Good Friday and its no warmer, the snow has about gone and the bitter east wind has dropped slightly, we are full for Easter with just a couple of rooms available Sunday only.
Mr McGregor is sat on the bench raising money for local charities, he is not doing to bad considering the cold.

Friday was awful snowed all day and blowing a hoolie all guests bar one single room managed to get here and as we cleared the car park 3 yes 3 times we were glad the work was not in vain

The hanging baskets are struggling

Wind and snow, get my drift?

Oops someone unknown going to fast a made a mess of the wall

Its been a busy old week with lots of the dreaded cleaning and decorating but we are on the right side now.
There is a move to make some changes to road markings and  signs etc in Sawrey as part of a GoLakes travel initiative, some of the proposals are a bit strange to say the least, the most bizarre  is a set of gates either end of the village with a mock cattle grid,( we dont have any mock cattle!!) Anyway click the link and have a look.

Good news the village shop is re-opening at Easter good luck to the new tenants

A stunning sunny day in the lakes we had not one but two!!! incognito hotel inspectors staying last night, ah well they have a job to do.
After we had the meeting with our guests we made the most f the day with a good walk, this picture is overlooking Pullwood Bay on Windermere.
Tomorrow the project is giving the lounge at Buckle Yeat its annual paint job.
