Gardening with 'friends' doesn't always make the job easier!

Bird's Eye View

Bird's Eye View

This photo was taken from the top of the viaduct.  Most  trains are being hauled by diesel engines because of the extreme fire risk on the moors.

More Birds

These Pied Wagtails have taken a shine to the picnic table.  This summer's parched grass is ideal for them and they like the short grass.

August Discounts

The school holidays are here.  We have vacancies 18-26 August - special offer - 7 nights reduced from £510 to £450.  Short breaks available too.

More Ducklings

More Ducklings

Another batch of ducklings today - nine in all.  She must have nested in the hedge bottom on the other side of the road - so there was a heart-stopping moment and she brought them across.

Diesels

Two more diesel engines running in place of the steamers due to the extreme fire risk on the moors.

Wildlife Area

Wildlife Area

It's that time of year again when the wildlife area gets the grass cut.  After all the winter rain the grass was 5-6 ft high in places.  Now it's dry and parched.  This area always looks bigger when the grass is cut - just an optical illusion.

August Availability

August Availability

We have just 8 days available in August - 18-26 August.  This coincides with Whitby Folk Week and the school holidays.  Just give me a call to book your dates.

New Diesel Engine

New Diesel Engine

The London Transport L142 Sir John Betjeman diesel engine will be running along the line through the summer.  Diesel engines are replacing some of the steamers due to the high fire risk on the moorland.
