A beautiful, sunny blue sky with just enough snow to make it picture post card pretty, rather than impossible to visit, was the sight that greeted us on the latest visit to the special Peak view tea room. As if by some miracle, my favorite table next to the roaring coal fire became vacant just at the perfect time & the warmth of the flames were all the more welcome for the sugar-coating of snow outside.
Half & half was the perfect suggested solution to the dilemma that you’ll recall held me in it’s sway at my last visit to the excellent Peak view tea room – what to have from the large & tempting selection of cakes. So, from the large table of beautiful creations, with tea lights to illuminate my way, I decide on half a slice of the fabulous coffee cake & half slice of the delicious fruit cake. Always looking for new inspiration, there were some gorgeous cup cakes that were very tempting but I know already what I’m going to have on my next visit – syrup sponge pudding & custard!
After lashings of tea, we braved the Buxton to Macclesfield road once again, replete, thanks again to the wonderful, relaxing Peak view tea rooms.
