Hope you all had a lovely christmas!

Merry Christmas!

It's been a busy christmas here at Abbot Park Farm fuelled by copious amounts of mulled wine and far too much lovely food! 

It's very wintery up here now and the wild winds blew down our phone line the other week so we haven't had internet for a while!

We hope that you've all had a festive time and are looking forward to new years eve.

We had better go and get on now, it's no good sitting here eating  parsnips crisps! We have got over 25 mountain bikers coming for their christmas meal here tomorrow so we have lots of food to prepare!

Enjoy our photos,
Bye for now, 
Carole and co...

Dear Guests
I think summer as arrived. The sun is out and the birds are singing it is a good weather forcast for the next few days,so I am going to enjoy it. Jeff the sheep dog has been in the wars he has got a broken leg , after an operation to put a pin in and plate, it he seems to be getting back to his old self.  The cows have all had there calves now and at last we have turned the cows out into the fields. If any guests read this blog that have visited maybe you could add some photos . I think I will get a cup of coffee, and go and sit in the sun, and may be take a book to read, it is to nice to work or should I go and mow the campsite grass, is any body coming camping this weekend ?
bye for now

Dear Guests
I thought better weather was on the way when I saw the swallows had come back on the 12th of may,but I was wrong. Friday night the ground was white with hail stones.Sunday I heard the cuckoo, which always makes me think of summer, and the weather forcast  is loooking quite good. We have had a few brave campers this year and one was  from france in March he was brave. I have just turned the cows and calves out, they have had a mad half hour galloping round the field it seems like it as been the longest winter ever.Coffee time over ,off to worm some sheep.
bye for now

Dear Guests I hope the weather is warmer with you. We have still got snow where it drifted and the easterly wind makes it very cold. The pictures of the completed camping barn are below and when you get the woodburner lit they are very cosy.We are still busy with the sheep lambing and cows calving. The months just seem to fly round, and we hope to see you soon Bye for now carole

Dear Guests we have had a change of weather snow. we have had a few inches for a week but last night we got more than our share I think around 6" . We are now snowed in and nothing looks very happy in the animal world. The camping barn is coming on. I have been having fun trying to find comfy mattresses for the beds, the floor as been tiled ,the upstairs is finished and painted,we are waiting for the plumber then the wet room can be tiled. The outside stone facing as been started but the rain and last weeks frost makes it hard work but they are getting there. I started writing this at 10.00am and it was lovely and sunny it is now 17.00 and pouring down, the weather is back to normal. I took some photos on my phone today I will try and upload them later. I cant wait for summer long hot sunny days no rain in sight.You can always dream Bye for now carole
