Greetings from the New Forest
Happy Easter everyone, we hope you are your loved ones had a fantastic Easter bank holiday. We had a great weekend at the hotel. We had lots of lovely guests staying with us, as well as two days of Easter Afternoon teas, Easter Egg hunt, and bouncy castle and craft fun. With the fabulous weather it was great to see so many people enjoying the lovely garden. It would, however be fair to say we also encountered some trials and tribulations on the Saturday, with a 5 hour power cut, which meant we had to improvise and call on some very kind people – thank you Quality Marquees – who lent us a generator and also to the kitchen who set up a garden kitchen/ BBQ so that we could continue with the Easter lunches and also our Easter afternoon teas- I have to say as always the Woodlands team pulled it out of the hat!!
The last few months have seen us start back up into wedding season, and this has been lovely to be a part of our couples special day- and the hotel has looked lovely whether it has been a wedding afternoon tea or a three course wedding breakfast. It is always amazing to see the finished result and all the bridal party endeavours come together on the wedding day, utterly beautiful.
We are about to undertake some garden maintenance and painting in the next month as well, lets hope the good weather continues, so we can get cracking on these projects and have everything ship shape for summer.
The New Forest has sprung into life over the last few weeks, and the impossible seems possible with the flowers starting to bloom- not long now until the Rhododendrons and azaleas start to come up. This is the perfect time to come to the New Forest, and as well take a trip to Exbury Gardens which we also can offer guests of the hotel a 20% discount too!! We have some fabulous dinner bed and breakfast offers and look forward to welcoming you to the hotel soon.
Take care and best wishes
Greetings from the New Forest – January 2019
Happy New Year and we wish you all a healthy 2019.
We had a wonderful Christmas at Woodlands, the Christmas trees looked lovely and the food tasted delicious. So, a big well done to all our staff who made the whole festive season possible, and a thank you to all the guests that came to enjoy a festive lunch, festive afternoon tea, party night, Christmas get away and New Year’s Gala dinner.
We didn’t stop there we also hosted a beautiful wedding and even had the bishop as a guest. It was lovely that the bride and groom combined Christmas decorations as their wedding theme- even giving each gift as a bauble as a favour. The flowers were also beautiful and complemented -the winter season and the Christmas decorations. We look forward to seeing the pictures.
We also held a super dog friendly 30th birthday. So hard when your birthday is next to Christmas, but Mindy’s birthday was a blast I’m sure that no one realised Christmas was only 2 weeks from then. It was great that we were able to create a relaxing weekend that could be enjoyed by humans and canines alike!!! We look forward to seeing you all soon.
We have been enjoying dare I say a dry spell over the last few weeks too. This has dried the forest up a treat and made that early morning dog walk a lot more pleasant. The Forest is great in all months, and we have got some sensational winter offers to attract you to the Woodlands Lodge!
Now we are in January, we can crack on with our maintenance plans and have several little projects to work on during these next few quieter months so we are in ship shape by Spring!
We hope to see you all soon, and once again Happy New Year.
