It's like having afternoon tea in your grandma's house

The front of the house

The Cottage Tea Rooms are located at 8560 West Swan Rd in Henley Brook WA 6055. They are open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm.

The Cottage Tea Rooms have been open since 2010. The business is owned by Sarah Lock. The cottage dates back to the 1950s and was originally a farm house for the winery that surrounds the place.

Sip some tea with some friends in this room

Someone has put a lot of love into this delightful little café. The front of the house is surrounded by a green lawn and a beautiful picturesque garden. The outdoor area has a large white gazebo, tables and chairs and a small children's playset. Since it was raining the day we visited we decided to eat inside.

The outside area

You can really tell that the Cottage Tea Rooms used to be a house that someone used to live in. It is small and packed with too many things. What I found interesting was how the place was laid out.

Some tea cups on display

You can explore the entire house. Each room has a table and chairs and a fantastic ambience. The windows have white curtains and the walls are covered in clocks and framed pictures.

Some gorgeous teddy bears waiting to be picked up and taken home

In each of the rooms I found bookcases, shelves and tables weighed down with things like tea cups, saucers, butter dishes, teddy bears, vases, china statues and more. And you can purchase them if you want. I had a lot of fun exploring each of the rooms and seeing what they had to offer. I liked the room up the back that had an entire bookcase full of teddy bears.

I liked how each room had its own character

The Cottage Tea Room serves sandwiches, sweet scones, quiches, savoury scones, cakes, waffles and tea and coffee. They also sell handmade jams and relishes for $8 dollars and bags of tea. You can get these at the front counter.

Why not buy some tea to take home?

The Cottage Tea Room is a fantastic place to go for morning or afternoon tea. They serve a huge selection of teas. If you are a fan of classic black tea they serve English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Scottish Breakfast.

Or maybe a jar of jam?

They also offer a wide selection of flavoured black teas. Apricot and Peach, China Rose, Turkish Delight, Mint Slice and Strawberries and Cream are just some of the ones they offer.

A slice of chocolate cake

When we went to the Cottage Tea Room we had a slice of chocolate cake and a slice of carrot cake and two hot chocolates. It was a perfectly pleasant afternoon tea in a charming old house filled with a lot of character. I would happily visit again.

A tea room with teddy bears? Sound like my kind of place. I love the teddy on the right.
