The Healey Dell Heritage Centre and Tea Rooms is an Edwardian-themed charm on the banks of the River Spodden, surrounded by a stunning and scenic natural setting. In our two-vintage chandelier-lit tea rooms we serve traditional afternoon and cream teas amongst other freshly cooked home-style food. We have two outdoor sheltered areas which offer comfortable seating to circa 120 people with a bar, and a barbeque area. Muddy boots are welcome, and dog/animal friendly. Ample parking spaces for cyclists. We invite you to come and enjoy the ambience, food, natural setting and history.

Our Heritage Centre is a great starting point for local exploration and includes permanent heritage information on display and local information to take away with you.

This was a birthday treat to a friend and she really enjoyed the afternoon tea. The staff went out of their way to make it special, presenting a slice of chocolate cake with a candle whilst singing happy birthday which was a pleasant surprise to her. All in all it was lovely all round. Food lovely , couldn’t finish it all do all of us came away with boxed cakes. We will be booking again for our Christmas lunch .

Unfortunately we had to cut our afternoon tea experience short due to my granddaughter not feeling very well. However the staff were so understanding & helpful. They provided us with plenty of takeaway boxes & even a surprise birthday cake. We eventually did eat our afternoon tea at home and everything was really delicious. Thank you

Lovely afternoon tea, venue and staff. Quick service. My Satnav didn't follow the instructions given so we parked on the main road and walked down the single track road. Steep walk back! You can drive down the road and park outside.

The food was lovely but would have liked a choice of scones as we didn’t all like fruit ones and would have preferred a plain one. The staff were very helpful but had their coats on? Very enjoyable afternoon though and will definitely return.
Business Response:
Dear Elizabeth, thank you for your review. Sorry we didn't know you did not like fruit scones. It's a shame. We have a few different options of scones. May be next time. When you visited the tearooms we were in between two storms and our staff were serving outdoors and indoors and only a coat could offer some protection to the elements. Hopefully you will see them next without coats

Such a special place to me. The staff are so lovely, and you can tell it’s a place they care about. The afternoon tea was delicious. Especially the quiche. A place full of history and mystery. Lots of info here if your not familiar with the area. A little chilly so wrap up, but is a very old historical building. Thank you for a special experience
