Monday Email and Weather Update

10.30am Disregard all below: we are back in email contact with a mass of delayed emails thronging in. How we do rely on technology these days, and how vulnerable when it breaks down. What us more it has stopped snowing and the sun is shining. (The snow we love, it’s just a worry on changeover [...]

Busman's Holiday for our Mystery Shoppers

Not so trapped that we haven’t enjoyed two lovely evenings recently with local friends… Our guests are coping far [...]

Latest weather report

The cold weather continues, the snow covers the surrounding hills and valleys and Parwich sparkles in the bright sunlight (at least it has been all day).
