The guided tour of the house was about 1 hour and gave you an insight in to the house and it's history. The male guide was humourous and made us laugh all the way round, putting everyone in our small group at ease. He should be on the stage for acting skills as well.
The afternoon tea was in the orangery by the river with plesant views. Couldn't fault the quality of the sandwiches or cakes, but the service needs some improvements, which I hope they take on board.
Firstly there's no menu on the tables, so you don't know what sandwiches or types of cakes are being offered until your waiter informs you. We were offered 3 different cakes, but our waiter didn't inform us what the sandwiches consisted of. It wasn't until I asked (as Im a pescatarian) that ham was incuded, but which was then substituted. However, he returned to the table to inform me that the red velvet cake was not vegetarian. Also there were only fruit scones, no plain scones. The above could be averted if a simple menu in a plastic holder was on the table informing of choice(s) and indicated whether vegetarian, vegan or if there are nuts etc for those who have allergies. We also had to ask for the milk and a top up of water for our tea.
