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.
It's over two months since we've returned from the retreat and I only now find the time to write something about how very wonderful my experience with Mamaheaven was....this is telling in itself - it gave me time, breathing space, an opportunity to reflect and be nurtured. By coming up for air it reinforced what an amazing bundle of troublesome loveliness my little boy is and I'm excited about the rest of our journey together whilst savouring exactly where we are at right now. Go, it's so worth it.
