I almost feel like a traitor having stayed here for decades. But some petty rules have arrived. Apparently making up your own packed lunch on the kitchen table is now not allowed. Cake I had taken for my friends was frowed on and removed because the host may be liable if a guest became ill from eating it!. The tradditional Stlton left one night failed to appear the next and was substituted by rubber Brie straight from the fridge. Those staying in the lodge found it smelt of dog and the cleaning had left dog hairs on the bedding. Clothing smelt of dog when they returned home.
This was a most dissapointing visit. I doubt that we will be welcomed back.
