Our second quarterly newsletter

Maples updates

Welcome to our second quarterly Maples newsletter!

We received such a lovely response to our first newsletter that we’ve decided to send out some further updates about events that are happening locally to The Maples along with other information that we hope you’ll find useful.

Last time, we told you about how Elizabeth was up to her elbows in oranges, producing batches of marmalade. Well, we’re extremely proud to say that her efforts have been rewarded, not only by complements from our clientele, but also by receiving a Merit Award from ‘The World’s Original Marmalade Awards’!

We’ve recently begun serving Afternoon Tea, which has proved popular with our guests and locals alike. We’ll be laying these on again from time to time and have an Afternoon Tea Weekend in the diary for the 27th-28th May, so contact us to book yourself a place at the tea trolley…

During the last three months, we’ve continued with our programme of redecoration by giving the dining room a fresh lick of paint and a nice new dresser. We’re always looking for ways to make your stay even better; rooms four, five and six now have 28″ Smart TVs, along with new clocks and feedback clipboards in every room.

We’ve also produced a glossy new leaflet – if you’d like a copy, send us your postal address and we will wing one over to you.

Introducing our new Chaffeur Experience!

We’ve teamed up with Foremost Private Hire chauffeurs to create days to remember for your nearest and dearest. So if you would like to plan an extra special trip then get in touch and we can discuss the options available.

Would you prefer a sedate New Forest tour in air conditioned luxury and a Champagne picnic or dinner and a show in Southampton? Just let us know your requirements and we’ll do the rest…

Family Outings

There are plenty of attractions in and around the New Forest to while away the days. Paultons Park is a must for those with Peppa Pig obsessed youngsters.

If you prefer your animals to be real then the New Forest Wildlife Park has an enormous variety from dainty butterflies to wild boar and grey wolves!

And if you still need to burn off some energy then why not get on your bike with Trax Bike Hire. The Trax team will deliver fully-serviced bicycles to The Maples ready for you to explore the area on two wheels…
