In the Top Three

We were surprised, but delighted, to see that we were listed in the Yorkshire Post today as one of the best three places to stay close to the 'Cinder Track' between Whitby and Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast.

Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

The long days are slowly leaving us as we slip from summer into autumn. Soon the children will be back at school and Robin Hood's Bay will be a little less busy (and Whitby too).

Heather, Glorious Heather.

Heather, Glorious Heather.

The moors are clad in their purple mantle once more as we reach the peak of the flowering season for the heather. It seems a little earlier this year, and if other plants are any indicator it may not last as long as usual following the hot, dry spell we have had. The extremes of temperature this year - the bitter cold of the 'Beast' and the recent roasting - have played havoc with grouse numbers, so for those with an interest in that it is perhaps not such a glorious twelth today. But if your interests lie in walking, cycling or visiting this area in a more leisurely manner the moors really are at their best right now.

Mediterranean Weather!

Mediterranean Weather!

We have enjoyed some glorious weather this past month, and it seems set to continue for a while yet. The lavender in the yard is looking at its best as a result of the Mediterranean climate, and is attracting a host of bees, butterflies and moths, including the hummingbird moth. It is perfect weather to escape to the coast for a couple of nights, or a longer break, and enjoy the delights of Robin Hood's Bay and its surroundings. Guests are always welcome to sit in our garden to enjoy the spectacular view, and if they don't want to drive there are beautiful walks down to the Bay and over the moors above us, where the heather is just starting to come into bloom.

Summer Visitors

Summer really is upon us now and the first brood of swallows in our barn will soon be leaving the nest. (Not all our guests sleep 'four in a bed'!) We also have a pair of tawny owls nesting in the big old sycamore tree in the garden and had the pleasure of watching one of the pair fly from the hole in broad daylight. Our recent guests have been delighted with the wildlife that is to be seen at Skerry Hall and have enjoyed some of the superb walking country that is literally on our doorstep.
