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
