Well the year is drawing to a close here in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire. We are now preparing for Christmas, which a lovely time to be here at Lea House, as the guest lounge always looks stunning, with the tree alight, and the log burner ablaze. Trust us. It looks stunning. In the meantime we have been busy during the autumn. The Forest of Dean was illuminated with a amazing display of colour and was great walking through.
After what seemed a typical British summer here in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire, a change of air gives a sense of autumn on its way. We have had a busy summer here at Lea House. Wonderful guests, enjoying what Herefordshire/Gloucestershire/Forest of Dean has to offer.There is so much to do on our doorstep. With the change in the weather, our minds are now turning to all the interior jobs we need to do. But we always make sure we find time to explore Herefordshire/Gloucestershire.
We enjoyed our recent visit to the historic market town of Ledbury, Herefordshire. The sun shone, and the photo is from inside the market house
Things have been so busy in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire that slipped my mind to update blog. So lets start at the beginning of the year.Lea House have been inspected by the AA, and we are pleased to announce that we have been upgraded to AA 4 Star Silver, and retained our AA Golden Egg award for outstanding breakfast. We are very proud, and love showcasing what Herefordshire/Gloucestershire have to offer
So much has been happening here, that time and events have passed us by. Christmas and New Year are always special in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire. And walks through the Forest of Dean on a crisp cold morning, warms the heart and soul. As well as been extremely busy welcoming guests over the festive period, we have taken the opportunity to completely renovate one of our rooms, to create a fantastic en suite bedroom. So if you have not yet discovered Herefordshire/Gloucestershire/Forest of Dean, now is the opportune time. As well as all this, we have created an ornamental pond, complete with fish. What a wonderful way to enjoy the rural tranquility, with the sound of a running waterfall. Bliss
The heat has is on in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire. Record heat has made for trying times for the garden, here at Lea House. Guests comfort has been enhanced by installing fans in all rooms. Has been a great benefit. The countryside is stunning, and we have taken a swim in the River Wye, which flows through Herefordshire. Truly blessed to live here.
Well since i last wrote, we had experienced one of the snowiest winters in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire. It made for some great photo opportunities. It was beautiful. Now as we near summer, the area has come alive with spring colour. The bluebells in the Forest of Dean were amazing.We have all our fruit and veg planted up in our garden. The plants love the rich Herefordshire/Gloucestershire soil. As the nights start getting longer, it is lovely having evening walks. Here are some of our recent walks.
