I have been trying for days to upload a (small) map showing which parts of the country all our guests come from. So far success has eluded me so instead we are going to show you two rather lovely Parwich pictures.
John got up early this to capture some peaceful morning scenes after a wonderful cleat, crisp and frosty night with the most enormous full moon, apparently nearer the earth than it has been for 20 years…

We have just moved the outside tap to a new position which is lot more accessible for the guests. Great for washing boots, dogs and bikes.

There are still a few days available in Tom’s […]
