Christmas at Montrose Inn

Today we enjoyed an afternoon tea at our local Montrose Inn

I thought you might enjoy seeing this lovely manor! We were very fortunate today and were the only guests so we had the tea room and the rest of the manor to ourselves... what a very special treat that was!

The woman who runs and owns the house, Diane, just so happens to LOVE bears and this is one of the highlights of my visits! She has received several ... actually ALL as gifts from her cherished guests! They line the staircase and can be found here and there throughout the home!

Hoping your holiday preparations are going well and that you are able to take a little time for yourself to sit back and enjoy the magic of Christmas!

Diane explains each sandwich... Yummy!

Delicious! And so beautifully presented too...

More Montrose bears...
I must apologize... right here there should be a photo of fresh baked lemon scones with jam and clotted cream... but there simply was no time to take a photo! No sooner were they placed on the table and all three of us were licking our lips with only crumbs left on our plates before I remembered to pick up the camera... they were melt in your mouth fabulous!

Then came the sweets.... oh my!
