Well Done Monet's Garden

On a glittering and at times emotional night at the 2016 Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) Awards, the evening’s most prestigious title, RoR Horse of the Year, was awarded to the popular grey Monet’s Garden.

Held at The Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket and hosted by RoR Patron Clare Balding and Luke Harvey, eleven awards were given on the night.

The awards celebrate the versatility and adaptability of former racehorses with trophies and total prize money of £17,500 going to the year’s elite champions in dressage, endurance, eventing, polo, showing and showjumping.

This year there were also special recognition awards to mark the achievements of Rio 2016 star, Summon Up The Blood, and the members of the Great Britain Horseball team who had competed at the 2016 Horseball World Cup on former racehorses. Trainer Nicky Henderson was also present to see an award given to Jack The Giant, the horse he formerly trained and which since retiring from racing has become a champion in the show-ring.On a glittering and at times emotional night at the 2016 Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) Awards, the evening’s most prestigious title, RoR Horse of the Year, was awarded to the popular grey Monet’s Garden.

Featured in the "Cumbria Life" Magazine

Stafford House and it's interior were lucky enough to feature in the August 2015 edition of the "Cumbria Life" magazine, along with a little peek at the Gardens.  

 

So we were both surprised and delighted when we were asked if this time they could focus more on the Gardens at Stafford House - so of course "yes" was the answer!

 

Please feel free to check out the "Homes & Gardens" section on page 90 titled "Refined Palette"

 

At Last, the A591 from Keswick to Grasmere Re-opened today - Wednesday 11th May 2016!

At last the storm-damaged road that has been closed since ferocious storms hit Cumbria, starting with "Storm Desmond" on 5th December 2015 has re-opened today. 

 

The original plan was for it to re-open at the end of May, then was re-scheduled for Friday 13th May. 

 

A Champagne reception, vintage vehicles and potential celebrity guests will celebrate the re-opening of the A591 Route through the heart of the Lake District on Friday 20th from 12 noon to 2pm.  This was put in place to help get the message accross that Cumbria is now fully open and ready to welcome our visitors.
