Greetings from the New Forest.
Ok, so totally over winter… come on spring make an appearance. It all started off quite exciting with the first massive snowfall we have seen in 6 years. The road was covered for 2 days!! It was insane, people were stuck on the A31 and actually walked to the hotel, so from 3 rooms booked we were actually full by the end of the night- absolutely crazy. Obviously the rest of the weekend was quite slow because no one could get out of their houses, which is such a shame and hopefully those guests will be able to join us again soon. But then 2 weeks later we get a second snow fall- we have never had 2 snowfalls in one year. However we are now over the snow, and ready for a stonking summer.
We have been taking the down time, as an opportunity to re do the bathroom in room 6, it now looks great. We have also been busy in the restaurant, and are going to be relaunching our menu any day now, and we are also changing our restaurant name, from Hunter’s to the aptly named Cattle Grid, if you have stayed with us before you will understand 🙂 It’s exciting, so keep an eye out for the changes.
Our wedding season has also officially kicked off, with our first wedding last weekend, which was great and we wish Mr and Mrs Saich every happiness. This is just the beginning with 6 weddings in April we are really excited to see how they will look and of course the dresses!
We look forward to seeing you all soon,
Best wishes and take care
