Over the past few days the colours of autumn have been blooming - with clear blue skies and chilly nights, with stars to be seen . There has been a touch of ground frost, but the days have been unseasonally warm for this time of year. The shepherds hut has been booked with some lovely guests visiting the area for the first time and enjoying the local pubs, the Tally Ho, the Monks Retreat and the Pig and Whistle. Half term week has the hut booked again, this time with guests returning for the second time. The hut can sleep up to 4 persons and has a cute little wood burning stove which keeps the hut lovely and warm on those cool evenings. The leaves are falling everywhere and next to the camp is a huge oak tree which is spilling its bounty of acorns all across our yard. I am clearing these as much as possible as they are poisonous to our horses. The horses are happily enjoying the sunshine but are now wearing their winter rugs. Lovely time to stay with us - quiet and peaceful too.
