High tea... Tea tepid, service dreadful, macaroons not fresh, Poured tea for the gentleman first? Then reached across the table to pour mine? Sandwiches were the only thing that saved the afternoon from being a total disaster.

We arrived on the day of the garden party, so the house entry was free, but it is a Provincial site, so is included in the Provincial Site pass which can be purchased on site. The structure is that of a grand house. At one...More
