This year was yet another busy one and our best so far. Though, compared with the same time last year, it looks like 2019 is going to be even more successful. There aren't many free weeks left in the peak months (a snapshot of bookings as of 10 Dec 18): Week Cottage Heather Fern 06-Apr-19 [...]
A new boiler system and oil storage tank fitted during the middle of last month, preparing for Winter. Some nice views for one day whilst visiting.

Despite the time of year, at the end of October it was almost a summer's day with the weather. Plus we had daily visitors as company for breakfast.
