Summer has arrived at last and most people enjoyed their breakfast outside on the patio today! If we could always enjoy weather like this we wouldn't need to go abroad for the sunshine. The garden is a mass of colour and our hanging baskets are stunning this year thanks to Debbie of Blooming Lovely Hanging Baskets www.bloominglovelyhangingingbaskets.co.uk.
There is so much to do in the New Forest and the sea is only a 20 minute drive away. If you bring your bikes we can store them overnight in our secure covered bike shed as well as provide you with maps of the New Forest cycling paths. The hotel location is superb as you only step outside the front door, cross the road and you are in 90,000 acres of open heathland where you can walk for miles, picnic and see the new forest ponies grazing freely.
The Cloud Hotel caters for all ages other than small children and I would like to make it clear that in spite of the occasional Tripadvisor comment regarding it is a place for the over 65's I can assure you we have many young people who stay and love the relaxing and friendly atmosphere of the Cloud Hotel.
One has to remember when reading these reviews that about 1% of the people who stay at the Cloud put a review on Tripadvisor but many write glowing reviews in our visitors book.
The Hampshire Food Festival a celebration of local food and farming takes place from 1st July-4th August. There are 75 events taking place in Hampshire and a full programme is available either at the hotel or on line at www.hampshirefare.co.uk. The Cloud Hotel is holding a charity cream tea on Sunday July 14th and all proceeds will be shared by the Variety Club Children's charity and Jacks Place at Naomi House children's hospice. We hope to raise alot of money for these two worthy charities.
For anyone wanting a quiet relaxing holiday August is a good month to visit the Cloud Hotel because we don't accommodate children under 12 years. Our special offer of stay 3 nights and get the 4th night free is normally only available during the week but in August we are extending the offer so you can come at any time and still get your free night.
Hopefully this glorious weather will continue throughout August and I look forward to having the pleasure of your company. For more details please call 01590 622165 and one of my receptionists will be only too happy to answer any queries you may have.
