  • Seasonal Celebrations

Valentine’s Day is the ideal opportunity to show love, even if it’s not necessarily romantic in nature. Family, friends and even you as an individual could all benefit from some love, allowing those relationships to strengthen.

Father-Daughter Afternoon Tea

The apple of every father’s eye is his little girl, no matter how old she is, so why not spend time spoiling her with a delicious Afternoon Tea?

Decadent cakes, delicious sandwiches and handmade scones, along with Newby Teas and Café Du Monde, offer the perfect opportunity for Fathers to spend time with his princess. If they’re old enough, daughters can appreciate an extra dash of elegance with Laurent-Perrier Champagne available. 

Beautiful views of our unique parkland make an ideal backdrop to your time together.
