Periwinkle Cottage is a picture postcard cottage situated on Selworthy Green. Set on a hillside on the edge of the National Trust’s Holnicote Estate, the views from Selworthy offer a breathtaking panorama of the adjacent villages, fields and Exmoor towards Dunkery Beacon.
Periwinkle Cottage sits at the heart of the green and has its origins in the 17th Century. Having been Tea Rooms & Garden for many years it now has a new lease of life with its new owners. Now in their second year having been Finalists in the Somerset Food & Drink Awards – Best Tea Room category in their first year.
The Tea Rooms have been completely refurbished and redecorated. All the elements of a quintessential Tea Room still exist, but with a fresh and contemporary feel.
The owners live in the pretty cottage and bake every day to provide the wide range of cakes available seven days a week, in addition to the light lunches and Cream Teas.
An ideal stopping point for walkers, cyclists and riders. Muddy boots and muddy dogs always welcome in the Tea Rooms and Garden.
Who could leave Selworthy Green without a traditional Cream Tea? The only question is Cream on Jam, or Jam on Cream?
