Afternoon Tea Gravetye Manor, West Sussex

Enjoy afternoon tea at Gravetye Manor, a beautiful English country manor set in the heart of the glorious West Sussex countryside.

Dating back to 1598 this former family home is steeped in history and was once a smugglers hideout and store in the 17th Century. Now, in more peaceful times, it’s an idyllic haven for a relaxing afternoon tea with friends or family.

With rich wood panelled walls, crackling log fires and exquisite decor, this English country manor boasts its own 1 acre kitchen garden which supplies the kitchens at Gravetye with seasonal produce. Gravetye Manor was named the AA’s England Hotel of the Year for 2013-2014. In warmer weather, afternoon tea is served alfresco.

Afternoon tea is served on a tiered cake stand. Delicate, freshly cut sandwiches, dainty cakes and warm scones with clotted cream and home-made jam mare served with your choice from a selection of loose leaf teas or fresh roast coffee. For an extra treat why not indulge yourself with a glass of sparkling white wine.

Gravetye Manor was recently voted as one of the top 5 best afternoon tea venues in the world by Net a Porter alongside the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria in Sorrento, Italy and Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa.
