The Carnewas Tea Rooms must be one of the cafes with the best views in the Whole of Cornwall. The view from the cliff down onto the beach below Bedruthen Steps is just an incredible sight to behold
Accessible at low tide via a steep sets of steps if you are brave enough and have a head for the heights, the beach is unspoiled apart from the steady stream of tourists and dog walkers you can see in the distance far below
The Tea room and Tea Garden are both on the National Trust site who run the car park too. If you are a member then it is free to park so even if you only stop for a gander its worth it
CREAM TEA AT CARNEVAS TEA ROOM
The thing to get at the Tea Room is probably a Cornish Cream tea with the scones baked fresh each day on the premises and the clotted cream and jam sourced locally from Williams Dairy and from Hogs Bottom
It might not look all that fancy on our plate but it was clearly all freshly made and freshly scooped from a pot. No sad individual sachets here to be seen!
SPECIALS BOARD AT CARNEVAS TEA ROOMS
The specials board at the Tea Room has what you may well have expected here in Cornwall by the coast, offering Local Steak Cornish pasties and Crab Sandwiches
CRAB SANDWICH AT CARNEWAS
I have to have at least one crab sandwich when I am on holiday and so was happy to find one on the specials board today at the tea room
Nice soft white bread filled with fresh crab meat, perfect and uncomplicated. I liked that there was a simple salad and a small pot of crisps on the side
VIEWS FROM THE COAST PATH
There are many great views from the coast path that runs behind the tea room looking down over the cliff to the beach.
Just another reason to stop here for a bite to eat and a cup of tea
As well as the food, the tea, the cakes, and the views, you can also spot a lot of wildlife and the chalkboard at the centre lists out what had been spotted recently, a lot more that I had thought!
The Carnewas Tea Room is located at Bedruthen Steps, St Erval, PL27 7UW on the B3276.
It is a National Trust Car Park so free to park if you are a member
