We found ourselves in a winter wonderland over December, when a fresh snowfall showed off the Park in a light we only see once or twice a year – but it’s always welcome when it comes.
2016 was an eventful year for many, and we were pleased to be able to offer our guests a calm place to stay whenever they wanted to get away from it all or to enjoy a quiet celebration.
We look forward to seeing you all again in your homes away from home for your next break!
