The Whitby Family Adventure!

The Whitby Family were the lucky winners of a competition we recently held in local magazine, The Green, to win a Family Day Pass to Compton Acres along with a delicious Afternoon Tea. Grandma Jean, Mum Julie and her children, Jack and Lily, had a wonderful day exploring our colourful gardens, playing with it’s many statues and indulging in our Café and Tearoom’s scrumptious cakes and sandwiches!

Julie has said:
“I work at NatWest, Canford Cliffs Village and had never really spent any time at Compton Acres aside from watching my children’s Carol Recitals there when they attended Courthill Infant School. Since my visit I have been recommending the Cafe and Tea Rooms to my customers, it was a wonderful Afternoon Tea – the Chef’s special of Raspberry Lemonade went down very well with Jack (11) and Lily (7). My Mum, Jean, also came with us and thoroughly enjoyed herself too.

We explored the gardens and are really looking forward to going back in the spring / summer. In particular I would love to enjoy some coffee and cake at the HarbourView Cafe which was closed due to the season, however the views were still amazing. The staff that were working that day were all very friendly and welcoming (I feel I should be doing this as a Trip Advisor review lol).

A wonderful prize which has opened up our eyes to a beautiful place on our doorstep – thank you!”
