Hints of Summer!

As you’ll be aware, we’re still CLOSED indefinitely, until the government tells us otherwise.

If you’ve already booked a holiday with us in 2020, you will have received several emails at the end of March letting you know what you can do if you want to TRANSFER your reservation and what will happen if you CANCEL it. Our phone line is currently open between 10 am and 3 pm daily. If you call outside these hours, please leave a message with your full name, contact number, reservation number and state whether or not you would like to Transfer your booking. You can find the most up to date information on the situation HERE.

Unusually for this time of year, we are enjoying our patio garden! Normally, we’re too busy to sit outside or sit around for long.

Everything’s been growing greener and brighter since my last post. We bought flower seeds way back in January, before any mention of lockdown was heard. We’ve found the cheap seeds from Lidl work tremendously well in our garden! Though I think the 80% success rate in germination comes from our clement weather here in the South West!

The Whitespoon plants are now flowering prolifically and the new purple-flowered plant (no idea where it came from – we didn’t sow/plant it!) has new blooms on it every day! The roses have blown already by the front door, but, the peach coloured rose has dozens of buds! When that rose is blooming properly, I’ll ask Simon to lean out of the window in Room Three to take a picture of it.

The nasturtiums continue to bloom vigorously with all different colours and shades. And the little purple alyssum (?) in the front trough shows no sign of dying yet. (It’s been blooming now for 9 months!) I love the mixture of greenness and colour in the spring, and summer does appear to be coming on apace. Last week the temperature reached 25 degrees on the patio!

(I’d love to grow veggies but our front patio is all the open space we have. Despite lockdown, there is still a lot of traffic on Beach Road, and often, people sit in their cars outside the B&B with the engine idling, which isn’t ideal when you want to eat what’s growing in your garden!)

Hope you are all keeping well! We’ll update you here and via our NEWSLETTER when we know we’re allowed to open once more. Stay safe!
