Bossiney House Hotel

Last Friday 12th September saw 6 WETS and their Ladies leave Bromsgrove for their weekend trip to Tintagel. After a very pleasant journey in gorgeous sunshine with refreshment stops at Sedgemoor Services and the Eliot Arms at Tregidillet, the party eventually arrived at the Bossiney House Hotel.

The Hotel offered us a very warm welcome. The Brethren then escaped to change whilst the Ladies enjoyed afternoon Tea on the Lawn.

The visit to King Arthur Lodge was, as always superb, especially given that this meeting was held in the Great Hall, (Think Birmingham University and then add History.

The Ladies enjoyed an excellent meal in the Cedar Tree Restaurant which is part of the Hotel and the Brethren returned to join them for refreshments.

Saturday morning saw the group travel to King Arthur’s Hall, owned and run by the Lodge, to be entertained to the Light and Sound Show in the small Temple followed by a tour of the Great Hall. Everyone agreed that it was a wonderful experience.

After coffee the group travelled to Doc Martin country for a visit to Port Isaac.

Later, following some very dodgy navigation by a former member of the RAF we were entertained at W. Bro. Vaughan Williams country estate to tea and cakes and then back to the Hotel to prepare for the evening meal where we were joined by Vaughan, David, Tricia and Brenda Williams who had acted as our hosts during the trip.

Both nights saw our Lodge WM come up with a quiz which everyone joined in.

Sunday morning after a substantial breakfast and the collection of our Cornish Pasties, courtesy of David Williams, we set off to return to Bromsgrove, arriving mid- afternoon.

Once again it was an excellent weekend and we look forward to our next sojourn to Portsmouth on 21st October.
