February 2019

Snowdrop planting on 2nd February was a great day, we had a good crowd of people joining us. We managed to plant over 400 snowdrops along the lane that goes past our camping field and we look forward to adding more each year. Snowdrops were planted in memory of loved ones by visitors from Tavistock, Plymouth, Horrabridge and we planted some for friends unable to join us from Reading and Folkestone.

With all the warm weather we have been able to improve the gardens, we have removed several large tree stumps that were causing a trip hazard on the lawn and in the orchard area. We have even been out on the lawnmower to ensure that the camping field is ready for any visitors - we have several bookings for September already this year!

We have also been improving the gates around the grounds, soon they will all be easy to open and close - well that is the hope! Wooden gates have a habit of swelling in the wet weather and then drying out in the summer. The sheep haven’t been helpful either as they enjoy leaning on the gates to see if they can break free!
