Not so much a tea room as a tea garden. Tucked away like a magical grotto past a trickling fountain and through vast trees and hedges, you arrive to a garden where you are served by staff in Victorian aprons, who bring the most delicious homemade scones (if you choose the cream tea - and really you should, you won't regret it). Also accompanying it is a nice big pot of cream and the same of jam, none of that tiddly little amount you get in the chain cafes. Quite right too! All you can hear is the birds and the wind rustling through the trees. It really is the most delightful, thoroughly English experience tucked away in the South Downs near Eastbourne. It's dog friendly too so your pooch can settle under the table for a rest after a lovely walk and refresh him/herself with a bowl of water while you enjoy the quintessential cream tea at this delightful spot.
A large car park accommodates plenty and there's a little gift shop and also a fabulous little plant nursery at the same spot to tempt you.
Find Litlington Tea Room near Cuckmere Haven, East Sussex taking the turning off the A259 signposted to Litlington and follow along. It's narrow so be careful.
