A few weeks ago we were desperate for a quality cream tea, but everywhere was closed for the season, including Hele Corn Mill. But my daughter contacted the owners nonetheless, they obliged as they had just returned from a weeks holiday. Not only did Cathy prepare scones from their own flour upon arrival, David gave us a tour of the mill whilst the delectable treats were being cooked. It may have had something to do with the fact that my daughter shared the same name as friends of theirs, but this did not deter the most hospitable reception. Whilst we were there on 'closed' weekend morning two further groups of hopefuls turned up, including an extra 11 abandoned at a bus stop.
It seems that Cathy and David love their work. This is a highly recommended cream tea.
