We purchased Widbrook House and farm in May 2008. The old farmhouse was derelict and in need of serious love and care. With trowel in hand, this was bestowed on the building and it is now our family home.
Since we last updated our website we have made progress towards our objective, not least of all we got our long awaited planning consent. This took much longer than we expected and so our opening date is revised. we hope with a good wind behind us to have our catering kitchen, dining room and associated facilities ready for our first marquee wedding in july.
Some hard and soft landscaping will be completed so as to look nice for our wedding guests through the summer months. Realistically we hope to have four of our bedrooms ready for late autumn 2013 and the next thress by spring 2014. We are looking foward to having our first guests in summer 2014.
A range of old stone barns are planned to provide high quality self-contained Bed and breakfast accommodation. Serving visitors with a unique Dick and Jane level of hospitality, with particular appeal to walkers, cyclists and canoeists who use the Kennet and Avon Canal and Route 4 of the National Cycle Network, as well as those wishing to stay in Bradford on Avon which is well placed for exploring Wiltshire, Bath and the surrounding areas.
Work is underway on the Kitchen Garden. Our Orchards and fruit gardens our becoming ever more lush with the seasons. These, along with our very happy organic and free-range hens and ducks, will provide home grown produce for the kitchen and a " Breakfast worth getting up for".
