The South West of England is revered for its stunning coastlines and glorious countryside so what better setting then for a traditional British pastime such as afternoon tea? Afternoon teas and cream teas have been served in the South West for many years, with both Devon and Cornwall laying claim to producing the best clotted cream (the jury is still out!). Indulge in an afternoon of tea and cake in one of the beautiful coastal towns or villages dotted along the coasts of Dorset, Devon or Cornwall and soak up some of the most beautiful sea views in the country. Further up cities such as Bristol have welcomed afternoon tea with open arms and are now home to an abundance of great venues whilst deep in the rolling countryside of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, afternoon tea is served in stately homes, country houses and quaint hotels. The South West is a superb destination for afternoon tea in the UK, and as the main producer of clotted cream, it very well should be!
