This is the new picnic table. It arrived as a flat pack and once we'd interpreted the instructions (which were in English), it went together quite easily. It's very sturdy and will be a good replacement for the old one which was showing distinct signs of age, wear and rot! Definitely time for a new one. Now all we need is some good weather so it can be used - not much fun sitting outside if it's snowing!!04:33 PM | 0 Comments
The 1st February today and the year is really under way. It's still winter and although it's been wet & windy, we've had very little snow (perhaps it's on its way!!) We begin the new season's bookings this month.
Visiting Whitby in the Winter is a totally different experience to visiting in the summer. It's easy to get around - no crowds; it's easy to park. The views are spectacular as the light is often very clear at this time of year - that's why it's so popular with artists. When it snows there is that magical air about the place.
We are so lucky to live here!!04:16 PM | 0 Comments
We are now open for business again - the cottage has had a thorough spring clean, re-decorated where necessary, and all small repairs, replacements and updates completed.07:23 PM | 0 Comments
Do check the bookings calendar as sometimes we receive cancellations and dates become available again. Sadly for a couple of our regular visitors, due to ill health, dates are now available at the end of June and the end of August.
We wish our guests a return to good health.03:59 PM | 0 Comments
Spring must be on the way! Spotted these snowdrops in a sheltered spot under the hedge at the bottom of the garden.04:09 PM | 0 Comments
