Alton Turns into a Winter Wonderland

We went out for a walk today and couldn't resist sharing this beautiful photo.  It was great to wrap up warm, get some fresh air and watch our dog Poppy enjoy herself.  Snow fell in Alton on Boxing Day making it look and feel extremely festive! 
We hope that Christmas has been a special time for you and your family and wish everyone we know a happy and healthy 2015. x

Holiday Tails

Sorry it's been quite a while since our last blog!  Our excuse is that we've been busy taking care of  guests staying here at The Malthouse.  Following a hectic season we went away for a well deserved holiday.  We decided to go to the seaside so that we could take our dog Poppy along too.  She loved Skegness beach, here she is on the sand.
Now, everyone in Lincolnshire is VERY friendly and Poppy is welcome in many of the shops. 
BUT there are non more friendly than two lovely ladies at a market stall near Fantasy Island in Skegness.  The stall is called 'Paws a While' here is Poppy modelling one of the creations they sell.  Doesn't she look gorgeous? 
We spent ages looking at the pet stall choosing several items including a new perfume for Poppy called Kennel No 5!  Well a girl has to be pampered and treat herself when she's on holiday!!!
Bye for now, back to the decorating.  Lots to do ready for the 2015 season!
