Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield House

A couple of weekends ago, Dave’s mum was up and we took her for Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield House as a birthday present. Prestonfield House is actually really near where we stay, but we’d never been! It was a great day for walking around the grounds and trying to sneak photos of the peacocks! The interiors are all dark read, which I wasn’t really sure I would like from photos I’d seen (and actually doesn’t come through amazingly well in my photos either), but it was beautiful in real life! So rich and every surface was decorated differently!

The food was delicious as was the tea – I think we’ve been neglecting tea for coffee too much, spending a fortune on coffee beans but drinking Asda own brand tea, I think we need to redress the balance! As always, it didn’t seem like a lot of food, but I was SO FULL at the end of it, and that was with us sharing three portions between the five of us! I had also been pretty worried we were making a mistake taking our kidlets to a posh restaurant, but amazingly they were really well behaved and there was also lots of pother people with kids, so didn’t feel out of place at all.

Cakes! My fave was the coconut, lime and passionfruit one.

We had some homework from nursery to collect autumny things for the baby room sensory bit, so we collected up a mountain of conkers.

The ladies toilets were called the powder room, it had a chaise longue and was much more pink than this picture suggests!

    Lovely photographs of the peacock. I recently had afternoon tea at Tigerlily and loved it-ate my weight in cake! These ones look delicious!

    This all looks lovely! You look fab in that cute short dress. I’m all for giving weens a chance to learn how to behave in public. They do usually rise to the occasion!
