One thing we are not short of here at Skerry Hall are breath-taking views. The view out across the Bay is never the same from one minute to the next let alone from one day to the next. It changes with the time of day, the seasons, the weather, the tides... the list goes on. Currently fields are being cut for hay or silage, changing the pattern and colour of the land. Last week we were treated to this view at dawn (yes, we are sometimes awake before 5am!) when everything took on a wonderful golden glow.
Almost half-way through another year, it’s hard to believe. We have a busy spell over the next week or two, but plenty of vacancies in July and August before we close in September for the remainder of the year for health reasons. If you are thinking of booking a break with us, now is the time to book!
The year has got off to a busy start for us and we were fully booked over the Easter weekend. We do, however have vacancies over the two May Bank Holiday weekends, so book now if you don't want to be disappointed! We have received three TripAdvisor reviews from our guests so far this spring, all three giving us a top rating, maintaining our 100% record in that respect. It is very satisfying to think that people enjoy staying with us and that we can make their well-earned breaks that little bit special.
After the abnormally warm February, March has also seen us enjoying some beautiful Spring weather with temperatures at or above the average for the time of year. This has conspired to bring Spring forward, and we have a superb show of daffodils not only in the garden but alongside the drive. There are also masses of wild primroses in bloom and the first of the native violets on the banks.
There are some dark goings on around Robin Hood's Bay this next couple of weeks as the Dark Skies Festival gets underway. It runs from 15th February until 3rd March and details of the many events planned can be found on the National Park's website at www.northyorkmoors.org.uk/darkskies. Here at Skerry Hall Farm we are priviledged to enjoy superb dark skies away from street lights and the light pollution glow of large connurbations. There are few places better to enjoy starry skies or the moon, which is spectacular when seen across the bay reflecting on the sea. There is a full moon on 19th February.
