Take tea at the Lucknam Park Hotel

Whilst your author could never afford to stay, the Lucknam Park Hotel, situated in 500 acres of listed Wiltshire parkland, just outside Bath, is a lovely spot for an afternoon tea, and offers excellent and authentic service, perfect for trips out with grandmothers.

The high tea – complete with scones, cakes, sandwiches, and a choice of teas – is served in the drawing room, which had a crackling log fire in February, and an atmosphere more relaxed and friendly than readers might expect from such a high end establishment.

Whilst it is a little expensive, the price tag of £23.50 for afternoon tea, or £14 for a Wiltshire Cream Tea is fairly acceptable for a special occasion and is within the reach of most, allowing them to see how the other half live at a beautiful hotel, with well kept gardens and a spa beyond.
