Where to Eat of the Week: The Thirstea Co
17 July 2017
This week we urge to go off on a wild Roseland ramble in search of secret beaches, hidden creeks and Thirstea Co- the adorable and unique travelling tea room!
Thirstea Co. transformed their vintage Citroen HY Van, who goes by the name of Earl into a travelling tea room in 2014.
Specialising in delicious Cornish produce from warm pasties, freshly filled rolls, cream teas, cakes, ice creams, and a selection of loose leaf teas, Earl offers the perfect mid morning snack, tasty lunch for a picnic, or afternoon tea!
Situated in a beautiful location at the National Trust's Porth Farm on the Rosleand, on the circular walk around St Anthony's Head, and also just a few yards up from the stunning Towan Beach, is what makes a visit to Earl the perfect accompaniment to a coastal walk or beach picnic.
The site offers plenty of parking, onsite toilets, and is both dog and family friendly. Earl is open daily come rain or shine and throughout the whole of the school summer holidays, so a great choice for a family day out at the beach.
Why not leave the car behind for the day, and take a trip over to the Roseland on the Place Ferry; linking the South West Coast Path. This is the perfect choice for a day of exploring the Roseland Peninsula on foot, and a great opportunity to grab a Cornish pasty and a cup of loose leaf tea from Earl at lunchtime.
Top tip: Head out early and enjoy a Thirstea Co. breakfast on the weekends at 10 - 11am! With bacon rolls, freshly baked croissants and homemade granola with Greek yoghurt!
