Some of our latest news, thoughts and the odd bit of helpful advice.
We completed the Croyde Scrumptious Trail last weekend. 10 miles walk (or run) around our beautiful countryside, over 10 stops to sample local food and drink and money raised for "over and above" a local hospital charity.

We feel so pleased for our guests that both Bank Holidays in May have been super weather.

The walk on National Trust land follows the path of the stream through a deep wooded valley and opens out into a pebble beach where we all started creating "art" with the stones, just like the people before us and just like we probably will do next time we are there. Its not as easy as it looks to get a reasonable tower and having the spaniels with us certainy wasn't helping. We're closed now for winter, as usual, but if you come to stay next summer I would certainly consider this as...Read more
