We normally tuck right in to the hotel in the winter months (they do cozy very well) but somehow, despite the cold, the gardens still looked enchanting, especially the woods beyond.
The weather vane at the peak of the stable lofts is magnificent, we stayed in one of the lofts last summer and the views over the property are beautiful.

|I recognized the ferns from the summer.|
|Lots of rosemary for the kitchen.|
I'll tell you how it goes on an occasion such as this:
ME: "We're not allowed in here, it's for hotel employees only."
MrBP: "Nah, there are no such rules! If there are I'm sure they could be interpreted a number of different ways."
