July at Culmhead

We have at last seen some better weather and our grounds and gardens are looking much more as they should at this time of year.
We have had some lovely people staying here over the last few months and have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming them to this lovely part of Somerset.

Lots of people involved on Somerset Cricket have stayed here as well as families from Australia, France and USA 

The wedding and party season has also got under way and we have lots of bookings throughout the summer.

Spring is finally here at last

At long last it has stopped raining and we are now under way with all our guests arriving from all over the world.
The gardens are starting to dry and leaves are appearing on most of the trees.

Had a lovely French family here last might who loved the animals and their children spent a lot of time out in the grounds exploring and seeing our pigs.

We have some equestrian guests coming to Mark Broadbents and a big cross country event being held nearby.
The next weeks are busy and if the weather holds up it should great fun for all going to these events.

Do get in touch if you are planning a trip to Somerset or simply passing through.

Our doors are always open.....

March 2013

March already.

A few enjoyable days skiing under blue skies in the lovely Cranz Montana, Switzerland .
We left early on Thursday from Bristol and flew to Geneva without a hitch! EJ even provided us with allocated seats . Makes it less of a scrum when boarding the plane.
Caught the train from the airport to nearby our resort.
Such an easy journey .
In the bar shortly after 5.0 pm

Two days of skiing under blue skies was an additional treat. The pistes and lift infra structure are easy and a pleasure to use.
Excellent en piste bars and restaurants provide all you could hope for when you need a well earned break .
The Eldorado hotel was our choice of residence . We highly recommend this smart friendly family run hotel only a few minutes walk from the centre and access to the lifts is good.
The proprietors could not have done any more to make our short stay very comfortable and memorable .

Just landing back in Bristol, told the ipad should be turned off for landing.

Back to reality .....

The first week of March and we are fully booked again . Lots to do as the central heating is playing up again. That's a Monday job !

Lets hope the dry weather lasts a little longer and the temperatures start to pick up.

Do call if you are planning a trip in the south west in the weeks ahead.

 What a wet miserable start to the year we have had in this part of Somerset. Floods, snow and then more and more rain!

Today we have a blue sky and it has not rained so far and it is now 13.51 ...........the ground is drying out and the first signs of spring are upon us.

Our bookings have been slow as nobody wants to travel in these weather conditions we have had, however we have received a flurry of confirmed bookings for the weeks and months if you are feeling brave come on down to good old Somerset for a weekend break. We cannot control the weather but guarantee a warm welcome to all travellers visiting Culmhead House.

Hope to see you soon.
