We’re One of the 10 Cosiest Hotels!

Monday, February 1st, 2010

This is our kind of writeup. The Guardian have included us as one of the 10 cosiest hotels in the UK to beat the winter chill. We love being thought of as cosy, it means much more us than accolades of being grand. Which we’re not, really.

A Very Cosy Bed

- DVDs to enjoy in-room.
- Cashmere-covered hot waterbottles

- Big mugs of hot choc
- Warming baths with REN rose oil

Check out all 10 hotels here and come down if you fancy warming up in deepest darkest February!

Apple Day

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Apples aren’t the the most glamorous of fruits compared to the papaya or lycee. Is this because it’s a boring fruit, or simply because the supermarkets only sell a fraction of the hundreds of varieties that are out there? Thank heavens for Apple Day, which is every year shines a light on this taken-for-granted fruit and celebrates local varieties. In Rye apples took centre stage for during the farmers market this week – from bobbings to apple pie-making competitions and juice tastings. Sadly the great British weather was a bit of a dampener, but the hard-core fans (sorry for the pun!) turned out to support the Pippin and Cox. Check out the pictures.

Bobbing Boy - don't fall in!

We’ve just come out the other side of our first fashion sale. No photos of the event once it started – a frenzy, clothes everywhere! No not really, it was rather civilised and we even had Amanda Holden along to open the sale which was good fun. Bargains to be had an better than an afternoon rummaging around in TK Maxx.
