 Happy New Year to all - 2019 is a special year for us it marks our 10th anniversary.

It is hard to believe that it is coming up to 10 years since we first opened the doors and welcomed our first guests, it has just flown by!  We started with just 2 smaller cottages the Forge and the Stables and we now have many more. One of the highlights for us is that over the years we have met so many lovely people.

We hope you have time to join us in 2019


Anniversary 10 years



New resident at Broadgate Farm - as part of the 1918-2018 memorial. All around Walkington a memorial for each man listed on the village War Memorial. Frank Hayton worked at Broadgate Farm before he enlisted, he first lied about his age and joined up at the age of 16. His parents managed to get him sent home from the front but as soon as he reached 18 he enlisted again and a few short months later he lost his life. Frank will be with us until 10th of November when he will move down with all the other memorials to the church for the Remembrance Sunday Service. Well done to Steve Thorp in the village an ex serviceman who has organised these memorials and led the fundraising to make this all possible.

Lambing......  It has been a difficult start for the lambs this year. We started lambing just as the "Beast from the East " hit which meant cold nights out in the lambing shed for Steve and a cold start for the new lambs. As the weather improved we got the ewes and new lambs out into the paddocks, the ewes need some good grass to help ensure that they have enough milk for the lambs. Then came another bad spell of weather, prolonged cold and wet weather was just too much for the little ones so everyone was back in the lambing shed all tucked up. 

They are all out at the moment but in one of the side paddocks so they can get back into the lambing shed if they want a bit of shelter or to sleep on a night. We are so ready for the good weather forecast for next week with rising temperatures coming this weekend. We need a prolonged period with no frosts so the grass can grow!


We have just taken delivery of our fireball - we will be re-landscaping part of the area outside the cottages over the coming weeks and this will be taking pride of place!



And this is the award itself!
