We're turning three! Celebrate with one of our favourite local businesses of the last three years:
It's sometimes good to pause for thought and let the modern world wend its merry way, and even better to leave it altogether. Time, then, to tarry a while at Athelhampton House & Gardens.
- For £14 (a £32 value), partake of admission to the 15th century house and beautiful gardens before enjoying a Dorset cream tea -- two scones, jam, clotted cream, and a pot of tea each -- for two at the Topiary Restaurant.
- Or for £27 (a £64 value), choose admission to the house and gardens with a Dorset cream tea for four people.
- Steeped in history, the elegant house-turned museum was well known by poet Thomas Hardy and features in the poem 'The Dame of Athelhall'; the gardens, built between 1891 and 1899 by Alfred Cart de Lafontaine, are full of variety: the formal architecture is balanced by woodland scenes.
Forget the strain of keeping up with the daily grind -- milk the moment for all it's worth, and allow yourself to go weak in the presence of brewed tea and stunning surroundings.
