Making the Barn a home!

The inside of the Barn is starting to come together. We're hoping to combine the old and new including the original dove cote that has some new residents making a nest. We've got crows building a nest in the dove cote in the Barn - not sure they've chosen the most restful home as they're startled and fly away every time we open the back door of the house - obviously didn't do their research before moving in!                                                     

Taking Shape

There's been lots of activity in the barn over the last few months.                                                                                       As well as John working on the structure we've had an electrician, joiner, plumbers, and plasterers working hard to make the interior ready for the kitchen and bathroom fittings.  So I'm looking forward to the next phase of getting the fittings and furnishings in.  

Eldroth at Easter

Here are some ideas of what to do over the Easter break:  

  • Ingleton Easter Egg Hunt
  For more information see the Yorkshire Dales website: http://www.yorkshiredales.org.uk/visit-the-dales/events-calendar/whats-on/events/external-events/2017/ingleton-easter-egg-hunt      
  • Egg-cellent Easter Trail, Hawes
    For more information see the Dales Countryside Museum website: http://www.dalescountrysidemuseum.org.uk/whats-on/events/dcm-events/2017/egg-cellent-easter-trail        
  • Enjoy Easter in the beautiful surroundings of the Kilnsey Estate.
Little visitors can follow the Spring Trail to win a chocolate treat and help feed the lambs throughout the holidays. There's plenty more to keep the whole family entertained over Easter weekend with activities such as face painting, pony rides, duck racing, and traditional egg decorating and rolling. Over the weekend we’ll also be lighting the crackling Easter campfire for chocolate pancakes.       http://www.yorkshiredales.org.uk/visit-the-dales/events-calendar/whats-on/events/external-events/2017/easter-in-the-dales?SQ_CALENDAR_DATE=2017-04-17
