Near Sawrey

Sunday, May 27, 2007

A dry but cool day, the May Fayre celebrations seemed to be lucky with the weather, we were supposed to have torrential rain and high winds today, what do these forecasters know.
Hill Top was very busy and sold out of tickets at about 3:15pm we then went quiet and finished early.

We went a quick walk before tea down to Esthwaite Water and the wind was bitter, you can tell it's a Bank Holiday by the number of children down at the Estwaite farm holiday flats, it is a brilliant location for families with so much outside space for the kids.

Lorna rang Helen tonight, she and her husband Tony are coming up to Sawrey next week, they are staying with us for 3 nights then staying with our neighbour Elizabeth.

I missed the procession going by but luckily Denis was out with his camera and took these pictures just before they set off.

We have just recieved the following e-mail and could not resist sharing it

Dear Robert and Helen,

We are home in London at last, pausing for a night in Kilburn, Yorkshire, to see "the Mouseman" and his wares.
We have had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in "the Lakes", due in no small measure to your superb hospitality and facilities! Whilst everyone identifies your fabulous breakfasts and there is no doubt about that, we would like to thank you both (and Mum and Dad) for your thoughtful and caring approach, at all times, to us and the other guests.....customer service (as they say) at its best! You have a unique business and we loved both the exceptional bathroom facility and the exceptional lounge with it's luxurious furniture and log fire. All in all it has been a very special holiday.

Given a fair wind, we shall be back!

Thank you again and have a good summer.

John and rosemary

What a nice message.
