afternoon tea & wellbeing treats

Afternoon tea has been the perfect reason to get together for a gossip since 1840, when it was introduced by the Duchess of Bedford. Here at Burley Manor we believe there is no better way to spend the afternoon – Especially when it’s paired with one of our wellbeing treatments.

Once you’ve been welcomed into our beautiful manor take some time to rest after your travels in our lounge. Then, it’s time to make your way to our wellbeing rooms, perfectly placed at the start of our garden suites, overlooking the stunning forest views.

Choose from our selection of soul renewing 55-minute treatments developed by Temple Spa, whether it be a skin boosting facial or a full body massage, you’re sure to leave feeling refreshed. The Temple Spa range of luxurious and indulgent treatments have been carefully selected to leave you feeling refreshed long after you leave the serenity of our treatment rooms. Revive your senses and feel good with a little bit of pampering time, simply re-energise and escape the pressures of everyday life.

Then, head onto our terrace to finish off your indulgent afternoon. Take a seat and feel the warm rays on your freshly rejuvenated skin. Enjoy a cup of one of our speciality Birchall teas with a tasty selection of chef’s sandwiches; smoked salmon & celeriac remoulade, cream cheese with cucumber & dill, free range chicken with little gem, sun blushed tomato & rosemary mayonnaise and Hampshire ham with apple & spiced red onion jam – Delicious!

Time to delve into a selection of sweet treats including mouth-watering pave of chocolate, carrot cake, lime panna cotta and our seasonal tartlet, lemon meringue pie. Not forgetting our homemade scones served with Dorset clotted cream and Naked strawberry jam.

Here, there is absolutely no need to rush. So, take your time, enjoy your foodie treats whilst overlooking the red deer sanctuary and relish in that feel-good feeling. Toast to a fabulous ladies afternoon with a glass of sparkling – Cheers!
