Pure Bliss


Having worked EVERY day since the 7th December throughout a heavily loaded Christmas and New Year season today came as a real delight.  Waving a fond farewell to 4 departing guests this morning we cleared our chores and turned to having our lovely property to ourselves.

A picnic lunch on the lawn under the liquid amber trees then the afternoon was spent in the swimming pool.  At 66000 litres it is amply big enough to swim and play in.  It is, we believe, the biggest pool in any B&B in this area.  The temperature has been at 30 degrees + since November making it so pleasant, relaxing and fun.  We know why so many of our guests just adore lounging in the pool area.

Reluctantly we left the pool but soon cheered up again as Chris prepared a wonderful Roast Beef dinner with Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes followed by strawberries (from our garden of course) and ice cream.  This we ate under the pergola watching the sun go down helped with an iced G&T.  Yummy and so enjoyable.

To top off a great day we soaked away in the spa pool watching a billion stars whilst enjoying the bubbles and a glass or few of wine.

We appreciate it when our guests comment so favourably about 88 Lodge and it’s facilities but every once in a while it’s so nice to enjoy these ourselves.

And tomorrow morning – a lie in.
