2019 Season

Apologies for the hiatus in updates-we’ve had a funny old season.

Bookings at Christmastime were 40% down compared to 2018 and by July, the situation had barely improved.  We frequently had more staff working in the bar/kitchen than customers and it was a very worrying time.  Just as the campsite started to fill up, John spent 8 days in hospital with a nasty eye infection and although now back at home, he’s still on antibiotics and eye drops and can’t see out of his right eye!  Luckily, our fabulous campers stepped up and really helped out, moving caravans, shopping, leading Sarah’s weekly walks, gardening and so on.  And even now, we are regularly helped in the kitchen by a team of volunteer washer-uppers!  Ironically, we are busier now than we were in July and we’re cooking 20-40 meals each evening.  We've started our Eat-ups menu and we think we’ll have eaten everything up by Sunday .. when we move into the last week, low season, and we can start winding down.  We’ll keep you posted with our news over the winter!
