Firstly an apology for such a long break such the last blog, due to mainly to a busy time of year and not enough hours in the day! However I have now settled down with a bit of time to update you all. Despite being busy we have been managing quite a few walks in this glorious part of the world and a wonderful picnic at Valley of Rocks at sunset.

The colours on Exmoor never cease to amaze us at this time of year. Just minutes from our house the walks provide surprises around every corner. It is at this time of year that walking our spaniel Rosie is such a delight, especially amongst the patchwork of gorse and heather.

We are lucky enough to be able to walk onto Hollerday Hill from our garden behind the house. The garden is a challenging project being on a very steep hill. However this year some of our hard work with a great deal of help from our gardener is paying off!

With all the rain we have had the hydrangeas are at their best…..

            

On those rare occasions when we have time and the weather is just right we head off to the Valley of Rocks for the sunset, after all it is only 5 minutes away!

On this particular evening the weather was wonderful and we all enjoyed it. Some of you may have read in the press about the goats there, they were enjoying it too!
