Thank goodness for the generator - as we were only reconnected to the electricity supply on Tuesday, it could have been a very long and cold weekend otherwise! Anyway, everything is back in working order and we are looking forward to meeting all those guests that have already booked for this year, and hopefully those of you who will book in due course!
News and Events from Churton Heath Farm
Find out what life is like on a modern working farm! - here's where you can read news and jottings from all of us at Churton Heath Farm.
Thank goodness that we have guests this weekend!! Due to the tremendous gales that we suffered in this area on Thursday, we have been without power since Thursday lunchtime!! With no inkling as to when the electricity company (mentioning of course no names), might come and put back the power cable that is lying flat on the ground in the middle of the field!, we put a call into a good friend that works for HSS Tool Hire and a Generator was delivered here on Friday, which means that the house was nice and warm and cosy for the arrival of our Bed and Breakfast Guests. Had we not had B&B guests this weekend, we might be looking forward to yet another candlelit night, playing monoply and cold baths!! Thanks for coming to Churton Heath Farm everyone!!
We were nominated by a friend in the Countryside Alliance Best Diversification Category of the 2006 Best Rural Retailer competion in the area (North Wales and Cheshire), and we have won!!
We now have a chance of winning the overall national title and are in competition with fellow Best Diversification category winners from across the UK. There were over 2,000 nominations this year, and only thirteen winners in our category! The overall winner of the category will be announced at a winner's reception at the House of Lords on 7th February - how exciting, a trip to London for Jim and I!!
We had our Gradings inspector visit on Tuesday, and we have been awarded Visit Britain 4 Stars, with a Silver Award, so we are very pleased that all our hard work has paid off. Yet again we have been blessed with lovely visitors, and we have really enjoyed our first few months of opening. We very much look forward to welcoming you all to Churton Heath Farm Bed and Breakfast!
The winter is now approaching, and the leaves are falling fast off the trees. We are only been open a short space of time, but we seem to have had quite a number of visitors, and they all seem to have enjoyed themselves. I think the Grosvenor Arms at Aldford has been a real hit with most! People are already booking for next year, which is great. So far so good........
