Dear Guests

February has arrived already! I thought all the snow had gone, but during the middle of last week (3 February) we had another light covering.

Before Christmas, Bethecar Moor Commoner's Association accompanied by Tony Hill (National Park) and willing volunteers (Teresa Morris - Natural England and Miles and Jennifer from the Forestry Commission) had a lovely day planting 500 juniper trees near Dodgson Wood.

Teresa and I returned last week to complete the work.

I have attached some photographs so you can appreciate the magnificent views near to Abbot Park Farm. The views show Coniston Water, Dow Crag, Coniston Old Man, planting juniper trees and canoeing on Coniston Water.

Life is still busy on the farm and we eagerly await the arrival of the lambs.
