A couple of weeks back I was invited along by Laura Ashley to check out their boutique hotel in Elstree, Hertfordshire. Set nine miles outside of London, we hopped on a gorgeous vintage bus which took us there in style, to be greeted with afternoon tea and prosecco. It doesn't get much better than that! Mini sandwiches a plenty, clotted cream and jam, pistachio macarons and little chocolate mousses to die for - dreamy.
We were then treated to a tour of The Manor, where we were talked through the design of each room by a head designer and shown which products and finishing touches were used in each. Bespoke, boutique, luxury - just what you'd expect!
Keep your eyes out for a recipe up soon featuring some rather lovely little touches from Laura Ashley. Think cheese... lots of cheese.
