Norton House Olde English Teahouse and Gift Shoppe The High Street, Henfield, West Sussex, BN5 9DB Tel No 01273 492064

Henfield is situated on a sandy ridge, with abundant springs, overlooking the River Adur. The name Henfield is thought to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon 'Ham-felde', which means a dwelling place on a high open land.

Norton House is approached through a beautiful cottage garden which in the summer is filled with flowers. In the past the garden has won Henfield in Bloom Garden Awards.

The listed building has beamed ceilings, oak tables, and lots of bona china and copper kettles around the room. It's a pretty tea room and an excellent place to visit.

There is a range of set teas to choose from including the usual traditional afternoon tea. All cakes are home-made and they have a selection of teas.
