Remembering A Tea With A View

When we visit England, walking on the Malvern Hills in Worcester is a "must" for hubby GJ. 
These photos are from our 2008 trip, AJ's third trip to England where he celebrated his 9th birthday.

Description of The Kettle Sings from my well-worn copy of
Margaret Thornby's Guide to Tea Rooms of Britain
"Situated on the upper western slopes of the Malvern Hills, overlooking rural Herefordshire and beyond, The Kettle Sings has fantastic views from its conservatory. Waitress service brings a home made scone with butter, jam and cream, or there is a variety of other delicacies, including delicious home made ice cream and toasted teacakes.  Cakes and jams are home made, and still or sparkling Malvern water is available as well as Assam, Darjeeling or Earl Grey Teas."

On this trip, we enjoyed lunch and cream tea. 
We discovered The Kettle Sings in 1995, and have returned several times.

We had a trip to England a few years ago and loved it! I would love to go back someday-love their tea rooms and that one has a wonderful view.

Oh, this is a beautiful place, Linda. Who would want to leave this bucolic setting?

Thank you for sharing this sweet memory of your lovely trip.

What a delightful name for a tea room -- and that view makes me sing, too!

Mom & I had tea in Ireland with a lovely view out a picture window. It was the first time I'd ever had a scone. Lovely experience!
