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

I enjoyed the Victorian experience - I was the table mother, and I loved the little books of etiquette on the tables.... 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
