Wizards Tea in the Media
From here, we have now seen the article re-written across the internet. We’ve reached Australia, Texas USA, Paris, Brazil and further. It’s been written about in Pretty 52, Cosmopolitan UK, Heat Magazine, Demotivateur in France, Revelist, Refinery 29 which was shared by Mashable. This list is still growing as we speak.
Though this coverage is absolutely amazing for us, some of these articles aren’t quite accurate. So here’s the correct information that you need to know before you make your booking.
What is it all about?
We have combined our love for Afternoon Tea with our passion for Harry Potter.
Following the success of 2016’s themed tea (Roald Dahl inspired) we decided to choose our favourite series. We’ve grown up with Harry Potter and continue to read the books and watch the films. We can’t wait until we finally get to see the Cursed Child in London this year.
Afternoon Tea is a popular and growing trend in the UK. It originates from around the 1840’s as a mini meal to keep us going right up until supper. Traditionally it involves delicately prepared finger sandwiches with the crusts cut off, along with sweet and savoury treats.
We’ve taken the ethos of the traditional Afternoon Tea, combined with treats & flavours from the Harry Potter series and created our own menu. The teas are served in birdcage stands, a nod to the owls used in the Wizarding World.
What does the Wizards Tea include?
There are two menus available. Children can enjoy juice, finger sandwiches and some sweet treats inspired by the adventures of Harry & his friends. These include filled chocolate frogs, House shield shortbread and Sour Lollipops. Adults can tuck into treats including Pumpkin Pasties, Treacle Tarts and Rock Cakes.

When and Where is it served?
We serve Wizards Tea on Tuesdays & Thursdays in the “Common Room”. This is our guest lounge with some added extras, to make visitors as comfortable as they may have done in the school common room. The tables are all laid with red accessories.
Wizards Tea is served in the “Great Hall” on Saturdays, Sundays and school holidays. Here we have four house tables, each laid out in their individual colours. Guests are seated at their house table on arrival.
There is no “Sorting” at Llety Cynin. Unfortunately this is something that’s been mistakenly reported in the press.
Visitors are encouraged to wear their robes proudly!
What’s included if I stay?
For visitors coming from further afield, we have an overnight package. This includes a stay in one of our 8 bedrooms. We have family rooms that can cater for up to 5 guests at a time. Being located on a working dairy and sheep farm, we’re surrounded by farmland so it’s nice and peaceful.
We also have a leisure club. This includes a swimming pool, spa pool, sauna and gym. Work off some room for the tea or relax before the food. It’s up to you.
The woodland walk and park are also included. Work off the tea and explore the woodland. You won’t find any magical creatures here though.
Children wishing to stay overnight will get a free JK Rowling book that they can take home.
