Birthday Celebrations at the Oast

The terrible dilemma crops up every decade I guess...what to do to celebrate your big milestone. 

I went round the houses, working on ideas on what to do for my fortieth.....much of the ideas felt samey and many felt too stressful. The penny finally dropped....have a girlie sleepover at the Oast. 

It was such a good night. By offering a bed for the night, friends from away managed to get here ...Selina from Devon and Tach from Lincolnshire are definitely worth a mention. And even friends from down the road took up the offer to sleep over ...what a treat to have fun until late and then walk a few yards to bed. And how nice to have a break from tending to the kiddies in the morning, but instead have a girlie natter over a coffee and croissant, in complete calm. 

The oast is brilliant for entertaining. Night-time lighting is stunning inside and outside. The main living space is huge (several said the website does not get close in depicting how big it really is......we need a wide angle lens for sure!). As is typical though we all gathered in the kitchen to start the evening.......

Even as host I felt so relaxed on my birthday. I think it helped by having the food prepared in advance and then Jayne and Sal stepping in and throwing me out of the kitchen at 5pm. Perfect!

Having the wow-factor of a stunning property all to ourselves, where we could have fun as a group... is a complete luxury. We loved the freedom of it all.....no fighting for a bar (Ruth did some great cocktails, on tap!), no noise except our own, no squeezing past strangers, no closing time, no need for a taxi.....

....we must do it again some time.  Indeed, the oast is going to be hosting several big birthdays this year...there's already 40ths, 50ths and 60ths booked up....
