Another Great Show

Last week I had the pleasure of representing Pride of Britain Hotels at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, as I have done for the last couple of years. As always, it was a wonderful week. The long days and tiring heat were made easier with the company of the wonderful PoB members that joined me on the stand; the great co-exhibitors which became my ‘family’ for the week; and of course the wonderful public that took out time to come and chat. It’s not difficult talking to people about something I have so much belief in, and so much passion about. I am a very lucky individual indeed.

Those that know me, will appreciate how hot the show must have been in the week, for me to actually lose my jacket – the heat inside the pavilion was certainly no for the faint hearted. I made sure I had my Pride of Britain silver pin badge on my waistcoat though (as always) so normal brand awareness standards remained in place!

Next week sees me do it all over again at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. Why not come and say hello if you are visiting. We will be with our friends in the Country Living Pavillion.

Why did it take me nearly 40 years to visit!!??

I am embarrassed to say that up until mid-2016 I had never ventured north of the border into Scotland. Then a client of mine started some projects in Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen, and before I knew it I was becoming a bit of regular visitor.

I also enjoyed a holiday in September 2016 to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula (West Coast) for a week – and experienced the true beauty of Scotland. I had a fantastic time, and thought this couldn’t be beaten, that was until recently when I made a 500+mile trip to visit The Torridon hotel (Pride of Britain Hotels) in the Scottish Highlands. I was blessed with the weather for my whole trip, so I got to see the scenery at its best – but cannot believe there is a more beautiful place in the British Isles than here.

Bedroom Views don’t get much better than this…

Breath-taking views; still lochs; snow topped mountains; an abundance of wildlife; stunning sunsets – and above all, complete tranquillity. I have never been anywhere so relaxing. There was something satisfying about not being able to download emails whilst hundreds of feet up a mountain. After all, you wouldn’t want it to disturb the enjoyment of listening to the gentle trickle of water through the hills, or the occasional cuckoo.

The British Isles has some wonderful locations – but this area of Scotland, has to top it for me. Will I be back?…..without a doubt!
