A new year, a new challenge(s)!

I’m never one to sit back and relax; always need a challenge and always wishing to improve things to make life that little bit more enjoyable.  So, the beginning of this year is focused on finishing our two Georgian bedrooms so guests can enjoy the incredibly spacious rooms which will be furnished with beautiful mahogany four-poster beds supplied by the lovely Anne at Grovesnor Furniture Ltd.

I really enjoy planning the interior of the bedrooms and I’m constantly on the lookout for suitable bits and pieces to make them comfortable for our guests.  I’ve just finished recovering this pretty footstool with fabric left over from making the curtains which I thought would be fun.  I hope to obtain some comfy sofas which I can reupholster so guests can easily enjoy watching TV, reading or just relaxing in their room.

One of the bedrooms has the luxury of a huge en suite bathroom with a free standing bath, twin sinks and a large shower.  However, I am finding it a challenge to replace the original bath plunger but nothing is impossible!?!

We already have a busy year planned ahead with many wedding guests booked as well as returning guests for the popular





Footstool with its new cover!





Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb held locally, events at the Malvern Three Counties Showground and we are especially excited to be hosting a marquee in the orchard for a wedding reception in May; more photos and excitement to follow.

As always, we look forward to welcoming new and returning guests to our home and please don’t forget, Stephen is more than happy to cook an evening meal for you.  Trust me, you won’t leave the table hungry!

Happy New Year!
Lucy & Stephen
