My high tea dress at Coworth Park, Dorchester Collection's luxury country house hotel & spa
High tea which is different from afternoon tea, is an English dining custom, where tea is served at the table with high back dining chairs in the late afternoon. I was recently a guest at the Coworth Park, Dorchester Collection's luxury country house hotel & spa near London, and enjoyed high-tea in their elegant drawing and dining room with stunning countryside views. Coworth Park is nestled amid 240 acres of picturesque Berkshire parkland at Ascot.
Dressed in a Karen Millen embroidered, black dress and black Karen Millen sandals, I had a taste of a quintessentially British afternoon drinking fine tea in plush surroundings, whilst admiring the beauty of the breathtaking English countryside. The hotel offers an extensive menu of teas including some which are rare and glamorous. If you get lucky, you might even run into a George Clooney or a Russell Crowe, as Hollywood celebrities have often been spotted enjoying afternoon tea here. The service of the staff is exceptional as they serve you with their utmost attention and sincerity. Dress code is smart casual - my advise is not to overdress and keep it simple and elegant.
Here are some pictures from my afternoon at Coworth Park, as I get ready for the buggy ride to take me to the hotel's drawing and dining room from my room located a little further away from the hotel's main building.
