Dear Recipient
Tuesday 1st July 2008

Bright sunny days, long warm evenings - the fruits of summer are last ripe and ready to savour. There is no better way to do so than to venture into the great outdoors and engage in some countryside pursuits. Whatever your outdoor passion - be it fly fishing, golf, archery, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, walking, etc. (the list goes on and on) you can find a Best Loved hotel which will make sure you stay active this summer.

And for those of us into great food and wine (and who isn't!?), I'd like to take a moment to congratulate our good friends at Rye Lodge on their 15th anniversary. Owner/professional bon-viveur Kerry de Courcy and his family have over the years made Rye Lodge a beacon of hospitality and good living with exemplary cuisine, personalised service and fun atmosphere. A great place to feel pampered and indulged, Champagne style.

I'd also like to welcome a new hotel to Best Loved, Castle House Hotel in Hereford (featured below). Castle House is an elegant Grade II-listed mansion with a beautiful terrace leading to the Castle Pool. The attention to detail, well-polished service and the superb three AA rosette-awarded cuisine make for a delightful getaway.
