We have had a grand spell of weather and finally all the cattle are out on grass. Lambing is hopefully finished but you never know we may still get some surprises.
The tennis court is being used by guests which is great, they always comment on the fabulous views on court.
Silage being made today and more to be baled on Monday.
Lets hope for more sunshine

Well into lambing now and well over half lambed. The weather has finally improved and the ewes and lambs are basking in 20+ degrees. What a difference it makes to them.
The grass is growing too so cattle will get out to fields tomorrow. They will love getting outside onto the grass.
We will be saying goodbye to our lambing helpers at the end of the week - Neil and Michael who have kept positive through the bad weather.

Another covering of snow for us overnight. Enough to go sledging!
Why not book a short break for January or February and put your feet up in front of a cosy fire.
