afternoon tea

My daughter bought me an ‘afternoon tea’ voucher as part of my Christmas present so today my husband and I went to enjoy our treat at the Brook Whipper In Hotel in Oakham, Rutland, http://www.brook-hotels.co.uk

Oakham is a small market town with a host of things to do and famous for its private school. It has a picturesque castle and museum and a busy Friday market. It holds a British Bird Watching Fair from 19th August – 21st August which they call ‘the Glastonbury of the bird watching world, drawing 20,000 visitors a year’.

It is only a few miles from the well known Rutland Water which is set in 4200 acres of open countryside. Created in the 1970’s to meet an ever increasing demand for water, is now widely regarded as a leading centre for water and land based leisure activities.

The 3 Star Brook Whipper-In Hotel is situated in the old market square of Oakham situated in Rutland, Britain’s smallest county.

The charming Brook Whipper-In Hotel in Oakham retains many original features such as real log fires, deep armchairs and original oak beams which create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The afternoon tea was delicious which as you can see from my photo was bursting with gorgeous sandwiches, scones and cakes. On a nice day (it was raining today) it could be enjoyed in there beautiful courtyard where we saw the biggest wall flower baskets we have ever seen.
