In 1623, near Lake Windermere, the foundations of the now very elegant Swan hotel were laid. Luckily for all us tea lovers, they are not only using tea pots for very stylish lighting. Big brown tea pots with their house blend compete for table space at breakfast as well as serving a really wonderful range of leaf tea at other times of the day – spectacularly meeting the hearts desire of any self respecting leaf tea fanatic. I adore the decor and would very happily copy any aspect of their beautiful interior design. Tea with Mary Kate will be rushing back to this gorgeous venue.
