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.
I booked Mama Heaven because I wanted some time to enjoy my baby girl without the daily chores getting in the way. But I gained so much more than that. The few days we spent at Florence House were blissful, inspiring and surprising…
Within minutes of checking into my luxury accommodaiton I truly relaxed for the first time since my beloved baby landed in my arms, six months previously. Relaxing came easy because we were in a beautiful, calm setting, surrounded by a team of amazing women with innate nurturing skills. And after creating a small being, bringing them into the world safely and nourishing them that’s EXACTLY what all new mothers need: a chance to slow down, be cooked for, listened to and told that we’re doing a great job.
What surprised me about Mama Heaven is that once cocooned in that safe, nurturing environment fears and joys of motherhood, that I was entirely oblivious to, came bubbling up. Expressing those emotions and being acknowledged provided some deep healing, and helped make my new role as a mother a bit less scary and even more joyful. Thank you Mama Heaven.
