Setting up dinner for our guest this evening with candles around the fire pit. The new rose has really started to come into its own, climbing up the wall and guests are delighted with this private little sanctuary they can call their own.
The new outside area we developed in early Spring is now really starting to come into its own with the flowers establishing themselves in the new containers, creating a wonderful haven for bees where the honey is so local, it is made by our next door neighbours! Guests delight in meeting ‘The Girls’ and enjoy their fresh eggs for breakfast. The chicks that we hatched in February are now fully integrated with the main flock and they should start to lay eggs any day now. They will be small at first but just as delicious!
Our delicious breakfast hamper is packed full of goodies including fresh coffee, a choice of juices, fresh bread and pastries, creamy yoghurt and fresh fruit. A perfect way to start the day and now that the weather is getting warmer, enjoy breakfast outside in your own private guest area.
Our wonderful guests from Manchester really enjoyed our new guest areas in the lovely Spring sunshine and even when the sun went down and the evening turned chilly. They lit the firepit and opened another bottle of wine…
This area is going to be so popular this summer and the barbecue has already been lit.
Very excited to be fully reopening today, 12th April, after a long lockdown and a difficult year last year. Opened the curtains this morning to find huge snow flakes coming down and settling everywhere but we are excited to be meeting our guests from Manchester who are here for the week and have ordered our delicious ‘loaded Brunning burger’ and locally cured gammon for supper tonight. Later in the week, our new barbecue stands ready together with the firepit in our new outside guest area and we are looking forward to showing them our hard work. Now, we wait for the sun to come out…
We are working hard this Spring creating a brand new outside area for our guests. It doesn’t look much now but watch this space! Complete with dining table and chairs, firepit and barbecue, it is going to be a great space for this Spring and Summer. We just need the sun to keep on shining….!
The newest members of our family hatched on Mother’s Day with the little yellow chick hatching 2 days later. Only 18 weeks until they start laying delicious, fresh eggs for breakfast.
There is definitely a buzz in the air now that Spring has arrived and we are looking forward to welcoming guests back soon to discover this quintessentially English part of the country. Sussex is full of beautiful walks, great places to eat and we are not far from the coast too. Our accommodation is completely self-contained with your own access and we are working hard to enlarge our outside guest areas. We will keep you updated.
Guests have been enjoying home cooked breakfasts and suppers outside, making the most of our Indian summer.
We were so busy into the new year but finally had a couple of free weeks to totally refurbish and upgrade The Nest at Plaistow B&B. The room has been decorated in soft, relaxing colours with warm woollen curtains, large, plump cushions and our huge, relaxing armchair has been recovered. Our king-size bed has new, crisp white linen and the flatscreen television now sits on an old, well travelled Travellers Trunk that could certainly tell a tale or two. The bathroom has also had a makeover and is looking wonderfully fresh and clean. Come and see for yourself…
