NEWS and some
coming local events
The back garden has been fenced but please note that keen jumpers and diggers, particularly of the canine variety, will need to be supervised still.
Wi-Fi now available! However, please note that there is no computer - you will need to bring your own laptop.
The Scots Pine at Roman How: sadly our iconic tree found the storms in the winter of 2011/12 just too much and had to be felled. The garden seems very different without it but a metasequoia has been planted and we hope that one day it will be just as splendid.
DEER SIGHTINGS ! It seems the local deer population is becoming bolder; deer always have visited the garden at Roman How from time to time but they are being spotted more frequently now. One was caught peering in the lounge window one evening !
March 2016 saw the official opening of the LAKES AND DALES cycle route; this is a 196 mile cycle route which can be enjoyed in sections too. See www.lakesdalesloop.co.uk
for more information.
Take a trip on the ferry to the western shore of Windermere and visit newly restored CLAIFE VIEWING STATION and its cafe.
