Afternoon Tea

Sunday 15 November

Enjoy a delicious afternoon tea at Shuttleworth House just as it was served in the days when Dorothy Shuttleworth lived here, with dainty sandwiches and cakes served on beautiful vintage china. Why not treat yourself to a glass of Prosecco to make it even more of an occasion!

Shuttleworth House, a Grade II* home built in 1872, sits in a 5000 acre estate in the heart of rural Bedfordshire. The Arts & Crafts décor and elegant furnishings breathe life into numerous stately rooms, each celebrating the splendour of this Jacobean-inspired home.

You are welcome to explore the Swiss Garden and world famous Shuttleworth Collection before or after enjoying your afternoon tea, see here for more details –
