So many times I’ve had such good intentions to keep my blog up-to-date and inform you of the regular news on the farm or of events happening close by. However, time is always precious and setting up a new venture bed and breakfast as well as working full time has made time a premium but now we finally have our three bed and breakfast rooms ready so I can restart the blog!
Yesterday, I visited Great Witley Court in order to meet a lady called Gill who runs The Garden Tea Rooms at Witley Court and Church. I met Gill via a lady on Twitter called @LucyThorpe who put us in contact as Witley Court is only 8 miles from Huntlands Farm.
What a fabulous place Witley Court is; I must confess I’ve never been there before, only driven past it a couple of times as a child but it is well worth a visit. So much so, I’m planning a visit to Witley Court as well as the breathtaking Parish Church which is right next to the Court and open to the public for free. Spectacular ruins, stunning fountains, restored gardens and woodland walks make for a great day out.
Whilst I was there, I had a lovely cup of coffee and a slice of Victoria Sponge at Gill’s Tea Room and thoroughly enjoyed the whole atmosphere of the Tea Room; it was so welcoming and cosy on such a fresh, autumn day. I’m hoping Gill will be able to visit Huntlands Farm next week so a friendship that started via Twitter can continue in person. To keep up-to-date with Gill’s Tea Room adventures her blog is well worth a read – it will have you in stitches of laughter at times!
