Gin Experience Evening

Wow, on Saturday night Belle Grove guests tried at least 9 different gins (lost count by the end) from all over the world.  While we enjoyed all,  smooth classic Sipsmith and Japanese Roku were voted favourites. A chilli-infused gin – appropriately from Chile  – was interesting too!

In case you’re wondering, we lay on these complementary events in the main house in lieu of off-season discounts.

Visit England Award

Pleased to announce that, once again, Belle Grove has been awarded a 5* Gold rating!

The Upper Barn also now qualifies for a One Step Ahead Award. This means catering for those who are a little less mobile on account of its manageable facilities, not least the ground floor bedroom and en suite walk-in shower.  If you wish to book because of this accessibility, please ensure you indicate your need on the booking form so we liaise with you as to specifics.

Complimentary ‘Gintastic’ Evening 2020!

In what has become a popular annual event, all those who book a short break at Belle Grove over the first weekend of February – this year it’s  31st January –  3rd February 2019  are invited to a special complimentary Gin Tasting Experience in the on-site Dragon House on Saturday 1st  February 7pm.  It’s all about sampling a series of  unfamiliar gins with accompanying tonics and nibbles, then selecting our favourite.

This year’s Tasting covers gins from Japan, Germany, Scotland and the US as well dear old England of course! These are just a few  of the contenders plus a few images from last year…..

Thanksgiving Dinner

We had fun setting up a guest’s Thanksgiving Dinner last week, so here are a few images (turkey and pumpkin pie followed) !

 

Witches & Ghouls

Halloween usually coincides with Half Term so that’s our excuse for going overboard with the spooks…….

Capturing Summer

A guest wrote this  while staying here with friends during the lazy hazy days of last summer…

” through infinite blue

a thousand bird songs swirl

luscious lazy June

a bee sucks pollen

buzzes hastily onward

I sit easy by my friend

papers flap their news

blooms of summer are sweeter

wine, cool in the mouth

wind stirs in the high ash”
