The Lake District’s Hazelmere Cafe & Bakery has been named the best place in Britain to get a cup of tea by the UK Tea Council. Judges visited 100 venues and rated them on 17 criteria from decor to crockery. The cafe uses only loose-leaf tea and bakes it’s own food using ingredients sourced locally. Awards for excellence were given to 38 other tea rooms in the Top Afternoon Tea Awards 2006, including six Bettys of Harrogate teashops in Yorkshire
