The Miller's Wife's Tea Room

Four times winner of Devon Life's Best Tearoom award, our tearoom is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Devonshire cream tea.

All items in our tearoom are baked by the miller's wife on the premises. The selection changes each day, but features predominantly a tempting selection of mill-made cakes, many of which are baked with stoneground flour from our water mill.

Our cosy tearoom seats 25, and we have room for 45 in our picturesque tea garden with views of the water wheel. There's space for children to play and take part in our games and challenges, giving you time to sit back and enjoy your cream tea.

Cream Teas

"Best cream tea in Devon!"

We have a range of cream teas available; as well as fruit or plain scones, we also offer Devonshire splits for a truly traditional cream tea experience.

If you'd like something a bit different, try our thunder and lightning (scones with clotted cream and golden syrup) or our savoury cream tea (cheese scones served with cream cheese and our prize-winning caramelised onion marmalade)!


Our selection of cakes changes daily. Follow us on Facebook for the day's treats!

If you're joining us for lunch, we offer locally produced pasties made with our own flour, homemade sandwiches, soup, and savoury cream teas.

Afternoon Tea

If you're planning something special, an afternoon tea at Hele Corn Mill & Tea Room is the perfect treat.

From afternoon tea for two, to high tea for a group, or scones and sandwiches for your party, we've got something for all occasions.
