Terry and I were fortunate to celebrate the 40th birthday of a friend recently at Whitefields Cottage, Fountain's Abbey. It's simple accommodation based in a 19th century farm cottage on the Studley Royal estate in North Yorkshire.
We loved the morning walks amongst the deer, the evening drinks around the campfire with friends, and the relaxed, comfortable space inside for late afternoon backgammon, or late night, slightly drunken, twister.
We would love to recreate this over a weekend where close friends and family can help to create a simple, home-spun, home-made celebration with us. Hopefully, all mucking in to decorate the cottage with flowers and bunting, making food and all really feeling a part of the party!
