Owl's Hill Tearoom, Terling

12/01/2016 About 1 minute
Owl's Hill Tearoom is a family-run business which has recently opened in the beautiful Essex village of Terling. Run by local girl Sarah Meares, who grew up in the village and has recently returned from living in London, the tea room has quickly become a popular fixture for cyclists, runners and locals.

It's important for Sarah that the food served at Owl's Hill Tearoom is as local as possible - she serves home-made cakes and tarts, and while the speciality coffee starts its life in Brazil and Ethiopia, it is roasted in Saffron Waldon.


Sarah and her mum, Robin, bake the cakes themselves whilst the delicious bread, pastries and scones are baked and delivered daily by Danbury Fine Foods. Sarah can also order bread for customers - there's nothing like a freshly baked loaf in the morning. Just let her know the day before.

The Tearoom is a cosy and inviting space, with a small outside seating area at the front of the building. It's perfect if you fancy a quiet coffee reading the paper on your own or have longer to spend time catching up with friends over tasty lunch and cake. The tearoom has a fascinating collection of local photographs on the walls which customers really enjoy browsing - they provide a really interesting glimpse into Terling history.

Terling is very popular with walkers - it sits on the Essex Way, but there are also lots of lovely shorter walks, including along the River Ter and through the beautiful local woods. Cyclists can refuel with cake and coffee, and several local cycling clubs have already made the Tea Room a regular weekend stop-off.

Sarah and the rest of the team at Owl's Hill Tearoom look forward to welcoming you to their friendly and inviting space.
