The Royal wedding will soon be upon us – let’s hope the wonderful weather continues for the day and that after the wedding the press displays great restraint and allows the young couple some peace and privacy.
Meanwhile, here in Parwich the day is being celebrated in style, although, Friday being changeover day it will be business as usual for us all here at Orchard Farm. We will do our best though! We will have our television on permanently and guests leaving and arriving on Friday are most welcome to arrive as early as they like/leave as late and watch the celebrations on our relatively small TV screen. Poor Janet and Georgie will be busy cleaning most of the day but no doubt they will have their respective tellies on upstairs and down in the two barns so won’t miss all the action and as always we’ll keep them and any guests well plied with coffee and cakes.
Our guests however may be more attracted by what the village can offer, and to see the wedding on a big screen. I have checked with the organisers who say they would be delighted to welcome any of our guests to join in as much as possible (although they would need to know in advance about barbecue numbers…).

What a difference from last week when our guests were battling through snow to get here and to get out again. Today the sun has been shining and and it had a bit of a feeling of spring. Can’t wait for spring to get out in the garden and start work in the new greenhouse. […]
Happy New Year to everyone and looking forward to welcoming past and new guests in 2018. It may be cold and miserable outside so just the right time to recover from the Christmas festivities in a warm and cosy barn. Short breaks are available throughout the year and the cost of a stay is at […]
