"A very big thank you to you both. Such a great welcome and place to rest and chill out. Julie and David made our short stay a memory that will stay a long time. David went above the call of duty to help me track down my great uncle's movements in the Great War. Julie and Dave we will be back . All the best to you both . A personal touch right down to the hugs and good byes. Thank you so much. James and Paul from Derby, England, March 2014"What our guests say

Grodek by Georg Trakl, German War Poet.
At evening the woods of autumn are full of the sound
Of the weapons of death, golden fields
And blue lakes, over which the darkening sun
Rolls down; night gathers in
Dying recruits, the animal cries
Of their burst mouths.
103 years ago, The Somme battle raged on for the 3rd month. This September there is peace, there has been lovely sunny weather though the month has ended with rain and breezes. Most crops are in, save some maize and potatoes and chard.
Views of Mametz Wood show the first tinges of autumn colours in the trees. The starlings are gathering and the red squirrels in Newfoundland Park are busy collecting winter provisions. Above all our guests have continued to bring their wonderful stories.
