£19 -- Champagne Afternoon Tea for 2 at Country Mansion
By Travelzoo Staff
Set against the Essex countryside, Pontlands Park is a great place to escape for an afternoon of indulgence. Now, two Travelzoo subscribers can get afternoon tea with a glass of champagne each, for £19 instead of the usual £36.90.

Why we love it

  • Afternoon tea for two, including a glass of champagne each, for under £10 a head
  • The bill for this treat at the newly refurbished Pontlands Park would usually add up to £36.90
  • Dating back to 1879, the Chelmsford hotel has retained many of its original Victorian features
  • The AA Hotel Guide 2013 notes the "peaceful rural location amidst attractive landscaped grounds"
    Located just moments from the A12 and two miles from Chelmsford

Nice presentation of food.

Atmosphere was rather stiff and silent. Gentle music would've been nice maybe.

surroundings are beautful and staff very attentive but the scones and cakes were not great and only three tiny finger sandwiches was a bit stingey! Bringing the tea and champagne out at the same time wasn't ideal either. Okay for £20 but wouldnt recommend otherwsie.
