Given what we had heard, our expectations were high even before we arrived at Away in the County. They were exceeded in every way. Susan and Glen are thoughtful and attentive hosts who anticipate the needs of their guests: quaint picnic baskets provided for our use should the spirit move us, passes to Sandbanks, lovely toiletries, wine glasses and a corkscrew. Then there were all the special touches: a welcome card featuring Susan's art work, a vase of flowers from the garden, an enthusiastic and friendly greeting from Oscar, the resident basset hound. Glen's hollandaise sauce has been praised in other reviews. The praise is well deserved. It rivals any we've tasted. The muffins deserve equal recognition. And you can have as many as you want. Susan's artwork adds to the ambiance of each room and captures the essence of the countryside. In fact, each room is a work of art in itself with just the right number of decorative touches hand picked to suit the theme of the room. Many thanks to Susan and Glen for making our two day stay memorable. We'll be back for longer soon.
