Rather than book directly through a comparison site as we normally do I arranged for the booking to be made directly at the hotel by my company and at £100+ per night was not the... More

Afternoon tea on the terrace made a fitting start to our mid-week stay at this lovely old house. Built more than 160 years ago for one of pottery legend Josiah Wedgwood's grandsons who wanted to get away from the hurly burly of life in Stoke's industrial centre, it provides a stylish and peaceful getaway just a few minutes' drive from...

We visited last week for the afternoon teas which was for a birthday treat. The house is stunning and set in lovely grounds. There was wedding taking place so the entrance was very crowded and we were mistaken for guests. We informed a member of staff that we had booked for the tea and went to sit in the library... More

If you have been looking for a wedding venue and have considered the Upper House, look no further. I honestly don't think you could beat it! We held my daughters wedding here on Sunday, they had 3 weddings over the bank holiday weekend and I have to admit that I was worried, that ours being the last, they may have... More

We went for afternoon tea but there were 2 weddings on at the time. We found it quite crowded and loud on occasion with the wedding guests using the afternoon tea rooms to... More

My wife and I came for Afternoon Tea with a party numbering over 50 and we were in the Novello Room with beautiful views over the park and woodland. The service and quality of the food was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and plates and trays were replenished with more food and tea and coffee was plentiful. My wife... More
