As we head to the spring of 2018 

Heavy rain, mini hurricanes and a good dowsing of snow 

have all visited the Piddle Valley.

This month we are doing a little more decorating,

the start of things to come. 

Hopefully by Easter we will be part opening the stables

for photographers to use.

The old flint walls, cobbled floor in contrast with corrugated steel

provide a perfect back drop for all manner of shoots.

The first weekend in May is the planned date for the

full launch of South House Retreat coffee shop,

opening throughout summer until September

weekends and bank holidays only.

Giving you the chance to indulge in cream teas, delicious cakes

and afternoon tea on the lawn, beside the river

or on chillier days in the period drawing room by a crackling log fire.

Also, we have plans to revamp the rest of the stable block

and paddocks beyond our gardens to offer DIY livery.

Our ancient apple trees produce lovely cooking and eating fruit

which will be turned into homemade goodies for your delight.

The terrace will be extended giving more lazing space around the

hot tub and we are installing a smokery! 

Massages and holistic therapies will be available 

for resident guests, also Psychic readings. 

So, you can see as always, we are busy bees.

But in spite, and alongside all of this we put our guests

and visitors first. We will still offer the first-class service

we always have, the only difference is you will have more

lovely things to assist your enjoyment and relaxation at

South House Retreat.

We would like to thank you all for your fantastic reviews

and comments both in our visitors' books and online.

The 5-star certificate of excellence we have been awarded

is all thanks to you guys giving us feedback 

We hope to see you soon!

Tracy and Martin
