Sunday Afternoon tea with the girls – FAWSLEY HALL HOTEL & SPA, Northampton

Steeped in tradition and history Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa in Northamptonshire is a beautiful country house hotel surrounded by acres of beautiful gardens and parkland, so we couldn’t think of a better place to spend a 40th Birthday celebration (not mine) with my ladies.

Fawsley Hall is a beautiful place and this was my 2nd visit (previously I stayed over and used the spa facilities – equally a good evening) … Walking into the great hall always takes your breath away its  beyond stunning. We was seated in the restaurant area so was slightly disappointed we where not in my beloved great hall. Maybe next time …

We chose to have the Fawsley Full Afternoon Tea which was served with champagne and it didn’t disappoint.

There was a fab choice of finger sandwiches that were fresh and tasty served with some lovely home made fancies (the raspberry macaroons rocked), and followed with some great scones along with plenty jam and cream.

But I did have massive food envy when my friend choose the savoury afternoon tea with such delights as: Chicken Liver Parfait with Quince Jelly, Smoke salmon on rye with capers, Pastrami Bagel with mustard mayonnaise and dill pickles…. huuuuuuummmmm serious food envy. Am defiantly having that next time!
