The beautifully grand 17th century National Trust property of *Hartwell House* in Buckinghamshire hosts a sophisticated afternoon tea.
There is a stunning drive upto the property featuring lush green grounds, imposing trees and a church.
The morning room is filled with ornate antiques and other decorative pieces, exquisite upholstery and a comforting log fire.
The elaborate rococo ceilings feature sparkling crystal chandeliers.
Waiters are dressed in traditional tails and offer classic British service. There are a selection of tempting teas to choose from served in floral bone china.
Sandwiches are freshly made, accompanied by warmed scones served with clotted cream and homemade jam.
The grounds are well worth a stroll also with typical English greenery.
A full afternoon tea costs £25 or a cream tea is available from £12. This lovely relaxed country setting is well worth a visit for a spot of afternoon tea; in this grand historical venue, you will feel like a Lord or Lady!
They also have stunning accommodation and an amazing spa, so would be perfect for a country weekend break. For more information, please see *Hartwell House and Spa*
