Late availability offers for Easter 2017. Our outdoor pool is open ready for the Easter 2017 holidays! The pool is always warm and hopefully we will see some sunshine. There is plenty to do here with a tennis court, hot tub, play area and games room on site as well as the pool. Bude and Widemouth Bay are just a few minutes’ drive away. There are great beaches like Widemouth Bay within a 10 minute drive. Try surfing, kayaking or body boarding at a local beach. Book a stand-up paddle boarding on the canal for beginners. Take a swim in Bude’s Sea Pool at Summerleaze Beach or explore the rock pools. Walk along the canal tow path into Bude and enjoy a cream tea, or discover the beautiful South West coastal path.

Spring is in the air – hopefully. As I write this Storm Doris is howling round the house, bringing gales and lots of rain. However, we are now into February and this week I have seen lots of snowdrops and a few primroses.
The first daffodils are out, although the wind will probably flatten them tonight. It definitely feels warmer this week when I am walking our puppy (who is now in the naughty toddler stage), despite the wind.
Our hens have started laying again as well. Unfortunately, we had a visit from the fox at the end of November. The cheeky thing had three of our newest hens. The others went on strike, except for one who laid an egg every day all through December. However, now the days are getting longer we are getting more eggs each week. Good for baking!
While we are quiet we are busy trying to fit in work to update the cottages, with the help of our local builder /handy man and his daughter . They have started taking off the rendering on the outside of our lovely Farmhouse, revealing a lot of old stone wall which we are re-pointing. This is a very time consuming and painstaking job, not helped by the winter weather. We are also re-fitting bathrooms in the Farmhouse and Manor, doing some decorating and laying new flooring.
This week I booked the local pool maintenance company to re-open our pool at the end of March, ready for Easter! Only a couple of months to go now and hopefully we will see some sunshine. If not, you can always hide in the hot tub.
