We’ve been busy refurbishing Manesty’s kitchen and have installed a lovely new wood burner in the old inglenook fireplace. There’s now a comfy sitting area by the fire as well as toasty underfloor heating, new tiled floor and a brand new cooker, fridge and separate freezer. It now really is the heart of the home!
We’ve also replaced Cocklety How Stable Loft’s front door. Where before there was wibbly glass and painted wood there are now lovely big glass double doors opening onto the patio. You can now see right across the valley!
We’ve had a very late spring, but the advantage has been the long bluebell and blossom displays – the best in years – and the rhododendrons have yet to peak. Our guests were blessed with glorious weather for both the long weekends in May, and the birds are nesting all over the grounds – wagtails, robins and swallows to name just those I can see from the office window! And as well as our resident tawny own, we’ve had a barn owl patrolling the field opposite Manesty.
We hope to see you here at Manesty soon.
