Hi all, i thought i'd write a post as long time no pics so i took my camera to the valley today to feed horses. i also realise i'm never in a pick so here is one of me too!

Fed the boys and couldn't find Suzie but found her alone in the woods. Luckily she could have a nice meal without being pushed off by the others.

I walked up to the valley hut to give it an airing. Amazingly it was quite warm but lit a fire to help it air a bit. The woodland one i need to keep an eye on more as more likely to get damp.

Recently we've had a few request for 1 nights but we are still strictly a 2 night min. You need at least a whole day here to enjoy the space plus all your time would mainly be in the dark!

I've also had request for discounts. As many of you know that returners get discounts and that's how i work now. I understand that many others have lost their work.

Hope all of your are well 🙂 Interesting time with the Great conjunction coming on the 21st!

The Great Reset! Covid not being the cause but the opportunity!

Not sure we'll have a business any longer if people won't come. I knew this was going to happen but when i stood next to the woodland hut yesterday it kind of hit home.

Sending love out to all other businesses affected and anyone who's struggling Be with your families and look after your oldies, don't leave them in isolation. This is the time to use your moral compasses!❤️
