You might have seen a robin or spotted a cherry blossom, but in Loudoun County you know it’s spring when Oatlands Historic House and Gardens resumes its schedule. This year that date is Monday, March 23.
Returning visitors know that the Afternoon Tea program is worth the trip. The schedule can be a little complicated and advance reservations are required. With the shrinking number of civilized afternoon tea programs nationwide, this bounty of treats with tea sandwiches, sweets, scones, and the special blend of afternoon tea adds to the magnificence of the property and the setting. This year there are even occasional Sunday teas.
The designated National Trust site with its immaculate gardens also hosts a varied number of events including an art show and an antiques fair. If you are looking for elegance in the countryside, this destination certainly accommodates.
Welcome, Spring. Check out the Plantation.
