** All the action from Country Blog Retreat 2017 here!**


Country Blog Retreat NI

I’m really excited to say that I’ve confirmed the very beautiful Larchfield Estate as the venue for our blogging and Social Media get together.  After visiting at the beginning of July, I was just smitten with it and honestly can’t think of anywhere more perfect.  Be sure to bring your camera!  The date is Sunday 24th September.

We have limited numbers (I’ve been overwhelmed by all your interest, thank you so much!) so if you are interested in coming along please do be quick.  All the details are below!


Location : Larchfield Estate, Bailliesmills Rd, Lisburn

Arrive : Sunday 24th September 1pm (the afternoon will finish around 5pm)

Price : £37 per person to include Gourmet Afternoon Tea and Specially Curated Goodie Bag, Photo Walk in the Walled Garden and seminars from some local industry pros.



I’ve included a rough itinerary of the afternoon below, including a few topics that we’re planning on covering.  Whilst this afternoon is designed as an informal, fun meet up, there will be a blogging and Social Media focus.  I wanted to just reiterate that in case you sign yourself up and then wonder what you’ve let yourself in for! 😉
