I wouldn’t normally review a Devonshire Tea that is only available to in-house guests at holiday accommodation; however, this one included in a 2-night stay at Treetops Country Guesthouse is way too good to be kept a secret. Bundanoon is nicely tucked away from the busier towns in the Southern Highlands such as Bowral and Mittagong, and is the gateway to Moreton National Park and at night, the Glow Worm Grotto shines spectacularly. The scones you can only have if you bed down under the same roof as the baker are finely balanced; just the right size so as not to spoil the appetite, fresh from the oven with an ever-so-slight dusting of icing sugar to give it a slight sweet kick. The rich strawberry jam is homemade, and you’ll only do better with the thickly whipped cream if it were clotted. Just thinking about it and I’m almost inclined to check in again for another stay!
Tea: A choice of loose-leaf and tea bags covering black, green and herbal varieties served in small pots
Price: Included in 2-night tariff.
Overall: Stay here if you want a great Devonshire Tea.
Location: 101 Railway Ave, Bundanoon NSW 2578 Ph: 02 4883 6371
