When I found out it was Afternoon Tea Week this week I almost wet myself. No joke I love afternoon tea! The thought of sitting in a cute setting surrounded by scones, cakes and tea makes me giddy!
So in celebration, here are my top 5 places for afternoon tea in Hertfordshire:
After a day exploring the farm animals and woodland play area, a good scone is much needed. And I am telling you these are the best scones I have ever tasted. Complete with fresh jam and cream from the farm! I can taste it as I type.
My sister took me here for my birthday and it was my first experience of afternoon tea. I have been hooked ever since! It is such a dainty, florally setting which is how I imagine my kitchen would look if it wasn’t for James! The food is nothing too posh but delicious all the same. The staff are super lovely too!
This is where I want to get married. The grounds are just stunning and their afternoon tea will be on my wedding menu for sure!
I discovered this place completely by accident. It is situated in Shenley Park which is the cutest little place. There is a walled garden, fairy door trail and play area. Although I have not actually tried their scones I can tell you their breakfast is nice! Their scones are on my list.
Now this is another I have not actually tried but I plan to. The photos I have seen look delicious and I think I’m getting quite good at determining a good looking scone!
Are you an avid scone eater like me? Now I need to know.. cream or jam first? I personally cut the scone in half, slap some cream on and then smooth the jam on top!!
