Shining Rubies

Another fantastic day of sunshine here in Alton! We've been soaking up the rays again in our garden at The Malthouse. At this rate we're are going to look like we've been on holiday ourselves - no chance until the winter!

Here is one of the latest additions to our garden, a lovely clematis called "Ruby Wedding". It was Owen & Sandra's 40th Wedding Anniversary in May this year so we couldn't resist buying this plant. The beautiful weather we've been enjoying at our b&b has brought out some fantastic flowers.

The clematis is in a lovely spot at the front of the house, nice and shady in the morning but by the afternoon very warm. It must be suiting "Ruby" as there are lots more buds getting ready to open into flowers.

Hope your enjoying nice weather wherever you are!

In the PINK

Our guests were tickled PINK this weekend with their visit to Alton Towers Theme Park!
All the guests staying at our bed and breakfast in Alton went to the Pink concert at Alton Towers on Sunday.
Most of our visitors decided to walk the one mile to Alton Towers to avoid the long wait to get off the car park at the end of the night. As soon as the concert ended they were back to The Malthouse in no time at all!
There were lots of tired but very happy faces at breakfast this morning. Everyone said they had really enjoyed the concert.
We hope that the theme park host more events like this in the future.
Well done to Alton Towers and Pink of course!

Blooming Lovely

Hope you are enjoying the same warm weather that we are having in Alton at the moment. Our garden here at The Malthouse looks just lovely, all the plants are looking at their very best. Thought you would like to a few pictures that we have taken today.

Here are the children from the Davies family keeping Sandra entertained on the swings!
The family stayed at our bed and breakfast last year and have come back to see us again with their new addition. He's just gorgeous! Hope to see them again next year. Don't forget to bring your washing up gloves next time kids!

Good luck to the England Football Team for their next world cup match against Algeria on Friday.

We have our England flag and banners up at The Malthouse ready to cheer the lads on.

It's great to see so many houses and cars in Alton and the surrounding area showing their support for England.

Lets hope Friday's match is a win for England, fingers crossed!

June at The Malthouse

Thought you might like to see a few pictures that we have taken today here at The Malthouse. Everywhere is looking particularly pretty as we have put out our hanging baskets and tubs this week.

The weather in Alton has been lovely and warm this week but today has been very odd. We had some rain overnight and more showers this morning, then a few hours of sunshine in the middle of the day followed by more rain this afternoon! What a mixed bag. Fingers crossed that weather improves again.

Our cat Smudge can't stand the rain, he really hates it if his feet get wet. Here he is this afternoon sheltering from the rain. Poor Smudge, he is really hoping for better weather!

The rhododendrons at the front of The Malthouse are just beautiful when they flower in early June.

Why not come and see for yourself! To check bed and breakfast availability telephone 01538 703273. Last minute bookings are always welcome.

Don't forget if your 2 for 1 vouchers if you're planning a visit to Alton Towers.
