Greetings from the New Forest,
Well that was a lovely summer- and it seems to be continuing into September making the Forest incredibly enticing and I need to get back to work! I have had a wonderful summer enjoying the Forest, and exploring new parts too. I think my favourite bits have been cycling in the Forest- amazing now the children can cycle without stabilisers!! And also, we went walking through the stream near the hotel and walking on the fallen tree stumps- such a wonderful afternoon thoroughly enjoyed by all. Intermingled with the exploratory pursuits we have had a successful summer at the hotel and met a lot of fabulous guests and dogs! As well as had some great weddings too.
We are now looking forward to the Autumn and Winter and putting together our Christmas packages and Winter deals. I know it seems early but it’s never too early if you’re the planner 🙂
We are having 2 party nights this year, as well as festive afternoon teas, and a big 3 day package for the actual Christmas Day and finishing with a wonderful New Years gala dinner and live music to dance to welcome the 2017.
We are also looking to bring back our very popular 3 nights for £300 deal from November- February.
Our Head Chef Andy Smith is still whipping up a storm in the kitchen and I am really excited to see what he is creating for the Autumn menu. You may have seen some photos on social media this week. Looks and tastes amazing and last night in the restaurant one of our diners said it was the best meal she had ever eaten, which really fills us all with such pride and satisfaction throughout our whole team.
Now all are back to school I will back to the hotel in full force and bringing lots of enthusiasm as well as a welcome return to Charlotte who will be coming back at the end of this month, as we say goodbye to Ed as he returns to university and so good luck for your second year.
We hope to welcome you soon
