Happy Birthday Smudge!

Our cat Smudge is 10 today. This morning one of his friends (our dog Poppy) joined him for a birthday treat of scrambled egg and sausage.

Here they are tucking in!

Alton Towers for Over 60's / Senior Citizens / OAP's / Grandparents / Concessions

Deciding on a title for this blog post has been difficult as you can see.
We welcome guests of all ages to stay at our B&B so, the last thing we want to do is cause offence to anyone!
However, we've just discovered that Alton Towers offer 50% off for the over 60's and wanted to share this information.
In the past plenty of our guests have told us that an older relation wanted to join them but decided not to come as the theme park didn't offer them a reduced rate so, we hope this information is useful.

Visit for more details.

Alton has a Fine Festival

What a fantastic weekend we've just had in Alton. Beer, classic cars, great music and plenty of sunshine - perfect!

After a busy Sunday mornings at our B&B we took some time out in the afternoon to enjoy the music and of course beer at The Royal Oak Pub just down the road.

Here is The Scott Ralph Trio in action. What a great set the band played, we thoroughly enjoyed it!

On the 17 & 18 June 2017 a beer and classic car will take place in Alton.
For a small village Alton (where our bed & breakfast is located) has quite a few pubs, 5 in total.
A weekend of fine weather for the festival would be great so, fingers crossed!

Sunny Alton

Its been lovely weather in Alton for a number of days now - just what we like!

The fine weather has allowed us to get lots of jobs done outside. In between our usual grass cutting we've been tidying up the woodwork on our greenhouses, weeding, pruning, putting out tubs with bedding plants in and in between jobs having a cup of tea or two!

Here is a picture that we've taken of the some of the rhododendron at the front of the house. To be honest there are not as many flowers on them as there usually are. In the Autumn last year we gave these shrubs a major prunning, they needed it. As a result it may be next year before we see plenty of flowers but there you go!
