The first day of Spring and what better way....

to welcome Spring in nature calendar than to have new life.- Tina our fox red labrador gave birth to 8 perfectly formed healthy puppies. We have lambs being born. My dad went out and found some wild violets for my mum. Primroses are everywhere and the wild garlic is greening up under the trees in the woods.The birds are singing and pairing up. A pair of partridges are running up and down the drive looking for the perfect place to make their nest. There is buds on the trees.Jack mowed the lawn yesterday for the first time ....summer is on the way.There is a lot going on in the countryside at the moment.

Jack -one of the 50 friendly faces of North Yorkshire

It has just been confirmed that my husband, Jack, is one of the 50 friendly faces of North Yorkshire.This is a campaign run by the North Yorkshire Moors and Coast Tourisn Partnership.The initiative spotlights the people who best reflect and represent the welcoming nature of the Yorkshire Moors and Coast area.
They were asked to share their favourite place which brings a smile to their faces. Jack said "The triangle taking in the Abbeys of Ampleforth,Byland and the new Stanbrook at the top of Wass Bank.Every morning I walk out of the door I couldnt imagine living anywhere else but under the backdrop of these ancient woods with beautiful views in the peace and quiet. To round the day off what better way than to mix with friends down at the local village pub just a mile away."-

More than just Bed and Breakfast

This is Bed and Breakfast with a new twist.
Sometimes you may not wish to eat out all the time, just want to have a snack and relax ,bring in a light meal and warm it up .So we have come up with an idea- in our sun room we have just bought a larder fridge and a microwave for you to take advantage of. There will be a selection of crockery and cutlery in your room for your use during your stay .There is also a picnic hamper if you wish to take meals out with you. A stainless steel barbecue is out on the terrace with table and chairs All this is free, all we ask you to do is to leave everything which is at your disposal as it was when you arrived...... more later as we are busy doing the finishing touches today .
