Well here we are in 2018 – it’s going to be an exciting year for us, as our groups have booked with us to take advantage of the best of the summer weather.

We have had strong interest from the crafting community, as we have a large, well lit dedicated craft room, complete with lamps, plenty of extension cords and power points, 2 cutting tables, a cutting mat & steel ruler. We also have a large pinboard where our crafters love to display their works of art. The room also houses large scrap bins, irons with filtered water supplied, (so the quilts are never ruined by those ugly brown water stains from the irons), ironing boards, a small fridge in our tea & coffee nook and all provisions for drinks throughout the days activities. We have fan cooling, but we have just installed a large reverse cycle air conditioner, as well as central heating. This keeps our groups comfortable without blowing their assorted papers and fabrics all over the room!

March has only the Easter weekend available and after this morning’s enquiry from a cycling group, April is filling fast.

The cooler months continue to book up, as we have reverse cycle air conditioners in all rooms and hydronic heating in all rooms, ensuites, corridors and common areas, making The Old Hospital an ideal cosy winter retreat.

Our north facing sunroom is always about 5 degrees warmer, as it soaks up the winter sun’s rays through our large glass windows. These are shaded by outdoor awnings and blinds on warmer days. It’s a perfect place to relax with a glass of wine and read a book, or chat with friends.

We have a quiet reflection area at the end of the corridor where guests can relax, do some hand sewing or embroidery, read, or take a call on their mobile in privacy.

Our large lounge area welcomes guests to sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding hills.

We hope to see your group at The Old Hospital in 2018.
