Saturday 9 June the biggest changeover this year (possibly!)

Woke to another lovely day and another 8am breakfast. Last morning for my two couples who have been undertaking a 90 mile circular walk in the Peak District. Today is the last leg and a shorter one as they have been able to complete more than planned each day mainly due to good weather and their stamina!

The courtyard is always a hive of activity by 9 am as cars are loaded and bins emptied and goodbyes said. By 10 am cleaning was well underway and luckily no problems to hinder us and as the cottages had been left in a good state good progress as made. I had to squeeze in a defrost too. We had two lots of returning guests in the cottages and one in the B&B who was also bringing his sister. One couple are more like friends and as soon as they arrived wanted to know if we could put them up for longer. We hope to have a BBQ or drink one evening depending on how things go. All guests were here by 6 pm. Another exhausting day and no cooking tonight so a pizza was collected from Ricci’s in Bakewell – they do the best pizzas in town – we think!
