Kitnors Tea Room and Garden, Bossington

While Angelica was horseback riding, and after our peaceful walk along the foot path, we spent some time at Kitnors Tea Room and Garden in Bossington. Part of our plan for visiting tea rooms included the assumption that we would simply 'find them' wherever we went. This was one that we stumbled across, and it just felt like we were at the end of the road in the middle of nowhere, and here it was.

The tea room is in the heart of Bossington. It offers an oasis for many that walk the southwest coastal path. The house was built in the late 15th century. According to a pamphlet that I picked up, the building has been used as a farm, a shop, and a venue for church services. Permission to use the location as a tea room and garden was granted in 1960. As noted on their Facebook page, there has been a recent change in ownership.

The gardens were glorious and in full bloom and offer the chance to relax in idyllic surroundings. The other option is to sit inside where there are pretty pink tablecloths, white lace, and tea related d├ęcor. Tough choice.

They feature Cream Teas, Homemade Cakes and Light Lunches. Daily specials include homemade soup, savory flans, vegetarian dishes, salads, sandwiches, and Ploughmans lunch.

Susanna selected the ploughman's lunch with ham, assorted cheeses, a beautiful salad and hearty bread.

The cream tea came with a generous portion of Devon cream. Yum!

Homemade desserts are made with ingredients sourced from local venders whenever possible. As soon as you walk in the front door, this tempting array of sweet treats greets you!

Another favorite tea room!

I love at the end of the path there is a tearoom and The Herbal Husband would have loved that portion of Devon cream. His comment would have been and where is yours? Thanks for sharing.

I love you philosophy of stopping at tea rooms where ever you find them. This one looks very special. I am going to go to Europe next year with just that philosophy.
