Indulge in a freshly baked Welsh cake or tuck into a traditional bara brith at these top tea rooms in North Wales, writes Rebekka O’Grady

Ty Hyll, Capel Curig
Tyŷ Hyll is a fabulous café with an abundance of history. Translated in English as The Ugly House, some legends say it was built by robbers and thieves who would take advantage of travellers on the old A5 as they journeyed through Snowdonia. Or maybe it’s the big, crude boulders that give the house its name as the word ‘hyll’ in Welsh can mean rough or crude, as well as ugly. Despite its appearance, the charming Pot Mêl tearoom inside serves a cracking Welsh afternoon tea. We recommend the ‘Ugly House’ tea, where you can indulge in delights such as freshly griddled Welshcakes and Barabirth.
Afternoon tea ranges from £4pp to £11.80pp

St Tudno, Llandudno
Located on Llandudno’s promenade, St Tudno Hotel offers guests an award winning Welsh afternoon tea. Special afternoon tea lady, Doris Roberts, will serve you a treat of freshly-baked cakes and pastries, including a traditional Bara Brith and hot buttered Welshcake, alongside finger sandwiches. Why not upgrade to the deluxe version and receive a bowl of fresh strawberries and cream with a glass of house Champagne?
£14.95pp or £24.95pp for deluxe

Bodnant Welsh Food, Conwy
Housed in what once was the 18th century stable building of Furnace Farm, the Furnace Tearoom at Bodnant is the perfect location to enjoy delicious homemade food set against the spectacular backdrop of the Conwy Estuary. Every aspect of Bodnant’s afternoon tea is Welsh, from the Welsh brewed tea and locally ground coffee, to the freshly made sandwiches served on Bodnant bread with a variety of traditional Welsh fillings. Don’t miss their Welsh Cakes made using the dairy’s homemade buttermilk and warm-baked scones served with Bodnant’s handmade salted butter, clotted cream and Pant Glas jam.
Afternoon tea ranges from £4.50pp to £9.50pp

Their afternoon tea features a selection of freshly made sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, and of course, a variety of cakes including Welsh favourite, Barabrith. After you’ve filled your boots, you can walk off your treats around the beautiful wooded river valley.

Their Signature afternoon tea includes, as well as sandwiches, freshly baked sultana Scones served with jam, lemon curd and clotted cream, traditional Welsh Barabrith and a the mouth-watering sounding passion fruit and raspberry cupcake whip.
