Autumn has well and truly arrived in the New Forest and it is glorious! The leaves are all turning golden brown and with the fabulous weather it has been perfect for long walks out of the
back of the hotel into the forest beyond.
We have had a busy September, with some lovely weddings; we wish all our newlyweds our heartiest congratulations and wish them all the best for their married life together. We have also hosted our first murder mystery event- laughter, fun and merriment
had by all and I hope that we can host many more of these fun events. We also have had the pleasure of being host to quite a few Wedding Anniversary parties and big birthday do’s too and we want to say thank you for choosing Woodlands Lodge and Congratulations!
In other news we have ordered some new bathrooms, and are having them fitted at the beginning of November, I am
sure once they are fitted I will be very proud and post some photos on face book!!
We have also had new signs put up at the front of the hotel and they look brilliant- much more welcoming, and
everyone that passes will not fail to notice the location of Woodlands Lodge Hotel.
We have also made progress on the vegetable patch and expanding our kitchen garden. This weekend we have a team
of local horticultural enthusiasts headed up by John Trim to start whipping it into shape. We have a new greenhouse and the plan is for us to create some new raised beds and weed, weed, weed so we can prepare to plant new produce. I will keep you posted how this goes and add some pictures of the work on face book.
Fingers crossed the good weather lasts into the weekend.
We have been preparing for our part in the New Forest Wedding Show case on the 20th November 2011. If you are thinking about wedding venues, please drop in and check us out
between 10am and 5pm. We are going to be setting up our Woodlands Room for a Ceremony and in the Wedgwood room we will be setting our tables up with different decorations and designs. In my other role as Wedding planner I will be around all day to show couples the hotel, grounds and rooms.
We have also been promoting our Christmas day lunch- only £49.50 pp. and none of the hassle of preparing,
cooking and more importantly clearing up afterwards at home!
We are also hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration where we have a 5 course Gala dinner and live piano music to
take us through into 2012. Join us on this night to remember for only £49.50 p.p.
Another great autumn offer is 3 nights for 2 people, 1 night dinner for two with a complimentary bottle of house wine from only £299.00- available October/ November.
All our offers are available on the website under the Offers section.
We look forward to seeing you at the hotel soon.
