Extra ‘Little Extras’ and a Hungarian Goosedown Duvet

Technological excitements may be all right for some – for those of us poised here at the very nerve centre of the barns at Orchard Farm for example – but may be of little immediate interest or benefit to anyone else.

By chance, after a long-awaited trip to London to see Ruthie and Nick we do have  some more obviously useful practical purchases to add to the list of what you can expect  when you stay here. Firstly, stung by a guest’s admittedly only semi-serious comment about the lack of a bean slicer each barn can now boast a very modern-looking model  from Divertimenti in Marylebone High Street!! It wasn’t immediately  clear how one is even meant to use it but I am assured they do what they’re meant to.

On a more serious note, we have bought each barn a set of (quite tasteful) plastic picnic-ware from John Lewis for barbecuing and  meals outside; we felt they would be much lighter to carry in and out, and less likely to break if dropped while doing so.

And finally, on an even more serious note,  we have bought a Hungarian goose down duvet for our guests in each barn. In case anyone is feeling we are going over the top, they were (very) reduced in the Duvet & Pillow Warehouse August online sale;  we have one ourselves which we bought last year and it is brilliant – wonderfully warm and light – indeed lighter than the proverbial feather so I hope they will be enjoyed. Of course, we will still have a choice for those with feather allergies or that simply prefer a synthetic duvet.

That’s all the excitements  for the moment.
