Afternoon Tea in Cornwall

A fabulously British tradition!

Afternoon teas have been enjoyed in the lounges and gardens of The Penventon Park Hotel since the early 1800’s, when it was known as ‘Parkanhal’.

What finer way is there to celebrate or mark an occasion, than by indulging in a sumptuous selection of freshly cut sandwiches, delightful cakes almost too good to eat, and freshly baked scones with homemade preserves and lashings of Cornish clotted cream. Complete with your choice of tea from our fine selection, perfect to share with friends or loved ones.

After all, who needs an excuse to enjoy tea and cake in great company.
