Discover Talland Bay

Pause for thought & a pick me up

An afternoon tea is a slow affair, that cultivates quality time with those you care about. It’s a rejuvenating interlude during hot summers and a cosy moment in the chill mid-winter. It’s time well spent.

Traditional or tipsy

Afternoon teas have evolved since 1840 when Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, decided that afternoons were shamefully foodless. 

At Talland Bay tuck into a moreish selection of fresh homemade cakes, sandwiches, and scones—accompanied by tea, coffee, or perhaps a crisp glass of bubbly or a G&T.  There’s nothing wrong with making merry in the afternoon. You’re on holiday after all.

Picnic in the Garden

Leisurely garden picnics

What are pretty gardens for, if not for picnicking? You can enjoy your afternoon tea spread out on our lawn. Watch the white tipped waves and while away the afternoon beneath our great pines. Ask us about our picnic bags when you arrive.
