Back in lockdown for Autumn
Mowbarton Shepherd's Hut and Barn shut for November thanks to Covid...
sheep share the field
MAY DAY DISCOUNT! Noticed this morning that I have a couple of un-booked weekends in May and June. So I've decided to offer a 10% last minute discount: book a three-night break (or longer) for any available slot between now and the end of June and I'll give you a 10% discount. (Quote 'Grebe' when booking - see below!)
We spent the last bit of April, a beautifully sunny evening, discovering some as yet unexplored (by us) paths in Westhay Moor wildlife reserve. It was a wee bit cold, even for the birds, but we did spot a beautiful Great Crested Grebe swimming and diving elegantly through the black peaty water and of course we heard our friendly bittern in the reeds. Still a magical sound. No cuckoo as yet but others have heard it. We then visited a pub we've been meaning to try for ages: The Bird in Hand this side of Westhay, less than five minutes drive. The food looked great so we booked for Bank Holiday Monday.
AND - the sheep are back in our field, the vines are showing their buds...Let's hope the two facts are unconnected and will remain that way. Fingers crossed for the electric fence!
