Nutritionist, author and chef Daphne Lambert has been running Penrhos Court with her husband Martin Griffiths for 25 years. Fundamental to the philosophy of Penrhos is the use of organic produce. Penrhos was the first restaurant to be awarded the Soil Association Organic Symbol.
The hotel is run by the organic ethos emphasising the importance of a lifestyle that incorporates seasonal, local, community based production with care for the environment and all things that within it.
High standards in the kitchen are carried through to the hotel. All linen and bath towels are 100% organic cotton, every complimentary gift is sourced from environmentally aware companies such as Neal’s Yard and Duchy Originals and all cleaning and laundering products are eco-friendly.
Daphne also runs Green Cuisine food and health courses www.greencuisine.org and has co-written several wonderful recipe books including the Organic Baby and Toddler Cookbook.
Such a good weekend, thank you to the entire team. I have to admit I was a little nervous about turning up with my "lively" toddler for a retreat weekend where he was on the upper cusp of the age recommendation, knowing all the other babies would be so much younger and less mobile than him! I thought others may wonder why I was on the retreat having got through the "tiny baby" stage and now being well into toddlerhood - but I honestly think I may have needed it even more now than in the early days!!... Life seems to have got even more exhausting for me at times since returning to work, starting a training course and now being pregnant again with number 2!!... it was really lovely that everyone was so welcoming and supportive and no one made me feel out of place in any way and I definitely got what I needed - rest and relaxation, some lovely relaxing yet also energising yoga sessions, quality time with my son, an opportunity to be listened to, time to talk with and listen to others and hear their inspiring stories/experiences, delicious, nutritious food and time to reflect and enjoy some "space" where I didn't have to do or think about anything else - bliss!! I hope to be back in the near future.
