Tarts On Thursday - Hotel Tresanton

As the seasons shift we still tend to think of cake but travelling too. Especially, if we can fit Afternoon Tea in. There are numerous obvious examples of great or innovative service. Our favourite by far is at the Hotel Tresanton on the edge of St Mawes. There aren't many hotel staff who greet every guest as if they are truly special.

After years of searching we've found one and they deserve to be lauded for it.  Is this what visiting a Four Seasons Hotel is like? We don't know yet, all we know is that the Afternoon Tea is reasonably priced and sitting in such effortlessly chic, serene surroundings is utter BLISS. We travelled miles for this and it was worth every penny or pound in this case (£10.00 - tea, slices of lemon drizzle cake, brownie and scones with jam and clotted cream).

If you go tell us what you think - you won't be disappointed and if the sun is out you may even get to sit on the Terrace. Bellex


  1. Have been to the Tresanton for tea quite a few times and its always brill. Like you say the staff are wonderful and friendly, they make you feel special even if you are not a resident guest! Jane

  2. Hi Jane we only wish we lived closer! Star quality treatment like this is hard to find. Betty
