Traditional Afternoon Tea

Scott's parents have arrived in England for a visit for the next month. They spent a few days in London first and then they arrived in our little town a few days later. The day they arrived was my mother-in-law's birthday and so to celebrate we went to a traditional afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday (a day late). We went to a lovely hotel with magnificent grounds called Coombe Abbey. Originally a 12th Century Cistercian Abbey nestling in England's historic heartland in Warwickshire, the Coombe Abbey Hotel has been restored and it is set within 500 acres of breathtaking parkland. It was a lovely way to spend a beautiful afternoon in England! 
The traditional afternoon tea was lovely. The cakes and tea sandwiches were delicious! 
My own little pot of English tea. Heaven!

Beautiful white swans were swimming around the canal area by the entrance to the hotel.
Looks like a secret garden entrance on the hotel grounds....
