Daffodils and Snowdrops

Spring is on the way and our snowdrops and primroses are coming out.  IMG_0788The daffodils are appearing and soon it will be Bluebell time in our woods. This is a lovely picture of Vince and Quasia in last years spring bluebells.

We are re-building the steps by the swimming pool (which opens from May 1st), over the next month to make sure that the route to our woods is safe for our guests.

The bridleway lane which is used to reach us is also in need of much repair so that is being dealt with very soon.

Our very good 3 nights for 2 offer runs until the end of April – so come and see us soon.

Autumn Breaks

Christmas will soon be here but we are still enjoying lovely Autumn weather and it is still unusually warm.  Never the less our current guests are enjoying the log-fires in their rooms as it makes for a very cosy feel and it is lovely to go to bed by firelight.

Vince and Quasia (my two lovely Guide Dogs) are still chasing Autumn leaves and enjoying welcoming our guests who are now here on our Autumn Breaks.

Just to remind you that we have very attractive Gift Vouchers available for a very special Christmas or Birthday present.  If you buy a two night stay which is valid for twelve months then the recipient will be able to book 3 nights for two until the end of April on our special Autumn and Spring Breaks offer.

This is a lovely Christmas present – phone for more details.

Autumn is here

Autumn is here and today our swimming pool was put to bed until next spring.

Quasia is finding Autumn fun and is chasing the leaves as they blow along the lane.img_0789-3

Here is a lovely picture of her with a large red leaf in her mouth!

Vince just watches her and prefers to lie down in the sunshine.  We have had some good spells of sun lately.

Our 3 for 2 Autumn & Spring Breaks have started, offering very good value and of course log fires in each room make your stay very cosy.  You can book on our website or of course telephone us .

Trip to the Beach

We all went to the Beach recently for a day trip after aimg_0783 very busy summer.

Vince and Quasia enjoyed their time beachat the beach with Vince digging and Quasia playing with her ball.

We are now getting ready for our Autumn and Winter Breaks that start in October and give a free night if you stay for two nights.  Hope to welcome you


The weather has been very warm lately and the pool has been constantly at 28 – 30 C.

It is very peaceful in our valley and the wildlife continues to surprise us.  The latest very amusing incident happened this weekend when a small Vole appeared on the window sill of our Art Deco room and decided to visit the room!  Possibly it was a female as she looked pregnant!She later appeared on the terrace outside our Craftsman’s Garden Room before running off.

Now Vince is fully retired he is getting very lazy and seems to enjoy his retirement but he puts up very well with Quasia, who is very energetic at only 2 years old!! .  But she very good on her harness.

Our current summer guests are all asking about our Autumn and Spring Break Dates when you can enjoy 3 nights fr the price of 2 – with the extra breakfast available if required.  All details are on our website or you can phone me to choose your room and book direct.  The breaks start on Monday 30 October 2016
