If your mum is anything like ours, she LOVES an afternoon tea. Throw in a couple of hours spent with her favourite child (you) and it’s a present that’s bound to put the biggest smile on her face. To help you make sure that you’re the one who gets the best hugs, we’ve put together a list of the best afternoon tea gift vouchers out there so you can treat your mum like the queen that she is.
Lodge on Loch Lomond
As if it gets any more fancy than this. Nestled along the gorgeous banks of Loch Lomond, the views are enough to make your mum swoon before she even gets to the food. Treat yourselves with finger sandwiches, haggis bon bons, and cheddar croquettes before digging into a choice of sweets like Scottish berry tartlet, sticky ginger bread, and billionaire’s shortbread. You can buy vouchers for standard, fizz, or champagne afternoon teas, all starting at £22.50 per person.
If you’ve been to Cumbria and haven’t been to the Fizzy Tarte, you have seriously missed out. This Champagne patisserie bar is the ultimate in indulgence, serving up delicious cakes with glasses of bubbles and cocktails. Their afternoon tea is the star of the show though, with strawberry and Champagne tortes, chocolate truffles, and the finest quality teas and rosé prosecco.
Treat your mum like the lady she is with a trip to Armathwaite hall. Set in a stunning country house, this is the kind of place that she’ll really thank you for taking her. The afternoon tea is classic but refined; homemade scones, glasses of fizz, and the daintiest sandwiches you ever did see. If you’re feeling extra generous you can even book a stay and enjoy the spa facilities the next day.
Six at the Baltic Centre
The afternoon tea at Six is known for being one of the best in Newcastle. Even if it wasn’t though, you’d still want to make the trip here for the gorgeous views. Overlooking the Gateshead Quayside, it’s a really nice spot to while away the afternoon with your mum, sipping tea and enjoying their amazing scones. If you’re looking for the pick of the afternoon tea gift vouchers, it doesn’t get much better than Six.
Hardwick Hall Hotel
Another one of our gorgeous spots to snap up great afternoon tea vouchers, your mum is going to be delighted when you arrive at this amazing destination. A stately house, set on a lake, it’s a great place to while away an afternoon. Your traditional afternoon tea is served on china designed by Ted Baker and you’ll feel like you’re living the high life with an afternoon here.
It doesn’t get much more picturesque than Wiltshire and Wiltshire doesn’t get much more picturesque than Whatley Manor. Set in stunning countryside, this one is sure to put a smile on your mum’s face. There’s standard afternoon tea and a deluxe version served with champagne or a bellini for you to choose from. (Of course you’re going to go for the bellini…..) Remember to bring your scarves though as there’s plenty of scope for an afternoon walk through the gorgeous grounds afterwards.
Angel Hotel Abergavenny
Having won the UK Tea Guide’s Award of Excellence since 2008, you know that The Angel Hotel are going to deliver. They have an in-house baker who prepares all the ingredients for your afternoon tea each day and there’s even a High Tea option if you’re really pushing the boat out. If your mum is a tea fiend, this is the place for her: they have a huge selection of teas from around the world to wash down your expertly made sweet-treats.
