With the sun comes a frenzy of activity at Agra Cottage.
We recently received 5 star award from Visit England for our boutique self catering accommodation near Masham, North Yorkshire and this has spurred us into action!
We have already in 2011 welcomed many guests to our North Yorkshire retreat near Masham and here is to welcoming many more.
One of our guests recently left this note in our comments book
“We were looking for the perfect retreat from busy lives..we found it at Agra cottage (after asking a farmer for directions!) We know we had arrived somewhere special when we were greeted by the Grouse, rabbits chickens and ducks! The Cottage is so comfortable, the surroundings so peaceful this has been perfect. What a way to unwind”
Thank you Chris and Chris you were great guests and please come again soon. I know it sounds naff but it does make all the difference when guests connect with the place as we have done.
We have recently joined up with Welcome to Yorkshire and in the coming months will feature on Yorkshire.com
Merlin our Shetland pony has become a dad and mum and baby Merlin doing well.
We have extended our brood to include some lavender Pekin chickens who with their fluffy feet now wander about the place and who produce the most wonderful tiny eggs for our children!!
I have been busy mowing, pruning and weeding. We have also started hardening of the veg we have grown ready for the patch. Our new cutting garden is taking shape, well i have decided where it is going and have prepared the ground. In the greenhouse we have been growing sweet peas for the cottage, and Borage Blue, Heartease and Calendula for edible salads (sounded like a good idea) Guests can look forward to an array of veg and flowers over the summer months.
follow our tweets @agracottage and we will report back soon!
