Anything to distract from the acutely pressing need to do our tax before the end of Jan but I couldn’t resist adding (and I still haven’t mastered how to do it neatly) one or two photos that John has taken in the last couple of days. The most lovely one of our Orchard Farm robin, on our doorstep this morning in the (relatively) warm sunshine this beautiful frosty winter morning, you can see here, on our website Home page.
John was up and out early this morning, enjoying the wonderfully frosty peaceful scenes as Parwich wakes up to a new day after an extremely cold night. Peaceful it may be, but the woodpecker can be heard now, every day, down by Church Farm…
John is still trying to capture birds in flight, and there are a couple of rather amazing pics here of bluetits with the sun shining through their wings. They look so beautiful and their movements so graceful, but watching them outside they don’t seem quite so gracious, although not such curiously bad-tempered little creatures as the goldfinches who are always squabbling with each other and fending off any other birds who also want to come to the feeders!
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
There are some new attractions added to the list of treats available with the Premier Cottages special privileges card. Amongst them are Renishaw Hall, Thornbridge Hall Gardens (new discounts), Hassop Station Cafe, Village Green Cafe Eyam, Carsington Water Sports and Leisure, Hartington Cheese Shop.
There are still a few free dates at the end of March/April in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Short breaks, 3 or 4 nights, which are not normally available are on offer. Please look at availability and give me a call or book on line.
