I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Trumpet Corner Tea Room, gallery and art workshop last week. This hive of activity is located at Trumpet crossroads only 11 miles from Hereford and four miles from the market town of Ledbury. The Tea Room offers freshly made tea and coffee and local cakes and you can browse around the art galleries and purchase high quality, locally produced artworks. There is also a collection of workshops where a number of resident artists create their masterpieces.
I was offered a traditional cream tea with a beautiful pot of fresh tea. The tea room offers a breakfast menu, light lunches and afternoon tea. I was given a tour around the garden and all the craft workshops and was able to watch the embroidery class that was underway.
There are events and courses running throughout the year and coming up is the Craf-Tea Garden Fair on 29th July. For a suggested £4 donation you can watch craft demonstrations and workshops, enjoy a homemade scone with jam and cream, Trumpet ‘House Blend’ tea and a raffle entry.
