There are few things as undeniably civilised and charming as a traditional English tea. Morley House is one of the oldest homes in Bathurst, having been built in 1828 by the British Settlers that colonised many parts of the country and, specifically, this part of the Eastern Cape Province. And it is here that visitors can enjoy a lovely hot pot of tea.

When visiting Bathurst, or simply for those passing through, Morley House provides an inviting English tea garden in which to relax and refresh one’s self in an air of sophistication and grace. Sip your freshly-brewed tea while nibbling on a sandwich, pie, or light lunch. Of course, tea is best enjoyed with a sweet treat, and the range of cakes and desserts are sure to tempt even the most disciplined of diners. These are all home-made, fresh and delicious.

There is a sun-kissed deck that overlooks the manicured gardens and the original home. This makes for a near-perfect spot in which to savour the flavours and soak up the fresh air of the countryside. On cooler winter days, there is an indoor area, complete with an inviting log fireplace to set the scene for the cosiest cuppa imaginable. Free WiFi, as well as newspapers and magazines, ensure that patrons will want for nothing as they escape the hustle and bustle of modern city living.

Bathurst is a historical little town that is surrounded by better known tourist towns and villages like Grahamstown, Port Alfred and Kenton-on-Sea. It is home to the Big Pineapple, which is a three-storey museum and gift shop that is dedicated to the thriving pineapple farms and associated industries of Bathurst. Other local museums include Bradshaw’s Mill and the Bathurst Agricultural Museum. Every Sunday, the town comes alive at the farmers’ market, which is open from 09h00 to 12h30.
