Our first lambs of the year were born this week. These cute triplets have been moved with their mum to the solar park where they will be safe from predators and able to shelter from the sun and rain under the panels.

Following the announcement from the FM today from the 26th April travel will be permitted to and from the rest of the UK and I can take single household/ extended household bookings from the UK. (Level 3)

Indicative future dates would suggest that bookings are permitted as follows. 
From 17th May- Level 2-  up to 4 people from 2 household/extended household bookings (Coach House, Chauffeur’s)
From 7th June -Level 1-  up to 6 people from 3 household/extended household bookings (Coach House)
From end June Level 0 – up to 8 people from 4 households/extended household bookings (Coach House)
Children under 12 not included in the count (unless from a separate household)
Please note that as in house social distancing may still be required, the Studio, West Lodge and the Stables will remain as single household properties.

There was some indication that we would hope to move out of the levels system by July/August allowing larger Kinblethmont House bookings however we will need to wait for the data to confirm this.

We have been making some improvements to the lower ground floor in Kinblethmont House. It is a great place for children to let off steam or for adults to kick back and watch the footie! It opens up onto the terrace for relaxed BBQs and croquet matches.

On the farm this week we are planting our Golden Promise malting barley. We have been growing it for generations and it is the chief ingredient of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord ale. Now doesn’t that make you feel thirsty!

We are delighted with our new recycled plastic bench at top of Kinblethmont hill. The view is stunning and it is the perfect place for our guests to chill and watch the sun set.

Following the announcement today it looks like there may be some re-opening from the end of April which would be great.  I have quite a lot of bookings for guests hoping to come but also some availability why don’t you check it out – spring is my favourite time of year at Kinblethmont – all colours of green in the trees and birdsong everywhere.  If you cant come – you can reschedule or get your deposit returned.

While this virus is still around our leisure activities have been curtailed a bit so now is the time to hunker down and enjoy some quality time with your family close to home. 

We love the Danish concept of Hygge – the celebration of all things cosy, warm and snuggly during the winter months so why not enjoy it while it lasts and with any luck the world will be back to its noisy craziness before too long.
