Blooming June

After a dismal Spring Bank Holiday Monday we had another fine spell of weather so Andrew did the first silage.  There was a glut of well dressings at the beginning of June so in quick succession we went to Tissington, Monyash and Ash...

Spring into May

The first part of May was dry but spoilt by easterly winds which kept the edge of the temperatures.  The first of the cows came over to our side of the road and one afternoon we took advantage of the nice weather and did a short walk in D...

April and Easter

The beginning of April saw another warm spell with a warm weekend the weekend before Easter.  The cows came out for summer pasture on the 8th but with a busy Saturday we were unable to see them leave the sheds.   Made a trip to the G...


As if not to lull us into a false security we woke up to snow on the last day of February.  The beginning of March turned colder before a mild spell made us all feel like winter was over.  March can be fickle with some days feeling spring...

February Half Term

The February half term sees an increase in arrivals and departures.  The days leading up to half term were cold with snow flurries but the Saturday itself (10 February) was cold and snowy. Although the snow settled it was quite slushy and ...

From Saturday January 7 we had a quieter period as the post New Year guests started to depart.  For a couple of weeks we had just a few cottages in.  Took advantage of the lull to catch up on accounts and commence the deep cleaning r...

January 1st 2017 started cold and wet with a few sleety showers.  A quiet day with lunch at the Aisseford Tearoom after which brother in law headed home. Monday was a cold but sunny day.  No arrivals or departures and it was back to busin...

Apologies for the lack of blogs

I have some blogs prepared but somehow 2017 seems to be racing by.  I will start publishing blogs over the next few days with most of the last couple of months being condensed into a couple of blogs. The post Apologies for the lack of blog...

The big change over

There was a hard frost first thing on Wednesday 28 December.  Luckily there was no fog here.  Four departures and six arrivals and three cleaners here.  With some early departures we were able to make a prompt start to cleaning which...

Christmas walks

Christmas Eve was bright and breezy and with no arrivals we decided to go for a walk. We opted for a walk from the door to Monyash and parked one of the cars there then we headed down to Lathkill Dale via Mill Farm.  The wind had picked up by ...
