Welcome to the Little Cottage Tea Rooms, serving delicious cakes, cream teas, afternoon teas, using high quality ingredients from local suppliers.

Nestled in the beautiful village of Glynde within the South Downs National Park, this is a delightful setting for indulging in a traditional English afternoon tea, served with pretty vintage cups, saucers and teapots. Ideal after a walk in the country side, a visit to Glynde Place or before the opera at the famous Glyndebourne Opera House.

The Tea Room is fully licensed and available for private parties and functions whatever the occasion, so whether it’s an anniversary, birthday party, engagement, baby shower, hen party or any other special occasion you can be sure it will be an elegant occasion.

The Tea Room is normally open Thursday to Sunday from 12.30 am until 4.00 pm except during the week between Christmas and New Year and in January and February when we open weekends only.

During the Easter, May and summer school holidays we open every day except Wednesday.

Please note we only take reservations for Afternoon Tea’s, please visit our Afternoon Tea page for further information. Gift vouchers are available to purchase if you would like to treat someone special to one of our Afternoon Tea’s.

Dog’s are welcome in our garden and must be kept on a lead. During inclement weather we have a gazebo with blankets and hot water bottles available to keep the owner’s snug!

The Village Store will continue to offer light refreshments to take-away, providing a stop-point for walkers, cyclists, paragliders and passers by when the tea room is not open.

Free car parking is available in the village car park, next to the recreation ground just behind the tea rooms or you can leave your car at home as Glynde and Beddingham train station is just a few minutes walk away.

  1. Had afternoon tea with my daughter and parents yesterday and just wanted to say how delicious it was. Looking forward to coming back in the summer and sitting in your lovely garden. Thank you.

  2. Hello Debbie and David, We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our Afternoon tea today. The food was amazing and very tasty, your garden is beautiful and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed just chatting away in the sunshine with no feeling of being rushed. David you were a brilliant host serving us our goodies. We especially enjoyed the bubbly. Thank you for the information about the walk from Lewes we will look into this further. We will most definitely be back. Kindest regards Jan, Lynne, Sarah and Dawn.
