Here we are in May already - I cannot believe how quickly the time is passing.
We have welcomed more visitors to the campsite during the last month so it has been quite a busy period alongside the work needed on the farm as well. We have been busy maintaining the hedgerows and have planted lots of hedging plants during this weekend.
This month's photos were again taken by our regular guest and I think you will agree that the true essence of the Lake District countryside has been captured (photos show lambs and Lucy the horse at Abbot Park and views of Oxen Park and Rusland). One of the photos is of a monitoring aircraft from Cranfield Research Institute monitoring the ash cover in the atmosphere over Bethecar Moor. It had been to Manchester and was going north to Glasgow and the West Coast of Scotland when all the aircraft in the UK were grounded.
Although the weather is cool for May we have had some beautiful sunny and fine days which makes for ideal walking conditions so we hope you will visit us soon.
