Afternoon Tea At Hanbury Manor

I recently treated my wonderful MIL to Afternoon Tea at Hanbury Manor for an afternoon of relaxation and girly chit chat.

Am I the BEST daughter-in-law ever or what??

The grounds at Hanbury Manor are breath-taking, This stately 17th century Jacobean style country house, set in 200 acres of spectacular Hertfordshire countryside, is the perfect location for a girly lunch or family celebration.


The food was amazing. The cucumber sandwiches were served on a bread infused basil (which I could have eaten 100 times over), and the scones were served warm with the most deliciously sweet jam. I was in ‘lady that lunches’ heaven.

The staff were attentive, yet not over the top. We both felt very comfortable, relaxed and throughly enjoyed our afternoon. We spent most of the time plotting reasons to return.


Post indulgence we couldn’t resist a little sneaky peek around the hotel and spa, it certainly lived up to exceptions.

I think I may have to return sooner rather than later to try out the treatment rooms. For, like, blogging purposes of course.

The things I do for my readers! *cough*

    I’m a secret ‘lady who lunches’ and youve inspired me to invite my MIL out for lunch.

    We get on well but she’s much older than my mum so it’s a very different relationship. (She’s 75)

    Oooooh, lovely. We went to Hanbury Manor for the hubby to have a golf lesson. It’s beautiful isn’t it? And the afternoon tea looks lovely, I am a BIG fan of afternoon tea. All the dainty food and pretty crockery!!!
    And if you want someone to come and hold your hand to check out the treatments, I’m sure I could be available. ;) X
