Trelowarren Afternoon Tea

Sadly the afternoon teas will not be running in 2016.

Trelowarren Christian Resource Centre and Chapel occupies part of the Mansion House at Trelowarren a grade 1 listed building of significant architectural heritage. Once a month on the first Saturday from 2-6pm the house is open for visitors to enjoy afternoon tea.

Taking tea either in the library or the drawing roomwhere you can imagine the conversation’s that took place between Clara Vyvyan herself a successful author andDaphne -du- Maurier a frequent visitor to the house. Enjoy the grand piano being professionally played in the background and drink in the tranquil ambience. Keep warm by the roaring log fires in the winter whilst appreciating the  numerous architectural styles spanning several centuries.   The Strawberry Hill Gothic in the Chapel, the regency panelling in the drawing room, the neo classical entrance hall and the Victorian library. Once tea has finished you can wander through into the morning room art gallery and view paintings by local artists in addition to the ones already hung in the drawing room, all of which are for sale. Some months there will also be an artist in residence.

The cost of afternoon tea is £12.50 per person.
