Happy New Year to all our guests - old and new. I realised that I have not updated my blog since November, which is due to being very busy. The winter months are quieter as our yurts are taken down and stored in the barn and then put back on their bases for the Easter holidays. However our lovely little shepherds hut has been very popular through the Christmas and New Year period and guests enjoy sole use of the facilities during this period. The weather once again has been very mild with plenty of rain and wind and our fields are looking a little muddy. Horses are notorius for poaching the fields and our 4 old horses are wintering well as the warm temperatures are welcomed by our geriatrics. Our lake has been overflowing and the resident swan is still on the lake. The ducks have been getting frisky with each other and there are small signs of spring in the flora and fauna. Lots of people have been making bookings this past week and we look forward to welcoming them in the coming months. Last year was a bumper year with around 1000 people staying with us in 2019. Lets hope 2020 will continue to be as popular! Last night we had the first full moon of the year - coupled with a partial lunar eclipse and a clear night a spectacular sight to see. Living in a rural location is wonderful for star gazing!
