February 2024

The start of a new season, the annual maintenance work and updates have been done. I’ve had my Visit England assessment, maintained my Five Star, Gold Award status including my 100% rating on cleanliness so I’m ready to go!

Walking round the muddy lanes despite the weather, one is aware of the arrival of Spring. The catkins have been noticeably bright and a thrush is singing its heart out in one of the tall trees.

Loweswater Church yard has been covered in snowdrops.

There is now a blue carpet of crocus and the daffodils are not far behind.

It won’t be too long until we start seeing lambs locally, I did see some bouncing around in a field as I drove over towards the coast last week. In the meantime Sean brings a smile to all our faces.
