Tea Time and Fairy Tales at the Betty Blythe vintage tea room

After reading Jenny's post from Frantically Jenny Frances about the Betty Blythe vintage tea room, I decided to pop down for brunch on my day off. It was just as lovely as Jenny had suggested and is pretty close to my home.

The tea room is very quaint and cosy. I had a nice pot of tea, ham and cheese toastie, and scones with cream and jam. Everything was delicious, and the atmosphere was relaxed. 

I had a nice seat in the window, perfect for people watching!

Old jazz music played softly in the background, and I spent the afternoon drinking tea and reading a book of fairy tales. 

Before heading home I had to try a sugar mouse, I mean small pink and white edible mice hiding in a glass jar, who could resist?

I wore a printed cotton skirt I made the day before and styled it casually with a tee shirt, cardigan and gold wreath brooch. 

It is important to slow down sometimes and take time for yourself, when you have nothing at all to do, no chores to get done.

What do you like to do for yourself on your day off?




  1. I'm so glad you liked it at Betty Blythe's, I unfortunately had hardly any time to experience it properly. Next time I shall definitely sample some of the lunch menu & more tea! XxxX

  2. I'm a bit envious of you, dear... you've been to most magnificent places (and we don't have them over here) To tell you the truth: I am yet to find a SINGLE tea-room in the 50 kilometer radius... haven't succeeded so far..
    Have a great Sunday evening!


  3. The sugar mice are too cute for words - in fact, this whole lovely tea room is. What a charming, awesome place to have close enough by to where you live to visit. Thank you for taking us along with you. I really enjoyed it!
