If a magic genie popped out of a teapot and offered to conjure up your ideal afternoon tea, what would you ask for?
Personally, the 5pm team would request a traditional country house setting, cakes whipped up by a chef and lovely woodlands to stroll around in afterwards.
Oh, and Prosecco.
Oh – and grazing deer!
Enjoy all of the above (fizz optional) with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two at Murrayshall Country House Hotel & Golf Courses in Perthshire.
Historic country house hotel
Murrayshall House has been welcoming visitors for over three centuries, so it’s safe to say that it knows a thing or two about hospitality.
Set in 350 acres of beautiful parkland and woodland, this place has ‘elegant afternoon tea destination’ written all over it…
Special afternoon for two
The Big Deal option one is on afternoon tea for two in the lounge at Murrayshall House. Option two adds on a glass of La Delfina Prosecco each.
You can enjoy it from Monday to Thursday until the end of September. Why not save it for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary? Or combine it with a sightseeing trip to Perthshire?
Afternoon tea at Murrayshall House Hotel is a real treat. You can indulge in a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and the chef’s selection of afternoon tea cakes.
These will be accompanied by an extensive menu of teas and coffees (and Prosecco too, if you opt for it).
Individual items can change, but here is a sample menu:
Freshly prepared finger sandwiches (free range egg & cress, smoked Scottish salmon & cucumber, honey-roast ham, brie & chutney, and roast beef with horseradish)
Freshly baked pork & herb sausage rolls
Freshly baked scones with clotted cream and preserves
Chocolate gateau opera cake
Mini lemon meringue pie
Cream-filled choux bun
Iced financier sponge

Head to Perthshire for a day
Murrayshall Country House Hotel & Golf Courses is a charming spot for a spring or summer outing. As well as being situated between two golf courses, the 350 acres of grounds and woodlands are ideal for wildlife-spotting. Scone Palace is also just a 10-minute drive away.
If you like the idea of afternoon tea in a 17th century country house surrounded by grazing deer, then snap up this Big Deal as soon as possible. And for added bliss, opt for the fizz as well.
