It is already the middle of February and Spring is almost here. The days are drawing out, the grass is growing on steadily - in fact, it didn't really stop growing at all this Winter ! - the catkins are out and giving the hedges an early splash of colour and the daffodils and snowdrops and primroses are slowly coming to life again.

Thatch…..or slates ?

August has flown past again in a bit of a blur, as usual. It always seems to be our busiest month of the year, despite being fully booked from April until October. Keeping the pool up and running smoothly puts us both under extra pressure.

Matey think’s he’s a goat……!

Following two weeks of glorious, hot, sunny weather it is finally raining again, at last. I'm sorry if you're on holiday, or gardening, or harvesting or something but I sort of like our temperate climate. As I was just saying to one of our guests the other day, 'you have to have some "bad" weather to appreciate the good days'. Everything is growing like mad.

Invisible pigs !

June has been a reasonably 'benign' month, compared to the rest of the year. It has been mild, we've had some rain and some sunshine, everything is growing like mad so the animals are all fattening up nicely - in fact, some of us that aren't even dependant on grass are fattening up nicely, too. Surprisingly, it is now the last week of June.

Has May been yet another month of extremes ? After the driest, coldest April ever we've now had the wettest, coldest May for years. We have over the years had the swimming pool open in March and guests lying on the beach, sunbathing at Easter.
