Experience The Best Of The Afternoon Tea Tradition, With A Trip To One Of Gloucestershire's Finest Hotels Or Quaint Tearooms

Steeped in history and known around the world as a British pastime, when visiting the Cotswolds afternoon tea is a tradition that should always take priority. Experience an unforgettable afternoon tea from award winning venues across Gloucestershire.

Dating back to the 1830s, the tradition of afternoon tea was founded by the Duchess of Bedford. It is documented that she did not like the period of time between luncheon and dinner, so opted for a long and social event with friends. Almost 200 years later, this quintessential English tradition remains as loved as when it was first created.

Make mum feel extra special on Mother’s Day with some baked treats – there is everything from scones to slices of cupcakes to cookies. Some venues even offer hampers you can take on a picnic.

Why not visit Charingworth Manor and enjoy the freshest, homemade scones, sandwiches and cakes, all served with a piping hot pot of your favourite blend. Make it a celebration and add a glass of fizz! Served in their tranquil garden terrace or indoors.
