Step back in time and enjoy wandering through 12 different gardens, talk with Old Ned and Aunt Martha about their lives over 120 years ago. Afterwards enjoy afternoon tea, Victorian style, with loose tea, proper serviettes all lit by oil lamps. On the menu you will find scones, clotted cream alongside a Ploughman's Lunch, Her Ladyship's & the Brigadier's High Teas. In all an experience of times gone by.

We had booked an Aristocratic Afternoon Tea for a family celebration whilst on holiday nearby. Driving up we were a little bit worried as it seems a strange setting in the middle of nowhere with just a few houses around, but we needn't have been. The tearoom is beautifully Victorian with willow china, linen tablecloths and candles on all the... More

We held our hand-fasting (Pagan Wedding) at Aunt Martha's. It was an amazing experience - the staff helped plan the meal, prepare and cook everything - even our Wedding Cake. They waited on the guests and even provided us with umbrellas - as it was pouring down. Aunt Martha herself gave us an entertaining talk about Marriage. What a day... More

A great evening had by the 4 couples who attended this soiree on 6 November. Entertained for almost 4 hours with good food, good conversation and good story telling. All couples dressing up and set towards the end of the Victoria era. A great way to spend an evening
