Afternoon Tea At Stapleford Park

What better way to while away a lazy day than with a glass of champagne and an endless supply of cakes?

Thats right, an endless supply of cakes and sandwiches are on offer with the afternoon tea at Stapleford Park Country House Hotel!

After hearing this we had to go and try it out, and we weren’t dissapointed.

But before we get to the cakes, lets take a stroll around the grounds…..

Even on a dull day the grounds are stunning.

Taking a turn around the estate is the perfect way to build up an appetite for whats to come!

For the clever ones amongst you, a larger than life game of chess could be in order. Brilliant, your mind gets a work out as well as your body.

After all, you did work up that appetite strolling in the blustery weather!

But save room for the star of the show (in my opinion)…..

The scones.

Smothered in lashings of fruit compote and clotted cream, they are fit for a king & queen!

Then top it all off with a flurry of desserts. Each one as decadent as the other.

At this point anyone who asks for top ups I salute you!

Then try your hand at a spot of tea leaf reading whilst you chat away in your beautiful surroundings.

Make sure to leave just in time to capture the house as the sun sets.

It really is a stunning end to a stunning day. I recommend a trip.

If you’re quick they have an offer on in January for a free glass of champagne with the afternoon tea.

Who could say no to a free glass of champagne?!
