This was a joint 70th birthday celebration for my wife and I. Shared with all my children and grandchildren. It really could not have been better. We were blessed with good weather which helped. The wonderful Kate Hunt provided canapes on the lawn and a fabulous meal to follow on the Saturday night. But best of all was the space and warmth which the house and cottage provided to share a special time. This house needs people to hug and gives it back in spades. We really didn’t want to go home.
