A couple of week’s ago, Hallsannery was transformed into a vintage venue for a 60th birthday celebration. Donna and Simon (of fame) wove their magic creating an amazing afternoon tea – quite literally fit for a queen!

With themed drinks on arrival, served by Simon, appropriately attired guests were ushered into the Sitting Room for chat and gramaphone nostalgia, before moving into the Dining Room for the main event. Beautifully bedecked in vintage china and fresh flowers, the cake stands overflowed with sandwiches (crusts cut off – of course), scones and a multitude of mouthwatering cakes – all freshly baked by Donna in our farmhouse kitchen.

If you’re coming to Hallsannery and would like Donna and Simon to create your very own vintage event, do get in touch, or, for smaller groups, pop down to Riverside Cottage at the bottom of our drive for ‘tea by the Torridge’.
