Greetings from the New Forest!
The season is changing, already the forest is feeling more autumnal! The kids are all going back to school and Lyndhurst is going to be passable again so it’s the perfect time to visit us!
Our month has been good with lots of lovely weddings and as always we wish the best to all our fabulous couples. We have also been nice and busy as well with lots of holiday makers!
We have received a great double page spread in the Hampshire society with Chef Johns recipes on show for all to try out and a great overview of the hotel. It has really pleased us that we have had some more non-residents into the hotel off the back of this article. I would love to try them myself but not quite sure I have the cooking prowess!
27th August we held our open day and we could not have imagined how successful it would turn out! We had about 250 of our old and new friends turn up and we provided a BBQ, bouncy castle face painting and lots more! It was great fun, although we were all running around like headless chickens during the busiest part of the day. The feedback has been really positive and it has been great that we have already welcomed back so many people who came.
The month has seen the promotion of our waitress Ella to part time General Assistant and we also welcome Raynar to join our team as a full time General Assistant.
We have been re doing our to do list, I have to say it’s not got any smaller over the summer and already we have ‘mastic’ Mark back on the case. I am looking forward to completing some more of our projects!
Our New Year’s Eve and Christmas packages are already up on the website and already sparking a lot of interest, really makes you feel that Autumn is on its way! Have a look on line and give us a call if you would like to book!
Let’s hope for some good weather this September so we can get out in the forest and do lots of great walks.
Hope to see you all soon
Best wishes & take care
