Cornish Tea

July – October 2017

A much favoured pastime, Afternoon tea will be celebrated here at The Idle Rocks.  We have teamed up with local Tregothnan Estate; the only producer of tea in England. By prior arrangement you will experience a guided tour of the estate, where Tregothnan will share their journey and all things tea related.

Arrive at The Idle Rocks, once settled into your room, enjoy full afternoon tea served in the restaurant or on the terrace accompanied by locally produced Tregothnan tea.

Enjoy a relaxing night’s sleep in one of our sea view rooms.

After a full Cornish Breakfast set off to Tregothnan Estate where you will meet your guide for the day at the estate shop, either at 10am or 2pm. Your Garden walk will take in some of the largest Camellias and Rhododendrons in the world, the rolling landscape of the spectacular Himalayan Valley and tea plantation and some of the rarest plants species on Earth. The tour will then take you to their contemporary tea bar where you can taste some of the inimitable Tregothnan products home grown in Britain’s first ever tea plantation and learn about their journey from bush to cup, including how the teas are prepared and blended, using traditional methods of rolling and oxidising the leaves.

Following an interesting day, head back to The Idle Rocks to enjoy a leisurely evening before departing the next morning with a box of specially blended Tregothnan tea.

Stay from £385 per night based on two nights with two adults sharing a Harbour room.
