What's happening

We continue to use our Kerry Hill fleeces to make duvets and use as insulation for our refurbished bedrooms and new Update office. We hope to be printing a  textile for curtaining based on the fleeces and eyes and markings of these special sheep.

Cliff Top. We think everything is in good order. 

East Hott Bank  Now there is a door from the sitting room out onto a west facing deck complete with glazed cabin, to better enjoy the beautiful surrounding views to the Crags and Lough.

Overcliffe Has been repainted outside and is now the pink house on the beach rather than the white one! The ensuite bedroom downstairs has been redecorated as well as the sitting room.

Queen Street Anti Seagull spikes have been fitted on the Penthouse Roof so no more snow-shoe, tap dancing Seagulls!! The Pizza oven door has been made and fitted.

Croft Cottage  This 2 bedroom Stable Block conversion with two sunny terraces and private parking overlooks fabulous gardens and is on the Dales Way. Already proving an international hit! Galvanised steel gates with inserts of Agate slices allude to the flow of the adjacent River Wharfe; to commemorate the Queen's 90th birthday.

The Cottage, Dunstarn can also be booked through Air B and B. We have experienced 2 outdoor theatre events and a promenade theatre event and our rare breed Cleveland Bay Holly gave birth to Duncan in  Spring 2020. Lambing came and went in March lockdown and Haymaking in July 2020.

What's happening in the future.

More outside than in at EHB. A Moon Walk with Ghost Birch trees underplanted with cyclamen. An Observatory built to take advantage of EHB unique position following the Dark Sky National Park initiative. The Sill is open and worth a visit.

Several large paintings by Artist Kitty North have been completed, showcasing the unique postions and atmospheres of several of the holiday cottages.

The refurbishment of our most recent acquisition is complete and let for 12 months. We have developed  the 'interesting' design thread  and  reconfiguring the rooms, planted an orchard and developed a wild flower meadow  and lily pond. Watch this space. 

We hope to obtain planning permission for the 'mini stone barn' at EHB and create a single bedroom wildlife viewing barn.
