Is that an oxymoron?
Mum and Sylvia having another hurrah for their 60th before 2019 is over but this time – in a quiet contemplative stay at Soho Farmhouse.
And lucky me got to go along …
I remember this place from when we were there in January,
but the last time we didn’t get to see The Piglets!
What a funny name! This is where Sylvia stayed.
We stayed in the Garden House rooms …
Our room this time is very different to our cabin in January.
And there was a bathtub! We’re missing a bathtub at home so every time there’s one in a hotel room, she intends to enjoy it!
The view in the back …
They had a “little” bed for me – LOL!
And some home-made treats of carob and cinnamon..
And while Mum was running the bath,
we made a fire and listened to classical music.
I couldn’t go with Mum to dinner so I guess I got to enjoy the fire till it died down.
After they had finished dinner, Mum came to get me for a last walk.
The next morning, the “Milkman” had delivered some milk for our morning coffee and tea.
We walked past the Farm House
Did my posing but was quickly interrupted …
This place caters to a hoomans of every size …
Mum took me with her to the Main Barn for breakfast.
But I had to stay in the reception area where Mum could see me.
After breakfast and before we left to go home, we took more walks …
Met Jacob – one of the horses in the stables.
Walked past the vegetable gardens
Along paved paths … yes, this is the city folk’s country side.
Walking and talking
Amidst the autumn colours
And all too soon, it was time to leave …
Back on the bus to the Gate House – and on our way back to London.
Thank you again for a lovely stay albeit very short.
May’s comment: A fab place to go to unwind. Immediately on arrival, all I want to do is go to the room and have a hot bath. We were greeted with soothing classical music.
This time I realised that there are two places where I can dine with Darcy.
The Mill Barn.
The deli is a good place to hang out.
Will always come back for time away – not too far from London and a good place to escape to.
