The first Laura Ashley The Tea Room in Cornwall and the sixth in the Laura Ashley collection is set to open its doors this month at The Cornwall Hotel.

The all new Laura Ashley The Tea Room will be officially opening to the public on Saturday, 25th May, offering an exquisite afternoon tea experience in an elegant coastal inspired surrounding.

Guests will be able to indulge in an extensive range of sweet and savoury treats including hand-crafted patisseries, perfectly baked scones and a variety of Tregothnan Teas.

The elegant tea room will be the sixth in the Laura Ashley collection and the first to open in the costal country, attracting guests from near and far to celebrate a host of occasions and experience what the tea room has to offer. The tea room will be located in the hotel’s main building, at the heart of the estate, and will be tastefully decorated in signature Laura Ashley style, bringing together the quintessence of England with elegant country-living.

Rebecca Coonan, General Manager at The Cornwall said: “We’re really excited for our new tea room to be opening later this month! We have been hard at work to make sure that we are ready for the grand opening and we are looking forward to unveiling the beautiful tea room to our guests.”

Kay Cullen, Laura Ashley Designer, said: “Our inspiration behind The Cornwall design was inspired by the hotel’s location close to the coast, yet nestled in a beautiful tropical garden setting (The Lost Gardens of Heligan being right on the doorstep). We named the concept ‘Into the Blue’ to give the tea room a distinct identity with blue being the stand out colour mixed with contrasting pops of orange and green to reflect the wonderful colours in the surrounding trees as they change season.

Kay continues: “The use of coastal prints, geometric shapes, brightly coloured art work with touches of brass and gold in the accessories add a fresh take to the country manor aesthetic.”
