Project Description

Afternoon Picnic at the Garden Kitchen

Sip tea from china cups and enjoy tiny sandwiches without crusts at one of these lovely afternoon tea destinations.

Eat like royalty in the afternoon so you have plenty of time to spend at your pod in the evening, toasting marshmallows over a fire pit. Sounds like a plan!

We love the quirky little Afternoon Picnics from the Garden Kitchen, the gorgeous surroundings of the Huntsman’s Lodge and the cosy, special feel of The Traddock. You’re spoilt for choice around here!
