Journey to the Southwest of England (3)

Day 3:

Cream tea, Cheese and Wine

After looking at beautiful sights from Dartmouth Castle, we began to head to the next location. Along the route, and some mis-interpretation of sat. nav.'s directions, we came into Dartmouth town centre and discovered this place serving cream tea.


Having cream tea at this restaurant, run by a Michelin-starred chef, was truly a wonderful experience! The Angelique restaurant offers a stunning view over the estuary on its top floor, where we had our cream tea.

Latte and Chamomile Tea

Cream tea

Two scones were beautifully presented on a black plank of wood with clotted cream, butter and strawberry jam on the side.

A scone

The scone was beautifully made with loose and powdery texture.

Spread clotted cream, butter and strawberry jam

Served with clotted cream, butter and strawberry jam - DELICIOUS!

Scone ready

A very English cream tea enjoyed on the very English countryside. Nice!

And since we are visiting Cornwall/Devon, we could not miss the locally made pasty!

Cornish pasties

They offer lots of different fillings for the pasties, ranging from the very traditional steak to the very unconventional Belgium chocolate and banana filling!

Then, instead of heading to another castle, we decided to pay a visit to a nearby vineyard and winery - Sharpham Vineyard.

A vineyard located at a very scenic hilly area with the River Dart running around it!

Scenery from vineyard


Stunning scenery, sunny day, cool breeze, a very relaxing afternoon with a wine and cheese tasting session at the end.

Wine and Cheese

For a price of £4.95 each, we get to taste 4 different types of wine and 2 types of cheeses. A very nice experience!
