The Rustic Tea Garden

Northcott Mouth, Bude, Cornwall

A bit of the beach at Northcott Mouth

Northcott Mouth from the clifftop

The beach at Northcott Mouth is sandy and flat and stunning. It’s good for surfing as the waves are powerful, but we swam and jumped and generally messed around in the sea and it was energising and liberating. After C demonstrated the art of the cartwheel and we listened to the mussels singing in the sunshine we collected V and headed back up to the road to The Rustic Tea Garden.

Margaret runs the small green caravan and assures me she always makes tea in a pot. The pasties come from the local bakery and if you want a place to camp by the sea then Margaret is the woman in the know. The Rustic Tea Garden is just what’s needed after a sea swim and was one of the friendliest places I’ve ever set down my mug.

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
