We visited Roughley Manor just after Christmas, a surprise birthday present from my husband, after I had mentioned I would love to see it at that time of year. We were not disappointed. It was just beautiful- like being in a winter wonderland!
This time we stayed in the house, in the Campbell Suite and had a superb bedroom, lounge and bathroom all to ourselves. Jan and Gary were away, but we were looked after superbly by Caren and Kathy. The breakfasts are always very special, set in an amazing dining room and the tea and cookies were as mouthwatering as ever!
A bonus to this visit was that we saw one of the horned owls - we had missed them last time.
We, of course, visited the beautiful Joshua Tree National Park, just a few miles away. To come back to Roughley, after a day's walking, was like returning home. It is truly an oasis and a haven.
We hope to return on our next visit.
