House and Garden

We have combined the house and garden in the blog as they flow together, so whether it’s a newly decorated room or time for planting veg, we’ll pop things we hope you’ll find interesting here!
January 2020 has been a busy month decorating one of the bedrooms and it’s en-suite and we are delighted with the result. The wallpaper we eventually chose (though we looked at many) was our first choice, we should have gone on instinct, but we continued to just ‘check’! It’s by an artist called Mark Hearld, from York, the name is Harvest Hare and we feel it fits well into our countryside surroundings. We hope you like it too.

Well time has moved on, rather slowly at times as we come to terms with what has happened world wide over the last few weeks. As I write this I hope you are well and starting to consider when you may take that short break away, hopefully in North Yorkshire! Obviously we don’t know when we’ll open our lovely b&b again but we have been busying away mainly in the garden as the weather has been great. I’m often chasing my tail to get the vegetable garden up and running but this year, I have been given plants from friends in the village and sown seeds so it’s springing into life. I’ll start popping some photo’s on here as things progress!

See the chickens enjoying some early morning May sunshine!

The veg are growing! A blustery day in mid May.

I’m sure many of you will have spent more time in your gardens, just like us over the last few weeks, and fortunately the weather during this time has been great! Here are a few photo’s of the garden which we hope you’ll enjoy!

A short video of how the veg patch is progressing!


We are very fortunate to be able to socially distance guests by setting up this table for 2 in the sunroom and on a sunny morning, what a lovely place to enjoy breakfast!

July 2021 and we had some lovely images taken of our guest bedrooms and the back of the house. We were busy behind the scenes leading up to reopening in May 21 following the lockdown and so some redecorating and a super patio was laid in the March.

October and we are still enjoying colour in parts of the garden, this is the view from our breakfast room.

November and the garden is quietening down for winter.

Windy weather and we have an abundance of apples!

Our fire pit, wrap up in blankets, enjoy a warming drink and gaze up at the stars!! We have big skies here in North Yorkshire!!
