Although looking at the exterior of the hotel I wondered what to expect I was pleasantly surprised at the warm and friendly welcome and the fantastically presented, fresh and delicious food served. Never judge a book by its cover. I will certainly consider returning or recommending to friends
Purchased this for my mum's 80th birthday and she had a very enjoyable time. The Hickstead is off the beaten track and is a nice getaway for a relaxing afternoon tea. Speaking of which there was plenty to eat and drink and if you can't finish everything the staff are more than willing to put it into a "doggy bag" to enjoy later on! Personally couldn't eat for the rest of the day as was so full up! Thoroughly recommended.
This was my fourth afternoon tea for two and it was absolutely perfect .I couldn't fault it if i tried.We will definitely return to charingworth manor.Well done Excellent.
My oldest friend and I went for a combined birthday celebration. I was very impressed by the service, attentive but not obtrusive. The scones were warm with lashings of cream and jam served in bowls, the sandwiches were tasty and traditional, egg mayonnaise, smoked salmon with pepper and ham with mustard, maybe a little too much if I'm being picky, and the cakes were to die for. Strawberry, cream meringue, chocolate cake and eclairs. All made on the premises, as were the shortbread biscuits. The sandwiches freshly made, not chilled which I have experienced once before at another venue. Went in January so only one other couple having tea at the same time, so might be different at the height of the season. Also impressed by the clean and nice smelling ladies toilets, I always notice these things. All in all I would heartily recommend this venue, even more so as I purchased the experience during the sale. However it would have been worth the full price.
We visited on a cold and wet day, but the venue was warm and welcoming. The tea was delicious with home made cakes and scone. The lounge was elegant with a sense of history and very comfortable.
Table laid ready and waiting for us in the Lounge right next to the window, overlooking Harrogate.
The staff were very welcoming and the young man who served us was extremely pleasant and helpful. The food was impressively presented as well as delicious. My partner can not eat butter and I had mentioned this on the form before the day but when the sandwiches came with butter on the young man made every attempt to sort out the problem. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and the setting was beautiful. We had been given Champagne Afternoon Tea last year as a gift from my son ... not a Red Letter Day .. and the comparison was great. This was a far superior effort and there were lovely touches with the special little cakes in the shape of swans, thank you for a memorable day.
I bought this for my mum who is 83 and lives a 140 miles away. It was really special to have a couple of hours together in really nice surroundings. The Staff were very attentive and the food was really nice.
The location was beautiful. Farington Lodge is in its own grounds and was so peaceful although many people there. They were so helpful as I do not have a printer so used the card that came with the paperwork and they were quite satisfied with that. I would recommend the service you provide to anybody interested in a tea for two experience. Well done..
This was a gift I bought for my parents. They had a wonderful time at Bagden Hall. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
Very efficient service plenty of time to enjoy a delicious and plentiful array of sandwiches, cakes and scones washed down with an endless supply of tea or coffee. Even had some left over to take home for the children.
We received a warm welcome from staff and, as it was a beautiful day, were able to sit out in the lovely garden. The food and service were impeccable and we were very well looked after. The friend I went with eats a gluten-free diet and they gave her an excellent selection of sandwiches and mini cakes and desserts. What a treat! I would happily recommend this as a great gift. The only downside was that they had to rearrange our booking as they needed the hotel for a wedding on our original date. That's not to take away from what was the perfect afternoon tea.
We were welcomed with friendliness and warmth. Beautiful surroundingsand a wonderful hotel. Really scrumptious tea with endless pots of tea. Really friendly and attentive staff. I highly recommend The Hickstead.
Very impressed with venue and the service. First class in every way.
One of the gifts I received for my 60th birthday was a Red Letter Days Afternoon Tea package. It arrived in a study red envelope and I was really excited when I opened it. The package was well presented and gave a really good first impression,the instructions were easy to follow and, in no time at all I had redeemed the enclosed voucher on the Red Letter Day website and left to make my choice of when and where to enjoy the experience. I chose Farington Lodgel in Preston and was able to select three dates in order of preference and given my first choice. When I arrived at the hotel with my husband, we were greeted by friendly staff and shown a choice of seating and immediately offered fresh tea or coffee, the wonderful selection of sandwiches and cakes were brought shortly afterwards and we were kept supplied with fresh tea. The hotel is set in lovely grounds and the garden room was very pleasant with soft music in the background. This special experience will be remembered for a long time.
The hotel is a gorgeous mansion but relaxed and inviting. The grounds are mature and tranquil for a little stroll and great for kids. The tea was perfect and staff friendly and also perfect!
This was an excellent hotel to spend a few hours enjoying our afternoon tea. The staff are so friendly and very obliging. I would not heesitate to stay at the old Swan when i am next in the area.
We arrived a little early but it wasn't a problem. We were seated straight away. The staff were excellent. Polite and friendly. The sandwiches were fresh and the cakes and scones wonderful. A great experience. Thank you
The day was lovely and we really enjoyed our afternoon tea at Bagden Hall, we were treated very well and the afternoon tea was excellent. Would love to do it again sometime.
A splendid afternoon tea at a very nice venue of Bagden Hall, near Huddersfield. The staff were exceptional and pampered to our every need. Lashings of dainty sandwiches, scones with fresh strawberries, jam and cream together with little cakes, and we could have had more if we had any room! Plenty of cups of tea all very nicely served. Couldn't have been better for myself and my friend. Here's to the next time!
