Based on the Raby Estate The Botanical Tea House expertly blend a range of loose leaf teas for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.                                                                          The inspiration for the blends comes from their beautiful surroundings and the changing of the seasons.                                                                                         From the classic breakfast tea and earl grey to your more creative Ayurvedic blends and fruit infusions,                                                                      The Botanical Tea House will bring you tea that you will never get bored of drinking.

Here at the Durham Dales Centre we welcome thousands of visitors each year. Take a look below at some of our lovely feedback.

Nice little gift shops and a great cafe have a nice all day breakfast and some great Sunday dinners all at a good price!


Plenty of parking, nice shops and café very good food. We used the centre as a base for a walk around the quarry then back for food.


The staff are always pleasant and helpful (even when run off their feet). The menu has a good selection and the food is homemade, would recommend the mince pie with all the trimmings.
