Nostalgic memories of Cleeve Hill's local history

Share your own memories of Cleeve Hill and read what others have said

For well over 10 years now, we've been inviting visitors to our web site to add their own memories to share their experiences of life as it was when the photographs in our archive were taken. From brief one-liners explaining a little bit more about the image depicted, to great, in-depth accounts of a childhood when things were rather different than today (and everything inbetween!). We've had many contributors recognising themselves or loved ones in our photographs. Why not add your memory today and become part of our Memories Community to help others in the future delve back into their past.

Members of my family were owners of the tea rooms at Cleeve Hill and had connections with the golf club there too. We may have some family connections. I have been to visit the area for family history research but could not find the tea rooms / house. I think it was opposite the Cleeve Hill Hotel. Do you have any more info about the tea rooms that might help?

I've been doing a history project and have recently disovered that some of my family once owned a place called Cosy Corner Tea Lawns. If anyone knows anything else about this place could they please share it with me. Thank you.
