In a year that celebrates Her Majesty becoming the first British Monarch to reach the Platinum Jubilee milestone of 70 years of service, there is even more reason to indulge in a spot of tea or raise your champagne glass – and there is nothing quite like sitting down for afternoon tea, the warming tea blends, sweet and savoury treats. 

British Travel Journal has teamed up with Pride of Britain Hotels to offer you the opportunity to win one of four Champagne afternoon teas in a luxury hotel with glorious gardens. 

Our fortunate winners will be hosted in one of four gorgeous hotel settings: Mediterranean-inspired luxury hideaway, Feversham Arms in North Yorkshire; four-acres of English cottage garden at The Priory, on the banks of the River Frome in Dorset; the romantic restored 17th century parterre, lily pond and rose gardens of Bodysgallen in north Wales; and the secluded three-acre rose garden of Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa in Newmarket, while looking out to one of the world’s most famous racecourse and stables. 

Enjoy the tradition of Afternoon Tea at The Priory, served in the relaxed comfort of either The John Turner Restaurant or on The River Terrace in the summertime. Afternoon Tea here includes a selection of traditional finger sandwiches, delicious homemade cakes and scones, jam, clotted cream, served with a pot of your choice of Hoogly Tea blend. At Bodysgallen Afternoon Tea is served in their oak panelled hall, library or drawing room, or on warm summer days outside on the terrace. 

Bodysgallen’s Traditional Afternoon Tea includes a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, cakes and pastries and a choice of freshly brewed teas. Afternoon Tea at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa, popularised by their very own Anna Maria, The Duchess of Bedford, is served daily and can be taken in Squires Restaurant, Roxana Bar, or on the sun terrace overlooking the stunning lawns and rose gardens at the hotel – the choice is yours.

With manor homes, castles, woodland retreats, elegant lodges and city boltholes there is a special experience awaiting every guest.
