2022 New Year’s Brunch At Holly Hedge Estate
We regret that we had to make the very difficult decision to cancel the 2022 New Years Brunch due to the rise in Covid cases. Refunds will be issued to those who made reservations. We have booked HollyHedge for New Years Day 2023 and hope to see you then. Wishing you and yours a very Happy Holiday and good health, and happiness in the New Year.
