Mulberry Cottages; Scorching at the Heathfield Show!

With suncream in one hand and a Pimms in the other, the team from Mulberry Cottages made their way down to the Heathfield Show last Saturday –

Not sure how anything with this thick a woolly jumper would respond to the weather over the weekend! Hats off to the sheep!

…the weather forecast was predicting good weather (following two years straight of rain and cloud) and the stands were out in force offering fashion, textiles, cookery equipment, animal accessories and enough burgers and ice cream to render anyones diet a disaster!

The gorgeous Mulberry Cottages corner- a haven of serenity amongst the baaing and mooing of this country show!

Mulberry Cottages were sharing a stand with our very good friends, the Land Agency CLM who provided a great contrast with serene green to the red of Mulberry Cottages and gave us arguably the best looking stand at the show!

The happy partnership of CLM and Mulberry Cottages made for an interesting stand

As the visitors started to flock in, Mulberry Cottages and CLM had thoughtfully arranged a number of tables and chairs, bedecked with summer flowers and Mulberry goodies for our customers to enjoy whilst having a chilled drink, a juicy burger or just a little sit down!

Not the only sort of 'hot dogs' on offer at this year's show!

The events at this years show didn’t disappoint either, with something to please all ages and tastes. From dumpy ponies to sleek racehorses, noisy sheep and tricks with axes (yes really!)- the fun lasted all day, culminating in a grand display called Mini madness, essentially a group of mini cars being driven around in such a way as is not exactly legal under normal circumstances!

Not strictly compliant with road safety!

All in all, a great day was had but all the visitors and there were many smiling (if a bit sunburnt) faces leaving come 5 o’clock- we had a fantastic day seeing old friends and making new ones… Thank you to everyone who organised the event and why not come down and see us next year? Stay with Mulberry Cottages in Berkerley Cottage (just 10 minutes away from the showground) and enjoy the show before returning to you luxury country hideaway to put your feet up and enjoy a chilled Pimm’s! http://www.mulberrycottages.com/cottage/holiday-cottages-in-east-sussex/52246-berkeley-cottage/

What more could you possibly want to make a summer day perfect!
