What a relaxing time we had. It was so quiet. The Cornmill is a home I can only dream of having but if I could have one like it, it would be like this. The bedrooms were spacious, not too ostentatious but comfortable. Ours was the four poster. Karen and Chris had thought of nearly everything you may need however, if I could have had just five things to make the break just perfect it would have been:
(A) (i) a small fridge in the room to chill the wine, (ii) keep the chocolates from melting and keep those (iii) strawberries fresh and
(B) a more comfortable chair in front of the dressing table for putting on make-up plus (C) a light on the dressing table and
(D) a mirror that didn't swing away from you everytime you looked into it. Maybe that was meant to be!!! Hell, I did look dreadful on Saturday morning with the hangover from hell. Oh and (E) it would have been nice if the fire in the guests' living room could have been lit each night.
However, aside from that, our hosts kept our wine chilled for when we did need it. Their breakfast is a real treat though. For those of you of Catholic faith, you would find the local Abbey (Ampleforth) a delightful place to take Communion on Sunday. What a treat that place is. The poshest Monks in the UK. It was like being in heaven there. And, with the tour provided by Karen (since she joined us at the service) we knew everything about each of the Brothers at the Abbey.
I digress.. there were so many restaurants to eat at and not that far to travel too in the area. We would definitely return to this delightful part of North Yorkshire. We felt like we were at home. Thanks for such a lovely stay. Hope to see you again soon.
