January 2020. Welcome to my new website.

… and I am so proud to have received this award from in such a short time from opening the bed and breakfast in May 2018. Beaming from ear to ear! 😃 looking forward to continuing to achieve these good reviews and a busy 2020 ahead.

October 2019. A Weekend in Kirkby Lonsdale.

The weekend just gone saw me and a girlfriend head to Kirkby Lonsdale to celebrate her birthday in style with an overnight stay at The Snooty Fox and tapas at the fabulous Number 9. What fun.

… It wasn’t all eating and drinking. We made the most of the fine weather with a walk around the town, and no visit to Kirkby Lonsdale would be complete without taking a photograph of Ruskin’s View.
