Rockliffe Hall

Photobucket
Today I am guest posting on Beneath the Crystal Stars while Sher enjoys foreign adventures, so I thought I would split this post across our two blogs. Last weekend I visited Rockliffe Hall in the North East of England for Afternoon Tea. You can check out the food part of the post here. I love discovering new places to go for Tea and I had been meaning to go for a while. Although perhaps a little too modern for my taste, it was nonetheless a stunning hotel with some lovely interior touches. And most importantly, there were the most mouth-watering selection of scones and cakes which tasted as though they had literally just escaped from the oven!
