On our arrival we got greeted by the staff at Soho Farmhouse who took us directly to the main clubhouse barn where a delicious brunch was waiting for us. Even though outside was so cold, I instantly felt the cosiness and warmth that Soho houses have. Their effortless style, yet so elegant and well thought, makes you feel a hipster English countryside vibe. It felt very much like the Danish word hygge, imagine having brunch by the fire place while enjoying the view of the lake.
After finishing brunch, we went on to the beautiful Barwell Barn, where we enjoyed some workshops and drinks. Some of the workshops included silk printing, flower arrangement and designing ceramics. We got to explore around, and let me say this place is amazing! They have a lovely greenhouse, bikes to ride all around, they plant their own veggies and they even have their own cinema inside, what else do you need for a getaway! They have barns and cottages for people to stay, or if you feel more adventurous you can even go glamping. Other facilities are the boathouse with an indoor and outdoor pool, grass tennis courts and six indoor and outdoor restaurants.
Right when we finished exploring the entire place, they took us to the main restaurant again, this time for a Prosecco reception (yes!) and a Q&A session with Soho House founder Nick Jones. After hearing all the insights and the story behind this amazing book, we enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea with more than 10 types of cakes.
If you love interiors, food and a stylish lifestyle, you will definitely love Soho House’s new book.
