For one weekend only, enjoy dainty sandwiches, scones, savouries and cakes with a showcase of luxury teas from Harney & Sons, served from vintage bone china and antique silverware on tables adorned with antique linens and floral displays. Soak up the beauty of the grand ballroom or the tranquil garden from the verandah.

The tea services run from Friday 26 February to Sunday 28 February with two sittings at 11am & 2pm. Come along for morning or afternoon tea or consider it a light luncheon.

With delicious bites (three savouries, scones, two mini cakes) prepared by award winning caterers Little Wolf and tea or coffee, tickets are $45 per person. For full indulgence add a glass of bubbles (Lindauer Vintage Series Rosé, Brut or Free) for $8. Tickets include a goodie bag and entry to explore the house (usually $10).

Always an occasion, tickets make a lovely gift for birthdays, anniversaries or special occasions. If you are keen make sure to book promptly as these events always sell out in advance of the dates. Bookings are absolutely essential. Book via Eventfinda:
www.eventfinda.co.nz...

All proceeds support Alberton and Heritage New Zealand in caring for 44 historic properties around the country as well us undertaking the wider work of the organisation in the promotion, protection, preservation and conservation of historical and cultural heritage of New Zealand.

We’ve been dreaming of relaxing at this colourful retro Kāpiti bach which features in our January issue. It’s the perfect sanctuary for its Wellington owners, who find themselves unwinding as soon as they walk through its front gate. Where's your favourite place to unwind over the summer?
