If I am around feel free to Skype chat with me. I can even walk you around via cam to any room you want to see. Just press the button immediately below.....

Please click any picture to see the full size version

With our in-house media system you can compose a personalised playlist of photographs (past to the present) with your own specific music and even have your very own webpage constructed for video messages, text and pictures.

.... and, wait for it, it's all entirely FREE!


Within the belly and soul of the ancient St. Swithins Cottage lurks a technological python of the new modern era IT viz. a "100 Mbps Ethernet Network".

Now you don't have to worry about what that jargon means all you need to think about is what it can do for me and my party. Well a huge amount if you take advantage of its capabilities and let Dean handle the intricacies of taking your data and making it available to you all throughout the house on your arrival.

Effectively Dean can link any amount of images you supply to him to any number of music tracks that you also supply in a specific order or randomly. By putting them on the house's media server they are then available to be played throughout the house on the various TV screens and utilising the various Surround Sound systems.

If you are really clever then can go one stage further and compose a movie which can also be shown throughout the house as well. Therefore you could have a personalised introduction movie setting the scene and then follow that by your playlist of pictures to music - fantastic!

Hey and guess what? All thess additional services are entirely FREE!



Here's how you do it:
  • First - Pictures: Obviously you have to collate the pictures you want together.

    A really good and easy way to do this is to create a "flickr" account and pass the address details to all your friends and family so they can upload images to it.

    Also make sure that you and your friends upload all your pictures into the "Your Photostream" section of flickr and don't worry with making "Sets" or "Groups" up as I cannot download them if they are in a "Set" or "Group".

    You don't have to worry about pictures coming in at different sizes as Dean will sort that out when he downloads them onto his system. However please ensure they are all in "JPEG" format.

  • Second - Pictures: When you have all the photographs that you want to be used uploaded to "flickr" you then have to advise Dean of both the account name and password.

    He will then logon to that specific "flickr" account and download all the pictures. Once downloaded he will then run them through a picture resizing program to ensure they are of a uniform size / aspect ratio and load them onto his media server.

  • Third - Music: Dean already has a Hen Party playlist of music consisting of almost 400 tracks but should you want your own, in particular, simply collate together the music you want run in conjunction with the pictures.

    Please ensure that your music is in a "MP3" format.

  • Fourth - Music: Once you have them all together just bring them with you on a USB stick on the day of your arrival and Dean will simply create a music folder for you, add your files to it and asscoiate your pictures, already provided, with that folder.

  • Fifth - Video: Should you wish to compose a personalised video or set of videos from family and friends unable to attend then simply upload it or them to your YouTube account and Dean will do the rest for you when you arrive.

So that's it folks all you have to do is follow these instructions to make your event so personalised for that special person or persons you are celebrating - Olay!
