk through the grounds sets the tone for the day, two hours of exploring luscious greenery and botanical gardens, plus visits to some of their tea plantations, before settling in for world-class tea.
Choose from an extensive range of teas, from simple classics like Green Tea and Earl Grey to more exotic flavours such as Manuka Tea, a New Zealand tea famous for its medicinal properties.
