Reopening Soon

No sooner have family and friends departed after Christmas than it seems the time for reopening our B&B is upon us, with just over three weeks to go now until Friday 15th February. We thought that it was hectic preparing for Christmas, with family arriving from Australia, Iraq and Trinidad, as well as the UK, but we are just as busy now preparing for our first guests of 2019, making marmalade and jams, as well getting on with jobs such as TB testing the herd, fitting a new hot water cylinder, etc. etc.

Planning a Break?

Planning a Break?

Summer has truly left us now, and altering the clocks in the early hours of the morning will serve to underline that. The days may now be shorter, and the weather more variable, but there is still plenty to see and do around Robin Hood's Bay. There is plenty of colour in the hedgerows, particularly with this year's heavy crop of holly berries (will they last until Christmas?), and if you are dressed for the changeable weather it's a wonderful time to go walking.We still have vacancies until after the Victorian Weekend in December, when we will close until February next year.

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.
