“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea,”...
We have been supplying vintage afternoon tea for visitors staying in gorgeous cotswold cottages for just three months now, and my goodness it’s been a busy time! We have provided tea for hens, 60th & 70th birthdays and also for people who just like to indulge themselves whilst visiting our stunning part of the world.
We think that although people like to get out and about whilst on holiday, they also choose a stunning cotswold cottage to be able to stay in and enjoy it, so we fit in perfectly! We bring all the china, cutlery & linen, and of course, the food from their chosen menu, set it all up then return at a convenient time to collect the ‘empties’ so there isn’t even any washing up to do! For special occasions we bring along Champagne, Prosecco or Pimms to add an extra touch of decadence.
With winter fading fast we are all looking forward to the longer days, warmer temperatures and of course sunshine, and what better way to enjoy all of these than on holiday in The Cotswolds? There are so many occasions to celebrate, but one that we think is, and should always be special, is Mothering Sunday, 30th March.
Mother's Day is an ideal opportunity to take a break, enjoy our lovely area and have your very own vintage afternoon tea in your picturesque cottage. Treat your very special mum to dainty sandwiches, mouthwatering savoury tartlets, mini quiches, sweet treats and of course light, fluffy, freshly made scones served with fresh, thick clotted cream and sweet, juicy strawberry jam all chased down with lightly scented loose leaf afternoon tea or a chilled glass of fizz. What could be nicer?!
Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, The Chipping Norton Tea Set offers bespoke vintage tea parties for all occasions. Whether at your home or outside venue, whatever the celebration or time of year, we provide it all.
