We recently returned from a long weekend at Scaldbeck House to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday, there were 18 of us and what a wonderful weekend we all had. As soon as you turn into the driveway and see this stunning house it takes your breath away and when you open the door and get inside its just WOW!!!
All the bedrooms are beautiful with amazing views from every window, extremely comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. The two kitchens are extremely well equipped and for 18 of us we made good use of both of them at times, the main lounge is wonderful, again with beautiful views and as the weather was fairly cold we made use of the log fire on two evenings which added to the homely feel of this amazing house, the dining room had ample room to seat all of us. We also had the annexe which provided another lovely bedroom and the games room was a great hit with the men who spent a good time playing table tennis.
We had Robbie Spencer Ashworth cook a meal for us on the Saturday and he provided us with a delicious meal that was enjoyed by everyone and we also had Robert to wait on us which was a definite bonus as we had canapés in the lounge before our main meal.
My family are already discussing when we can return to Scaldbeck and we had some very sad faces when it was time to leave. I would like to extend my thanks to James and Vicky for letting us borrow their magnificent house and also to thank them for the lovely lemon drizzle cake which was much appreciated. We will return!
Many thanks from Hazel and Bob Hudson and family
