A few things are changing here at the garden house!
See you soon!
Our refurbishment of bedrooms is now complete and we are looking forwards to welcoming visitors!
The garden is looking beautiful, with Rhodedendrons in full flower and the trees that special, brilliant shade of green. May and June really are the best time of year.
Having completed our ten bedrooms, our public spaces are now being redecorated and lighting improved, before we commence work on the dining room and new kitchen facilities. Yes, you heard that correctly: we aim to be serving full English breafasts to guests in the near future.
See you soon!
Oue refurbishment is going well! More bedrooms are now complete and we are upgrading our beds to Hypnos - the same brand that the queen sleeps on! The outside of the building is also getting a make-over too.
Several years ago, an ancient Cedar tree fell over in high winds. Rather than waste the timber, a mobile saw-bench was bought in and the tree was sawn up into naturally shaped planks, to make into cladding. Now these planks have fully dried, they are being fitted to the exterior of the building, to help it blend in more naturally to the garden.
The four refurbished bedrooms rooms are all now in use and the electronic locks are working well. Work continues on the remaining rooms.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Plans for refurbishment of the Garden House are moving ahead as planned. There is no disturbance for our customers.
This is the first of the updated rooms. Others are in progress and should be complete by May 2020.
All bedrooms will soon have full electronic door locks, allowing guests to access rooms with swipe cards or their phones.
Ryan Blackman took over the Garden House in September.
As you might imagine, there is a lot more than meets the eye to running a small guesthouse. With a background in hospitality and fine dining, Ryan has significant plans for the Garden House. Starting out with gradual refurbishment of the bedrooms, they include the fitting of a proper kitchen and serving full breakfasts and other meals from Spring 2020, ultimately the opening up of the premises for non-wedding guests and travellers.
Watch this space…
