Another fantastic few days spent at The Eltermere Inn, and we were blessed with the weather as well- crisp sunshine, frost and fog. The perfect base to explore the wonderful photography opportunities in the valley on foot, and I managed to get back in time for a perfect breakfast as well! Thanks again Mark, Ruth, Amy and the rest of the team.
This is just a brief note, on behalf of every member of the Dumbleton 8, to thank you and your colleagues for looking after us so well last weekend. This was our eighteenth annual reunion, and there was a general consensus that this was one of the best overall and that the food which you served was absolutely the best so far. We were well impressed. In addition, with the weather outside being so unwelcoming at times, we really appreciated being in a hotel with so many public rooms where we could entertain ourselves indoors. Finally, your staff are wonderful. Miraculously, they were always on hand when we wanted something, but without being omni-present. They also navigated the uncertain waters of serving a (sometimes very merry) group of eight with total professionalism. Please pass on our thanks to everyone concerned.
You won't want to hear this, but the sun finally appeared as Barbara and I drove away from the Lake District yesterday morning. Everyone arrived home safely. Our next gathering is now less than a year away. We shall be very fortunate if we find another hotel as good as yours.
Neil and Barbara
