The Birds and Bees

dscf0701We are now well into our eighth season at Bridge Cottages. Bookings for this year have been very good with many of our regulars returning including a number who have visited at least once each year since we started back in 2006.

Since our last Blog entry at the end of 2012 (how time flies) we have continued to endeavour to keep the cottages well maintained. A new central heating boiler has been installed at no.4. The sash windows in no.3 have all been repaired or replaced and also draught proofed. Sue was also busy with her paint brush over the winter months.
On the wildlife front the the recent highlights have been the increased number of sightings of red kites locally. At Bridge Cottages a pair of nuthatches are nesting in the old acacia tree in our next door neighbours front garden and there is a tree bumblebee nest under the decking surrounding the pine trees at the bottom of no.4’s garden.
Guests have spoken well of meals they have enjoyed at the Wiveton Bell. Byfords in Holt remains a firm favourite with all. We like the Dun Cow at Salthouse which has been transformed since new owners took over a couple of years ago. Great food and the best view from a pub garden anywhere along the coast. The Wiveton Hall Cafe is also blessed with lovely views and scrumptious cakes!
The weather has also been very kind so far this spring and everything looks set for a perfect summer in North Norfolk.
