There are unique pieces on the walls of the tearoom which you are also able to purchase. Having them displayed on the walls gives you the idea of what it would look like in your own home. As well as this they have pom poms and reindeer horns for that added vintage chalet theme.
The vintage tearoom is situated within the Blithbury Reindeer Lodge, which is home to…yes you guessed it – Reindeers! You can catch a glimpse of them out in the fields or in their shelters. They even host events such as meet the babies and Christmas experiences. To find out more about the lodge itself you can check out the website for it here.
Linking to the reindeers, the lodge and tearoom have a festive feel. Especially with the décor outside with signs such as ‘Elves Workshop’ and a decorative sleigh. It feels like everyday of the year is Christmas. Which for someone like me who loves that time of the year, is the perfect place to be. Also, in the better weather they have picnic benches outside for customers to sit on and enjoy the sunshine.
8. Family friendly
There are small and large tables which make it the ideal place to go with your family as you would all be able to sit around a table together. They also do offer afternoon tea bookings so you can be guaranteed a table as its so well loved, it is always full of customers. You can also arrange group bookings in advance as well as afternoon tea to ensure that everyone will get a seat.

The staff are so friendly and welcoming, so much so you feel like a part of a family as soon as you step in the door. They are also so accommodating, for example if you want to order something, as they make it there and then for you they are able to customize it for you.
There is a ramp which leads into the lodge so that it is easily accessible for those who have pushchairs or who are disabled. Making this tearoom the best place for everyone to visit.
