Since its first steps, the home of Mamaheaven has been the beautiful and enchanting Penrhos Court, where we have grown with the wonderful support of Daphne Lambert, owner and chef.
Daphne Lambert runs a wonderful kitchen where fresh, organic ingredients are prepared so they offer the utmost in nutritional value. Bread is baked fresh every day and there is also a fine selection of organic wines. Penrhos Court was the first restaurant to be awarded the Soil Association organic symbol and Daphne Lambert is co-author of the Organic Baby and Toddler Cookbook.
The beautiful bedrooms, in the converted threshing barn, are named after birds found nearby. All are non-smoking and have en-suite bathrooms and organic linen.
ancient buildings renovated with love and care…
This is the oldest part of the manor house, dating from about 1280,
The first floor is constructed into squares of about six feet with the joists and then the floor boards in each square at 90 degrees to the adjacent square, giving a chequer board pattern.
The circle or Celtic cross design of the timber construction in the front gable end, seen from the outside, is called cusping and is just for decoration.
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.
