Fancy a Devonshire tea with a crafty edge - The Patchwork Tea House may be just the place for you. Situated in cosy Warburton, The Patchwork Tea House is a family run business which offers craft classes, a place for sewers/patchwork quilters and more to come together and create over a warming cup of tea and some delicious cakes.

Find all manner of interesting craft tools, toys and fabrics, take a class or just have some old fashioned time out with great service.

From a selection of decadent cakes and slices, home style (read: enormous) biscuits through to a range of home cooked meals, warming soups and ten different blended teas with names as exotic as the tea itself (loose leaf in a pot of course).
As a tea fan myself, they had me the first time I was offered a selection of tiny pots containing teas to smell and choose the one that took my fancy. All situated near the bubbling river with glass bay windows - beautifully decorated with patchwork quilts and crafts of course.
We enjoyed the home style pasties, spinach and ricotta filo parcels, caramel slice and the largest sandwich you could imagine, washed down with terrific teas and coffees and finished with warm fluffy scones with lashings of home style jam and cream.

Great prices, friendly service, terrific food. Mums and Grandmas come with children to create something special over a coffee or baby cino (served with hot chocolate and their own tiny mug of milk). Families come for the walks in Warburton, great food and reasonable prices. Couples love to sit in the bay window gazing at the mountains

Whether you come to have some time out and create, just love food and teas or wish to take a class. The Patchwork Tea House offers something to enjoy for all.

On public holidays and weekends, we suggest you book ahead.

Just up the road is the Old Tea House too, where you could pop in if you felt like a hot chocolate later on, after a lovely river/mountain walk

Marilyn is an excellent host and loves what she does, her staff are wonderful and very friendly.
I absolutely love their light lunches, crafts and displays of beautiful items. Outside is also the way to go if you happen to bring a furry friend along or kids who have autism and can't sit still.
Marilyn lives in Warburton and knows the history and is always willing to let you know of what is new in town.
Up the road and up the hill on your right you may meet the eccentric gentleman who has built a tree house he lives in, absolutley amazing, google it and be stunned by what this well travelled man has accomplished with recycling and no-one could ever replicate what he has created and I am absolutley in awe of his thought processes. If you look long enough he may even invite you in.
