How delighed are we that we will soon be greeting guests again! The weather has been a tad chilly over the last day or two but Spring is definately here and how we wish people could see the lovely daffodils and tulips.
As soon as we realised that visistors were not going to be able to join us for April we decided to use the time doing some upgrading!! The Tree Howf has had a gorgeous additon of a new sink, oak work top and a fab wee cooker. It now has a wood burning stove with glass door so you can sit round the flames in the evening. As I write it is having a new hand made bed installed.
The Wee Howf has had a full internal re piant and is looking great and all ready for its first visitors of the year. We really understimate the Wee Howf - its more of a Tree House with its huge stilts standing over the burn and its veranda up in the Trees - to make sure people can enjoy that element of it we are putting a table and chairs on the veranda at the back so you can enjoy breakfast sitting up in the Trees looking over the Ochils.
The Muckle Howf hasn't been left out of this make over month with new curtains on the go, a new decking around the hot tub and some lovely new outside furniture in the pipe line.
Not sure we will be siting down much this month!!
Of course no blog at this time would be complete without news of the Whisky Howf - almost finsihed, some things still to go in including the glass top for the Whisky Barrel table. Here are a few pictures to tempt you - we will have some proffessional pictures soon - these are just from our phone!
More photos coming soon! Keep your eye on the Whisky Howf page.
Our animals all think spring is coming too! Two of the geese are sitting on eggs so hopefully some goslings soon. Lots of birds around too and this year two swans stayed with us for several weeks. The red kites have been over the Tree Howf nearly everyday, the Oyster Catchers are back and there was a Curlew in the field at the weekend!
We don't have any lambs of our own due this year but are hoping to add two coloured Ryeland lambs to our crew - once they have been born and are old enough to leave their Mum...
We are really looking forward to the 26th and the arrival of our visitors - think we will be having a glass of fizz that night!!
Ian, Heather & crew.
