It seems very strange, all of a sudden the nights are drawing in really quickly – the chucks and ducks are tucked up by 7.30pm … bless!
We’ve had a really good summer – I don’t understand how or where the reports of “the worst summer since 1993” have come from. Here in the Peak District we have had glorious weather with many weeks without rain … we have actually had brown grass, unheard of in these parts.
We have also had bumper crops of raspberries, apples, salad, and the best sweet peas I’ve ever grown – the cottages have reaped the benefit of these fragrant wonders. Not to mention a bumper crop of lovely guests!! been very busy – thank you all.
There is still some Availability in early December for those who would like a pre-Christmas break – our cottages will be dressed for Christmas, this year we are offering a glass of mulled wine or a glass of Blakelow Damson Gin on arrival … hic.
Chatsworth, Haddon and Kedleston Hall and Houses will also be open with seasonal events, carols by candlelight and the like … give me a call and we’ll tell you more.
