For years I watched the series Country House Party on TV, and of course, I am a Downton Abbey tragic. Even Poirot and Ms Marples seem to attend back to back Country House Parties.
The atmosphere at The Woodbridge is always lovely. There is a ‘feel’ to The Woodbridge, and our staff are low-key, letting Woodbridge work her magic.
And then, if you can imagine that bumped up a level, that is what happens when guest arrivals congregate around certain dates.
When this happens, such as when guests are coming for Easter, there is a concentration of people in at the same time. This creates a different dynamic.
Guests get to know each other. They compare notes on their outings and make recommendations to each other. Sometimes they plan outings together.
It is nice to see the same faces at breakfast. Guests then often catch up again for sundowner drinks under the almond trees. At dinner they may ask to put their tables together. And everyone gets together for Port and sherry in front of the Ballroom log fire.
Suddenly, guests are no longer strangers and you have a Country House Party. Wonderful!
