Autumn Colours

A walk round the garden yesterday shows that autumn isn't over yet - some lovely colours out there!

Moles Again

Moles Again

They're back - those pesky moles!!

Christmas is Coming!

November already!  Just 5 months to go before I close for business (selling up to pay my husband's nursing home costs!)

We currently have a promotional offer of 10% discount on all November dates.

Christmas is coming up quickly.  There is availability over the Christmas period.  Why not book a short break to relax before Christmas or visit Whitby's unique shops for those last minutes presents - there are lots of Christmas fayres and craft events coming up.

Although this is a quieter time for Whitby, there is still lots on offer.  Lower rates in the cottage, lower visitor numbers so no crowds, parking charges suspended. Experience a 'different' Whitby.


Whitby Abbey

Duck News

Duck News

The ducks have not been around for a while - they are patronising other establishments at the moment.  I've spotted them in the garden of another holiday cottage and this afternoon they were sunbathing on the river bank opposite.  They'll be back when they get hungry!!

Better Things to Come

After a weekend of high winds and heavy rain, the day ended with this beautiful sunset.  Here's hoping for better weather tomorrow.

Windy Day!

It's been a bit windy today!  This large branch fell off the Horse Chestnut tree - not to mention most of the conkers too.  The wind also smashed the rose arch by the holiday cottage.  No point trying to do anything until the wind dies down - hopefully tomorrow.

Ducks Again!

Ducks Again!

These ducks are so greedy - they can't wait for me to open a new bag of food.  Sadly for them - ducks don't have sharp beaks, so they still have to wait for me!

Breakfast

Breakfast time - it's like working in a zoo!!

A Touch of Autumn

A Touch of Autumn

Well September has started with a touch of Autumn.  A change in the weather brought some welcome rain and things have started to green up again.  Nicely refreshing  after the sultry weather of recent weeks.

The river is running very low at the moment.  Although this is low tide I don't think I've seen it as low before.
