We have just finished a very thorough deep clean of the glampsite and zipped up our tents for the final time. What a year it’s been for everyone. Perhaps more than any other season, Penhein really has provided an escape – a solace away from Zoom meetings and home-schooling and endless breaking news. It’s been a place for everyone to slow down and enjoy the simple things amongst nature. And haven’t we all realised just how important that is? With that in mind we’re now focussed on 2021 and already looking forward to opening next spring.
Whilst this year has definitely had its challenges, the feedback we have had from our guests has kept our spirits up. We’ve loved hearing how safe people felt staying with us, able to properly relax and soak in the therapeutic benefits of walking in the woodlands and gazing up at the stars. Equally in a year distinctly lacking in fun, it’s been wonderful to enable our guests to laugh and spend time with family and friends in a socially-distanced and safe way. It made us smile hearing the sounds of children playing in the glampsite drift up to our house along with the smell of smoke from the campfires.
Within our own family we’ve found a renewed appreciation for our surroundings. Our puppy, Freddie is now 10 months’ old and even bigger than his father, Zande. Both dogs are much-loved by our boys and require lots of walking. We are so lucky to have all this beauty, space and fresh air on our doorstep and most of all, we love that we can share that sense of freedom with our guests who come to stay at Penhein. We will continue to share pictures via our Instagram @penheinglamping until we meet again next spring.
