Our weekend started by a warm welcome from Matthew who was picking fresh herbs from the garden, then headed to our amazing Station House Cottage with champagne and strawberries for a surprise! The Cottage could not have been decorated more perfect, warm rich tones with each and every detail tailored to fit our cottage. Sheets to die for and an organic mattress that engulfed our bodies. We woke to acres and acres of wooded and well groomed trails to walk off our veggie omelet, with potato wedges, fresh fruit and heavenly chocolate and fruit scones!
Dinner was a show stealer! Candlelight, a bottle of wine and 16 new friends that shared a meal that was second to none! I am not sure what was our favorite, the roasted chicken soup, the rack of lamb or the country farmhouse biscuit with rhubarb and strawberry compote!
The accommodations were amazing, the food was killer, the beautifully kept ground were breathtaking, but the service was impeccably warm and welcoming!
Close to town, but yet secluded. If you go, we would recommend a Cottage. Summer was beautiful, but the pictures of Christmas time looks great too!
