vas well as beautiful Winchester and its renowned Christmas Market- starting this month. Or visit Lymington and mooch round its boutique shops- a brilliant Saturday craft market is perfect for buying one off presents.
We also still have some availability to stay with us over Christmas and offering a fabulous 25% off per person on all our Christmas packages. Please see the festive offers section on the website for full details.
Our new bathrooms are to be fitted next week, and I can’t wait to see what they look like. We have also got our New Year winter refurb schedule sorted for minimum disruption and we are about the book the painters so we are in line for our Spring paint for the outside of the hotel. We now just have to decide on a colour for the window frames- all suggestions welcome!!!
We are getting organised for our wedding showcase on 20th November 2011, we have some fantastic flowers organised to show off our rooms to their best courtesy of Jill Stagg-we have tall and short displays to really give our couples something to think about. As well as having other great suppliers assisting us, for example, Lesley Way is making us a cake and Quality marquees have lent us their chair covers helping us make this a wedding show case to remember. Please drop in any time between 10 am and 5pm and we will be on hand to show you round and answer any questions.
Our vegetable patch is going really well- please check out our photos on facebook. We have also got an exciting 1 day course arranged for January – have a look at the website and come along and join us.
We now have leeks and garlic planted and the raised beds are coming along nicely. I hope this rain lets up as we want to erect a new greenhouse this weekend as it won’t be much fun in the rain!
Today we are introducing our winter restaurant menu and it’s one to make your mouth water- look on line for a sneak peak! The venison stew is the dish I can’t wait to eat followed by the sticky toffee pudding – Yum!!! We welcome residents and non-residents to the restaurant daily, so come along and give us a try.
October had its challenges, as we found ourselves without our internet for almost 3 weeks following a BT fault! It’s such a relief to be up and running again. A good lesson learnt though, and contingency plans are now in place, and it really brought it home on how reliant we are these days on the internet!
Anyway, I think that’s all our news from this month.
We hope to see you soon.
Take care & Best wishes
