MY WIFE and I awoke at Ragdale Hall at 8.15am on 1 January when our breakfast was delivered to our door. Your newspaper had already been delivered, so we read Marie Woolf's article about Ragdale with some surprise and irritation ("How they don't c elebrate down on the farm", 1 January).
No one is compelled to do anything at Ragdale, and certainly not starting at 7am as the article implied. The last two paragraphs were misleading. Lunch is a three-course affair, and dinner runs to four courses.
