Elstow Tea Gardens

Strictly by appointment only.    Bookings; 01234 926677 

Elstow Tea Garden; the Tea 'room' with a difference -  it's all outside!

This delightful Tea 'room' is set in the garden of a typical English country cottage, located in the ancient village of Elstow, Bedfordshire, England.

"An outdoor tearoom - in England?" we hear you cry. Don't worry, our garden is very sheltered and there are gazebos, marquees and a summerhouse.

 Elstow Tea Garden provides  a relaxing, welcoming, space where you can experience the atmosphere of this lovely, historic English village - whilst enjoying good food or, if you wish, just a cup of tea.

Elstow Tea Garden is close to the historic 11th century Elstow Abbey - the entrance is immediately   opposite the ruins of the former cloisters and Hillersden Mansion (see "How to find us" page).

Just a minute's walk away is tranquil Elstow Village Green, with its beautiful medieval market house - Moot Hall.

Take a look at the photos on our "Elstow Village" webpage to see what a beautiful and historic village this is.

2020   opening days & Times;
Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday - 10am to 4pm,
From; Friday 10th July to Sunday 30th September.


Directions to Elstow Tea Gardens 

From Elstow High Street, turn into Church End. Drive to the far end of the village green and then bear left onto the Abbey Church's car park.  In the stone wall, you will see a set of oak gates leading into the churchyard. Walk through that gateway and follow the pathway, past the belltower and, just past the western doors of the Abbey, you will find Elstow Tea Garden on the right, opposite the ruins of Hillersden's Mansion.

Elstow Tea Garden is located in the rear garden of 209 Church End, Elstow, Bedford MK42 9XT
