What a beautiful week-end Posted March 9, 2014


What a beautiful weekend with dawn to dusk sunshine, daffodils and crocus in full bloom and lambs playing in the warm sun. The New Forest ponies, Shetlands, horses, deer, cows, pigs and sheep basking in the sunshine at the end of a very long and wet winter.  Amongst our guests this weekend were three cyclists, two of whom arrived on their bicycles from Brockenhurst Station (Ashurst is nearer), two families and a couple here to enjoy the New Forest and two couples off on a cruise and leaving their cars with us. The Sir John Barleycorn (opposite Twin Oaks) had a live band on Friday night and a vintage car meet on Sunday – with brightly painted sports cars with polished chrome glistening in the warm sunshine.
