Thursday 25th May was a balmy Spring evening, the wisteria produced its most spectacular display of mauve blooms, the birds performed their dusk chorus as the doors of Eastfield Lodge were thrown open.
Our old office, now transformed into the Snug Bar, was very quickly filled with local and familiar faces. Retailers, suppliers, neighbours and friends were invited to wander round the rooms and discover the new look guesthouse.
Having witnessed builders’ lorries and trailers, scaffolding, skips and debris in the car park since the end of November 2022, it was just fabulous to show off the results of these months of renovation work.
Henry and I loved the buzz of positivity and excitement which filled the house with 50 people with drinks and homemade canapes in hand socialising in every room, into the kitchen and overflowing into the garden in the evening sun. The feedback was overwhelmingly complimentary regarding both the style and quality throughout.
With little availability left this year, with the success of this fun Open Evening filled with laughter, banter and chat and Summer knocking on the door, it really feels as though we are stepping into a new era for the business with a busy, full and prosperous season ahead for us at the Lodge.
