Only in Herefordshire will you find fantastically names hamlets like Trumpet and what surprises await you when you do. Midway between Hereford City and Ledbury, tucked neatly on the main Trumpet crossroads and traffic lights, is Trumpet Corner Tearoom, Galleries and Garden.
Pull in straight from the road to the ample car park, and venture through the iron gates to discover a little slice of wonderland. With an excellent reputation for beautifully moist and flavourful cakes, the tearoom is a real destination in a wonderfully private setting overlooking a pretty secret garden, in which you can sit on a warm day to enjoy the tweet of the birds and the smell of the rose arch.
The aromas of freshly baked scones (for their award-winning cream teas), drizzle cakes, iced confections, and general slices of delicious naughtiness mingle with savoury smells of lovely hot and cold light lunches, all freshly prepared in the tearoom kitchens.
Potter into the Gallery spaces, which showcases the work of many local artists from iron, wood and metalwork to jewellery and textiles, glass design, ceramics, silversmithing, to prints, paintings, illustrations, cards and photography. Inspiration and temptation is everywhere for gifts, for treats and all for sale.
Dotted with sculptures and outdoor accessories made by these very artisans, the private walled garden is a peaceful place for conversation and contemplation, between fingerlicking indulgences of course.
The rolling garden gallery exhibitions change every 6-8 weeks with the gallery changing at the same time. The co-operative of up to 20 artists covers such a wide range work and the buildings are home to resident sculptors Ed Elliott (wood) and Caroline Green (artist and children’s author).
There is also large variety of workshops to join in with; a full list of which, along with other events, can be found on the website.
