This year has raced by so far and Easter is almost upon us. We have had an eventful couple of months with internet problems and beef supply problems, interspersed with an enjoyable short break in Florence with our family. We now have internet connection again, faster and more stable than ever before, so we can again offer our guests wi-fi facilities. Apologies must go to our customers for the failure to have fresh beef supplies in April, the steer that we had selected to provide the beef had other ideas and refused to be loaded into the trailer. He charged back to the shed where he had been for a week or so previously, flattening Alan in the process, and second time of trying he cleared a loading gate and took himself back to the field where he had spent the winter. We will, however have fresh beef in May and will be at the Food Market in Malton on the 13th May. The countryside is now looking very spring-like, and our garden is a riot of spring flowers and fresh growth on shrubs and trees. The weather has been kind - and looks set to remain so - and we have been able to enjoy sitting out in the garden on a number of occasions, taking in our stunning view. We still have some vacancies for Easter, and don't forget that for the third year running the Tour de Yorkshire passes the top of our drive at the summit of the last "King of the Mountains" stage on the first day, 28th April. If you are fancying treating yourself to a break just check availability on our room calendars and book online - it couldn't be simpler. If you prefer not to use the online system just give us a ring.
Spring is in the air, and the stone troughs in the farmyard have been planted with daffodils and primulas for you to enjoy while you sit in the sun and soak up our marvellous view. The daffodils alongside our drive and in the garden are also coming into flower now. Jan has also been busy in the kitchen making bramble jelly for our guests to enjoy, using blackberries picked around the farm last autumn. We have vacancies over the Easter period, so book now to come and join us.
