Discover the birthplace of the Devon Cream Tea
Abouthe Bedford Hotel - where the Devon Cream Tea was invented!
The Bedford Hotel in Tavistock originally formed part of Tavistock's Benedictine Abbey. The Abbey was established in the 10th Century, but was badly damaged by Vikings in 997AD. Restoration of the Abbey was undertaken by local workers and monks, who were rewarded with bread, clotted cream and strawberry preserves. And so the Devon Cream Tea was born.
