Interazione con gli ospiti
We give advice on where to go,(some how to get in free),local walks etc, what the local pubs & restaurants offer in terms of food, at what prices, to suit all budgets , maps & leaflets to lots of places of interest, walks & attractions & offer directions.This house is also large enough for guests who want privacy, as we have a separate sitting room & bedroom with en- suite in a different part of the house, even has its own staircase! With the river, views & summerhouse , most people find it very relaxing here. The summerhouse, has heating and light, so writers, ( both music and literary) and readers, find inspiration down there by the river, with views, even in the winter months.

No smoking in the house, garden fine. Pets allowed, but dogs must be cat friendly.All damages to be made good. Enjoy yourself and relax!!
We have lived here for nearly 20 years and have enjoyed living in what used to be an old pub and still has many of those features. Main interest is theatre both on and off stage and heavily involved in what what goes on in the area. Enthusiastic cook and enjoys entertaining, always looking to have fun. Well that's Clive, probably time I added me!! I ran Lamberhurst Open Gardens, on July 6th. We raised nearly a thousand pounds for the church stone repair fund. I run a monthly Quiz, fiendish but fun & a cribbage evening. The stage is not for me, tried once never again!!! Couldn't even manage , being in the chorus for a British Legion show. But how would the thespians manage without us back stagers!! Learning to grow orchids. Also enjoying collecting Olympic coins, along with other types. I love reading. As you know we love entertaining, we love our wine & hold a yearly wine evening. So I am the one down by the river, wine & book in hand, enjoying Clive's food!!
