As the last leaves of Autumn fall, I realise that I haven't written a note to thank you for such a splendid Master Baker's outing in October. What you and your family have done at West Lodge Park and The Beale Arboretum is remarkable.
You and your staff made us feel most welcome, and we were truly impressed by your encyclopaedic knowledge of the spectacular collection of trees in your care. We were equally impressed at your skill of keeping customers at West Lodge Park happy. A couple from France pulled up to park beside us and explained that they return to West Lodge Park every year for their family reunion. The place seemed to be teeming with cheerful returners!
Another unusual and interesting aspect of the hotel is the superb collection of paintings by Mary Beale and other artists.
Lunch was utterly delicious in your lovely dining room.
Altogether a most memorable day - thank you!
