New members receive a welcome letter and voucher to spend in the château’s online shop which sells everything from personalised books to homeware, a mounted watercolour château print signed by the couple, a seasonal menu card to get ready for a virtual cook-along, plus details of what’s coming up. Those who join will also receive a quarterly gift, the first is a personalised stationery set.

Every month, guests can spend a virtual evening with Dick and Angel where they will share behind-the-scenes secrets to life at the 19th-century Château de la Motte-Husson, usually over a G&T. There will be cook-alongs and craft-alongs with all content going into a library to catch up on when you can. For anyone with a crafty conundrum or DIY dilemma, you can also ‘Ask the Strawbridges’ for their advice via email.
