We have had a great summer, we started the season by entering our newly renovated ‘Dale View Barn’ into the prestigious North York Moors National Park Design Awards and ‘WOW we won!’ (Beacon View Barn won in 2012)
We have welcomed guests from as far as Japan, America, Australia and Europe and hosted Yorkshire family gatherings with some relatives living as near as Danby! 
The heather has been stunning, Curlews and Lapwings have been in great voice.
Our cuckoo returned after an absence of 2 years. Dove No’s have increased steadily. 
Rafe our third grandchild was born in May, it has been a wonderful year so far.
