Can you think of a better way to while away a lazy weekend than with a steaming cup of tea, a warm buttery scone and a beautiful view of the Brecon Beacons? Well neither can we! It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day to treat your favourite lady to a scrumptious afternoon tea in Wales, you can visit us here at Gliffaes any time!
Not only can we offer you an incredible buffet of cakes, scones, sandwiches and more; we are also lucky enough to be surrounded by our gorgeous grounds and arboretum, so you and mum can take a leisurely spring stroll through the spring flowers and along the river Usk. In spring, the garden will truly be coming to life, with daffodils, camilias and hyacinths making an appearance with the magnolias following hot on their heels. Take a look at these gallery pages of Spring flowers. Daffodils. More Spring flowers.
If you are looking for something a little more formidable than a simple daff, then a stroll around the arboretum is definitely worth your while. Marvel at the stature of our impressive ancient oaks, which are a spectacle during all seasons. If you are lucky, our glorious Magnolias might be coming into bloom, with their beautiful large flowers. The Japanese Maples are also a good year-round sight to see, with their beautiful foliage.
Between the beautiful surroundings and the scrumptious (and bottomless!) afternoon tea, Gliffaes is the perfect place to bring your mum at any time of year- she deserves it! For more information about our afternoon tea in South Wales, or to book, give us a call 01874 730 371.
Due to the high demand for Sunday lunch on Mother’s Day we are also offering Sunday lunch on Saturday 25th March, if that makes sense. If you can’t make that then you can always treat mum to an afternoon tea voucher, to be used any time.
We are planning to fully open from May 17th
We are also planning to offer outdoor lunch on the terrace from May 1st. (No details as yet)
Boris has spoken and it sounds as if ENGLAND will not be opening hotels until 17th May, I assume WALES will follow suit.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
