Minimal Signage

Anyone who's been to our training centre will know that we believe in minimal signage - not for us a whole raft of don't do this and don't do that posters .... mind you, there are some times that a sign is necessary.

Here's a picture taken at Longleat, about 10 miles from us. A loveely afternoon, and where better to have a cream tea than tucked down in the Cellar Restaurant. Did I say "down" - oh silly me - what an assumption to make ....

At Well House Manor, currently projected to be opening in early October, we're going to continue with our minimal signage policy. For sure, there'll be a clear sign telling you that you're in the right place at the gate, a direction arrow pointing you towards the parking, and one of those "you park your car here at your own risk" signs that have become almost mandatory these days. But really not very much else ...



After tea, anyone for tennis? What a spiffing idea, but mind the sign ....



To be fair to the folks at Longleat, let me tell you that the Cellar Restaurant is actually in the Cellar, and that there's no public tennis on that court ... I'm sure they've got really tired of being asked. And whilst I felt that their "you may NOT" conditions would have been shorter had they provides a "you MAY" list, they do at least have professional and consistently designed signage most of the way around. Anyhow ... a fun time was had by all, as they do NOT say "You may not make fun of our signs"
