The Alice Palace Christmas party !

By Alice on Monday December 14th 2009 at 14:02

On Friday morning Liz and I escaped (through all the fog and coldness!) to Peterstone Court Country House & Spa in the Brecon Beacons - and had an AMAZING time!!

image

We stayed in one of the converted stables, enjoyed a jacuzzi, sauna, massage, and manicure in the spa ...

image

...and had a delicious dinner (most of the meat and poultry on their menu comes from their own family farm just seven miles down the road) - I had a beef salad to start, followed by duck and then a very delicious choclate brownie with white chocolate icecream - nice and full!!
