Time Waits for No-One !
A final announcement from the owners
When moving to the UK and opening our doors at Glazebrook House to the public in 2014, Fran and I have often talked at length about an exit strategy for our business – both in terms of the ‘when’ and the ‘how’. We are writing at this time to share with you our intentions for the future on each count.
Having both recently arrived at a major milestone birthday (luckily surviving the impact of COVID-19 in the process), and after much deep reflection, we have decided to close the Glazebrook Hotel and Restaurant with effect from the 1st of January, 2022. Our intention is to continue providing Glazebrook House as an events venue after that date under which the house will be made available for use on a limited, exclusive-use only basis. This will allow us more time to “smell the roses” and also spend more valuable time with family and friends.
As might be imagined this decision was a painful one, as the joy of being able to host you, our guests, over the past almost 8 years has been indescribable!! Adding to the pain will be saying farewell to all the wonderful staff we have been so fortunate to work with, and without whom the overall success of our business wouldn’t have been possible – Fran and I are deeply indebted to their service and their help in creating the magical place that Glazebrook House has become known to be. They will remain etched in our memories with love and joy. We would also like to thank all our designers, vendors and service organizations without whose support we wouldn’t have been able to grow and thrive the way we have.
In closing, we would like to add that our love for the local people and the region continues to grow with each passing day, and we hope to be able to still see many of you who live locally and to keep in touch with those further afield.
Thank you all and God Bless!
Pieter and Fran Hamman xxxx
