When our visitors come to stay we want them to feel the magic of Brinsop and to that end we are constantly upgrading and improving the facilities in the houses and the grounds around. Only this week we have put a new big comfy sofa into Ivy Cottage for romantic cuddle ups! Romance is on our minds as more and more couples are coming to check us out for intimate and exclusive wedding hire and of course spring is such a romantic time with lots of daffodils coming up and pairs of ducks waddling around looking loved up!

We recently installed a hot tab at Dansey and the chilly weather hasn’t deterred willing entrants. Guests with aches and pains have told us that it has some sort of restorative power and they can’t keep away from it, which naturally we are delighted about! There is a hot tub in Ivy Cottage too!

We have just uncovered a lovely old well, full of fresh water and our plan is to restore it and make a gorgeous and charming wishing well for our guests to discover. There are so many beautiful things growing in the gardens and amongst the jungle that was the kitchen garden Will has found stunning and gigantic hornbeams. They are quite magnificent.

Jonathan is very busy planting bluebells and beech trees and has created a walk through the kitchen garden woodland that we are hoping to develop further as a special place by the reinstatement of red squirrels – so exciting.

In other news we have lambs gambolling in the fields and a pair of romantic swans on the moat. Oh, and did you see the comment we got on Facebook last month from a very delighted guest?

“Wow wow wow – thank you a fabulous weekend at Bailey house. I LOVE the interior decor and the lake and grounds – and the unusual but hugely appreciated approach of ‘roam around the estate – it’s yours to enjoy’. We have stayed in about 12 similar sized holiday homes over the last 5 years and this was simply the best (without question).

Ps Martin’s guided tour of the other houses and function area was the icing on the cake.

I am very sure we will be booking again !!!!”
