A Rural Retreat For Those Wanting To Relax In The Stunning Countryside Is Only A Short Journey Out Of The Liverpool City Region
The beautiful Lancashire tearoom and gallery, Eden, will be welcoming visitors back from Monday the 17th of May.
Located only 5 miles from Ormskirk and approximately 30 minutes from Liverpool City Centre, the tearoom makes a great break from city life being nestled in the quaint village of Newburgh.
The impressive building is 4000 Sq Ft and covers two floors. The building is home to a tearoom, art gallery, a retail space selling artisan merchandise from local creatives and a workshop area for guests to get creative.
Eden hosts classes by a collection of talented local creatives, offering both one-off and monthly workshops in a purpose-built workshop so that customers can relax and create their delightful makes.
'It’s for all ages really to get stuck in and have fun and get creative' - Paula Parsons, Founder of Eden Tearoom & Galleries.
The frequent in-house classes offered include clay hand building and watercolour sessions. With the workshops run by visiting local creatives including scarf weaving, a variety of creative floristy options and pot painting, as well as baby hand print offerings.
Eden want to cultivate an ethos of encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get involved in unlocking their creative side. Other planned classes include wheel throwing, embroidery and fairy door building.
The getaway also holds monthly artisan & farmers markets on the first Saturday of each month within their grounds which can be incorporated with a trip to enjoy both indoor and outdoor seating with a selection of food or afternoon tea. The markets welcome more than 50 local makers and offer street food and local produce too.
It is also worth noting that the stunning tearoom and galleries is only a short distance from the popular Parbold Hill Circular Walk, which upon visiting Eden, you could combine into your trip.
Eden Tearoom serves a variety of food and drink sourced from a range of local farmers and producers. Their menu entails a whole host of offerings including breakfast, brunch, lunch and small plates.
'We have built up a lovely customer base... it’s a really vibrant mix of people – some stopping off for some lunch and a workshop, others for their tea and to check out our exhibitions.' - Paula Parsons, Founder of Eden Tearoom & Galleries.
The countryside-based business works alongside a selection of local suppliers for meat, fish, dairy and vegetables. Working with local producers is key to Eden, combined similarly with offering opportunities for local creatives and artists to produce and sell artisan products.
Something also worth noting is the new addition to the menu from the 17th of May is afternoon tea; visitors will be able to order sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee. With the team at Eden baking their cakes, tarts and scones in-house.
The Gallery at Eden is currently hosting the exhibition ‘Perception: See What You Feel’ which features work from more than 30 local artists.
'as a destination we encourage people to really immerse themselves here and try out as much as possible.' - Paula Parsons, Founder of Eden Tearoom & Galleries.
The current exhibition explores how colours, patterns and textures can impact everyone's mood and is strongly linked to people's emotions, and how they have tried to cope during the pandemic for more than a year now.
After the ‘Perception: See What You Feel’ exhibition has ended, there will be a photography exhibition by Ste Ward that will run from the 30th of June to the 1st of August. Also on offer will be the Eden Photography Competition which is available for entry for younger visitors to the gallery.
Paula Parsons, the Founder of Eden Tearoom and Galleries, said: 'It’s really exciting as we count down the days to be able to open as we have always intended, both indoors and outside, to show our lovely site to the region.'
She added: 'We have built up a lovely customer base who travel from across the region to the Tearoom and Galleries, it’s a really vibrant mix of people – some stopping off for some lunch and a workshop, others for their tea and to check out our exhibitions.'
She said: 'We are lucky to be in such a wonderful part of the world here, it’s truly beautiful and also inspirational too, and as a destination we encourage people to really immerse themselves here and try out as much as possible. It’s for all ages really to get stuck in and have fun and get creative, which for me is the most important element of what we do.'
The Eden Tearooms is a great option for those wanting to escape the urban jungle of the Liverpool City Region and travel a little further afield only around 30 minutes away from the heart of the City into the tranquil Lancashire countryside.
