Love at first sight - c'est la vie

Love at first sight - c'est la vie

August 7th, 2020

The idea to get into hospitality was growing in the back of my mind from early on in 2019. I first voiced the idea to a dear friend over a glass of wine at my "local" in Croxley Green on 21/8/2019. On 13/9/2019 I shared my plans with 50 of my old school friends at our 30-year school reunion. The cat was out of the bag!

From then on there was no stopping me, despite COVID-19 delaying implementation of my plans. With hindsight this was not a bad thing at all. I may have ended up with another, smaller, less suitable property - was it not for the first lockdown. Nothing happens by chance.

After a delayed stay at a lovely B&B in Fort William in August 2020 and several commercial property viewings over a 2 day period I drove up the narrow drive to the house which was instrumental in realising the dream. 7th August 2020, almost a year since my comment over a drink, my hospitality dream "started to crawl".
