Spring is in the Air

Spring is here at last, we have had some beautiful sunny days in the New Forest and guests have been able to sit out in our secluded garden. The golden daffodils are in full bloom bringing a splash of colour to the whole area and lifting everyone's spirits knowing that the warmer days and lighter evenings are just around the corner.

If you fancy a short break in the beautiful New Forest National Park at Easter you can stay 2 nights and get the 3rd night free from £175-00 per person dinner bed and breakfast. It is an ideal area for cycling and walking, we have a secure covered bike shed to store your bikes and if you want to leave your car at home you can get a train from Waterloo direct to Brockenhurst. It only takes one hour and thirty five minutes and you would avoid the Easter traffic jams. There's even a chance you might see the first foal of the year!

However you might just prefer to sit, unwind and relax in one of our cosy lounges or if the weather is nice in our secluded garden. The choice is yours but whatever you like to do we aim to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing away from the stresses of everyday life.

Speaking of stress I did drive to London on Thursday to be a guest on the radio with my eldest daughter Amanda. We were being interviewed by Viv Oyolu of Dream Corner on FM101.4. If it hadn't been for Amanda who knows the roads around Hammersmith I would still be driving round the roundabout, as it was I did manage to go round twice. However we arrived at the studios safely and on time. Dream Corner is a radio show and online hub of interviews inspiring women of all ages to follow their dreams or passion. Viv is a warm and bubbly person with a great sense of humour and we were enjoying ourselves so much that the hour just flew by.

It was an exciting day because Amanda was on the One Show on BBC1 that evening and we rushed back to see the programme. It had been pre recorded so Amanda was nervous about watching herself on TV as they always edit programmes but I thought she was brilliant! [Yes, I know I'm her proud Mum!] She is the course leader at Winchester University  on the Vocal and Choral course and she was speaking about how the voice can develop. She is speaking to the Wessex Women on May 22nd on presentation skills a talent many people are lacking.

Finally I wish all Mothers a very happy and relaxing Mothering Sunday

Til next time
