Anticipation and Expectancy

As the month of March rolls on, all over the dale, there is an atmosphere of anticipation and expectancy in the air.  Both the farming community and hospitality sector are gearing up for the busiest time of the year.

Quietly and behind closed doors B&B and holiday cottage owners are beavering away ensuring every inch of their properties are in tip top order in readiness for guests coming for a relaxing holiday, a stop-over during a long distance walk, cycling events and more - the list is endless.

Pry House Farm and Hillcrest Cottage are no exception.  Stuart from OvenSOS North Yorkshire has been to give my hard working ovens a thorough clean.  What a good job he does - I can recommend.

David the decorator came a few weeks ago to smarten up both houses (as he has done since 2005). What would I do without him?  This year I had the dairy painted and took the opportunity to  reorganise and re-stock.  There has been much talk recently about stock piling food because of Brexit however, living in such a remote place as Pry House Farm, keeping the shelves and freezers full is normal practice for me! 

As for the farming community getting busier - more of that in my next post.
Coming soon!
