Autumn Mists and Winter warmers

Hello!!
What an amazing Summer we have had! Superb sun,horrendous rain and the beauty of the Peak District in which to experience it all.Lots of lovely guests…families with children,couples celebrating weddings,anniversaries and couples celebrating the birth of their new baby…and joy upon joy,bringing their Very new baby with them.Thank you.
We have a new gardener,Paul and his son, Bradley. Good job done,but now stopped for the Winter due to torrential rain.
They were due to finish anyway for the Winter, but the rain brought that forward,and Ben,well he has finished till the Spring also,but he will return to start the painting and refurbishments.
My eldest son has gone to live and work in Australia, soooo,the ‘Mother-hen’ mode has kicked in.BUT that is what we raised them to do isn’t it? To leave….but to go to the other side of the world…?Might be something I said !!!But Good Luck to him and his loved one…

What is happening at present? Well,1/2 term has happened and Hallowe’en has been and gone with guests enjoying both.
The weather has been very good between the storms so guests have been able to enjoy the beauty of Chatsworth, Buxton,Tissington village,Youlgreave village with it’s famous Well-dressings,the Porter’s Way and Robin Hood Stride Rocks, as seen on TV last week with Christine Blakely. ( The Rocks are just across the fields from the Secret )
Things are getting ready for Christmas and New Year,with Bakewell and the surrounding villages holding Christmas Markets and festivities,and Chatsworth and Haddon, with their celebrations.For the children, Peak Rail’s Santa Express and the Tram Museum and Gulliver’s Kingdom. What delights !!
