How can it be May already?

Well it is May and I am thinking how can this be?  Where has January, February, March & April gone!

We were lucky enough to take a break in April and started off in Thailand then got a tall ship to Singapore.  We absolutely loved the tall ship and would say to anyone that it is a fabulous experience.

Tall ship

We had an amazing week and once it was finished went onto Brisbane in Australia to see family.  Well enough of what I have been doing now what has been happening at the cottages?  Well School House Cottage has been really doing well with bookings and we have had a number of repeat bookings which to us is great as people want to visit the Forest of Bowland and Lancashire.

Well the tulips are out in force at the moment on the Newton village green and once again brings so many photographers out and lots of people stop and take photos!



When we got back from our break the first thing I did was check the guest book to check out the reviews – well they were as fabulous as ever and shows that we have great people around us helping us out.  The Parkers Arms has been mentioned more than once in the reviews which is really nice for them also.

Our other cottage in Gisburn, Church View has also been doing really well with lots of bookings.  I am hoping that we start to get some repeat guests and will keep an eye on this.  We have installed a NEST for the heating.  Our guests love the easy way it works and we can also turn the heating up before guests arrive and turn the heat down when our guests have left.

The cottages are both doing really well with their bookings  which is really good and the reviews are fabulous so I think we must be doing a lot right!

The Parkers Arms has been winning more awards and has been rebranded.  They also now have Lunch and Dinner offers 3 courses from Wednesday to Friday and Saturday and Sunday £28 which is fabulous value.
