I was so excited about going to the Food and Wine Weekend and was so looking forward to a relaxing weekend. It absolutely surpassed expectations. Those who know me know that that is no mean feat! I had absolutely no idea what to expect as far as the accommodation went but I was amazed and delighted by the whole property. Here is the link to my blog with photos etc from the weekend.

You have created a wonderful atmosphere and a very efficient, immensely likeable team. Everything about our stay was superb. Obviously the fishing for me was amazing, but all the trouble you took to see that Brenda was entertained and happy was very much appreciated.
