Somerleyton Hall 5/5

The final week at Somerleyton has shown you some shots of the hall itself. We did not go inside, there is a lot of ground to cover and things to see just in the gardens I showed you last week.

 

Well who guessed correctly yesterday then, yes that area I showed from the outside is the very attractive tea rooms and I can vouch for the excellent quality of the food served in there by very amenable staff.

 

The hall has its own website here where full details for visiting can be obtained and, although this time we didn't go into the hall I'm sure we will go back to do so another day.

I think the Hall's website might be interested in your collection, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Worth a thought that Ray.

How could you NOT resist a tea room like this, Brian. Priorities!
Brian Walbey: We had a very enjoyable lunch Ginnie, perhaps we should meet there for an SC lunch one day, it is only just up the road from Richards house by the sea.

It's all very civilised Brian
Brian Walbey: And one gets a good lunch there as well Chris.
What an elegant place! You could enjoy a very civilised afternoon tea there. Great collection of images, and I love the sculptures. (:o)
Brian Walbey: WE certainly had an enjoyable lunch there Rosalyn.
That looks very nice indeed, I could fancy taking tea amount those plants. (And imagination I was on a secret assignation - see yesterday's comment!).

I could see SCers meeting here Brian, there's plenty to see and eat by the looks of things.
Brian Walbey: It would make a lovely day out tracy if the gardens and inside of the house were included as well.
what a very English scene, well captured by yourself.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Tim.
Blimey that looks quite POSH Brian.
Brian Walbey: Only the best for the Walbey family Chad, and it's well up to SC standards also.

Oh, I would like to sit down there and order an English cream tea - just now ( before I'll go a dance homage to the "Queen" (band) in Essen) -a nice weekend for you and your wife!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. A cream tea in here would be delightful.
After having lunch or tea you wouldn't want to leave, a very lovely place to sit and relax smile
Brian Walbey: It is a very pleasant tearoom Linda, a nice place to sit as you say.
Tea rooms ...so I wasn't far off with my coffee suggestion.

Sounds a good idea Brian ...but a long treck for those in the soft south west
Brian Walbey: A bit of a trek for us as well Richard although you must be used to it by now.
I have really enjoyed these sets Brian. All of the photographs were excellent.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Shaun.
Yes, I thought it was the eatery - you could see a table in yesterday's shot smile
Brian Walbey: And a fine eatery it is as well Tom.
The tea rooms, always an important feature in any visit smile
Brian Walbey: Just about the most important feature John especially when it is a touch photogenic smile
looks a nice place for a refreshing cuppa, good shot again
Brian Walbey: It was a very pleasant place for lunch Derek.
I wasn't too far, I thought this was a retaurant.
What a delightful place!
Brian Walbey: I just know you would enjoy a lunch in here after one of your Saturday morning walks round the estate and gardens Richard.
Brian I have looked at your Somerleyton series with interest,Some very fine images of an interesting looking Property. We have only recently discovered the wonders of Suffolk -staying at Orford this Summer,will look this place up on our next visit.
Martin
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin. Suffolk, along with Norfolk, is a fine county and we hadmany holidays up that way when we lived in St.Ives near Huntingdon when our children were small.

Looks a very grand tea room, Brian. I thought at first it was early guests at a wedding reception. Please to see the LH statue in particular has covered in the right place; don't want to offend the old dears.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely tea room Alan. Lol at the rest of your comment, wouldn't want foreign bodies falling in the soup would we smile
Your presentations are so splendid Brian. I woud love a creanm tea here with the wife.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you and your wife would thoroughly enjoy a cream tea at Somerleyton Scotia, and a certain young fellow would enjoy a romp throught the gardens and parkland as well.
