The Nare is challenging guests to get involved and have some fun with a new In Time For Tea competition. This idea was conceived following the freak snowfall incident in March when Toby had to use his Land Rover and chains to help guests reach the hotel. At the end of the day before the snow disappeared he took to his ski’s to make it back to the hotel in time for afternoon tea. Do watch the video evidence below and one can read the full story here.

To get involved simply come up with imaginative footage of one's journey or arrival at the hotel and post it onto social media using the hashtag #timefortea and tag @thenarehotel. If possible please include a photo of a watch or clock at ten to four. For those less comfortable with social media, images or video may be sent via email to

The prize for the winning entry is a choice of either a private sailing on Alice Rose or a full day's use of the hotel chauffeur service. The deadline for entries is 31st July 2019.

Note: If one needs luggage to arrive by an alternative means then NLA (Nare Luggage in Advance) can be arranged.
