Note from the kitchen : Our chefs are a creative bunch and so the content and type of sweets & sandwiches that we make each day do change to suit the season. Don’t forget to ask for a take away box if you are too full to finish the items on the day. Mini savoury options are not available for those guests with specific dietary requirements, these will be removed and replaced with additional sandwiches and cakes.

“The afternoon tea is real quality, the staff are real quality and the surroundings are real quality.”

A sight to behold

“Fantastic offering , selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones. Lots of tea and coffee. Fantastic staff in a stunning location”

The Best

“Afternoon tea at Broadoaks is one of the best. Quirky touches add to the experience of dining in the orangery. The food is of the highest of standards. It is a must if visiting!”

Lovely Afternoon Tea

“The afternoon tea was lovely, good choice of cakes and sandwiches and plenty of both. The tea could be eaten in the orangery lovely on a nice day.”


Once upon a time … whilst rooting around in the depths of Broadoaks we came across a sad sight that brought a tear to our eye and made us start to ponder…

In an old cardboard box gathering dust was a collection of beautiful cups, in desperate need of some love these decorative items that were made with care and craftsmanship in a time that is all but forgotten.

Before mass production and our throw away culture, was a land where these items were cherished, the focus of the dinner table and the envy of the neighbours. Carefully used and lovingly stored, brought out for special occasions and those important times, party to all kinds of conversations, the keepers of a lifetime of secrets, faithful, loyal and loved.

They all deserve a better life so hence our Te-Cycle programme to bring them back to life again. An old companion with a new purpose, the opportunity to be appreciated again and once more the centre of attention.


Te Cycle is a way for all of us to give an old cup a new start, it is also an extra way in which we can support our nominated charity Read how to help and get involved in our charity partnership here on our charity page.

 Afternoon Tea Windermere Broadoaks Cup Rosie 

“My name is Old Vintage Rosie, I was stuck in a cabinet for the last 30 years, I was only brought out once for a dolls tea party. I joined the Broadoaks team only 4 weeks ago and it has been amazing! I have been so busy I haven’t had time to think, I’ve become so warm on the inside again I hope it never ends”

Afternoon Tea Windermere Broadoaks Cup Violet

“Hi I’m Violet blue, but only in colour now thanks to Broadoaks. All I used to stare at was the back of cupboard door with the odd cobweb, I’m a little scared of spiders so it wasn’t great. Things couldn’t be more different now, I attended a lovely couples surprise birthday meal last night and tomorrow I am going to a wedding”

Afternoon Tea Windermere Broadoaks Cup Ivy

“My name is Ivy, after my life partner just “cracked up“ one day I thought it was the end, no more fire side chats or afternoons in the garden. I felt so sad, that was until I was taken to Broadoaks now I get to see all kinds of scenery and I’m always so clean and presentable, I couldn’t wish for more“
