Whitstone Farm diary
Covid-19 Well we REOPENED _ Yippee. Stay safe and keep well……..In line with the Government Directives Whitstone Farm re-opened on to visitors from the May 17th 2021. The health and safety of our guests is paramount and we know all have understood the need the obey the ‘isolating and stay at home’ message. We have always taken the need for exceptional cleaning as normal, between every set of guests, beds are stripped off including mattress and pillow protectors,, deep cleaning has always been done in bathrooms and bedrooms and in all public areas. We will now ensure we have time, between each booking, to do deep cleaning for the ultimate safety of our guests. It has been lovely seeing guests enjoying our very special garden. We have also been advised by the National Garden Scheme That we may re-open our garden to visitors and are doing so with ‘visits by appointment (tel;- 01626 832258) and hope greet visitors over the next few months. The garden is a peaceful haven for humans , animals and birds so come and enjoy ! You can also make contact by email klbbovey@gmail.com Autumn has now arrived, leaves everywhere along with the stunning colours and wonderful bark formations. It’s a busy time for any gardener and there are no exceptions here. Constant leaf clearing, roses to be pruned, hedges to be cut, spring bulbs to plant, bonfires….garden furniture to be put away until next spring etc. Tractor mower to have it’s annual service - thank goodness for our wonderful Barney groundsman extraordinaire . The next bit will be deciding what projects we could do in 2022 and what seeds we need to order Apart from the plants and trees of course we have numerous birds who visit our garden, we recently watched a Sparrowhawk on patrol and the buzzards wheel around overhead in the sunshine ! The owls have resumed there evening calling across the garden just as it falls dusk. Robins claiming their territory, wrens searching for a warm overwinter spot . Needless to say our cat, Woody is now spending more time indoors in any warm spot he can find. We remain open until 10th December then will close until late January. We have already started taking bookings for 2022 - no deposit needed
