Our first 3 stops were to look at accommodation in the form of camp sites and chalets, and also a barn conversion for the possible Dinner Dance
The camp site was fab! They have done the sort of thing we are needing before, and can accommodate a LOT of people and tents.
Next was the barn conversion - Oh dear! Very basic! Not to the standard we were expecting or wanted and an instant No!
Then onto the chalet/cottages. The people who ran this place were fantastic, and handed over the keys for an empty unit, and just left us to our own devices to explore and establish how appropriate it would be.
Superb - not yet midday, and we have the camp site and chalets sorted already!
We had a very productive meeting at our favoured venue, and were able to talk menu's and seating arrangements. Now it was a case of going back to the committee and offering them a proposal for the evening and weekend as we saw it.
I finally dropped Sally-Ann home just before 5pm, and despite the long day of meetings and driving, we were very happy with the outcome, and very excited with what we had arrived at.... fingers crossed that it would be approved of.....
More cryptic posts to come no doubt...

Unfortunately, I didn't keep the series linked episode this little pie was on, and had to do the pie filling from memory. Thankfully, there was not a large amount of ingredients to remember.

As we walked through the gatehouse, we were welcomed by the most gorgeous gardens, with manicured lawns and shrubs creating a tranquil area prior to arriving at the main building.
