We were so pleased to see that the four Mistlethrush chicks from the apple tree nest have successfully fledged!

Clipping time for Pip...before

pip 1

The lovely Summer warm weather has now arrived. This means that it`s time for Pip to be clipped out for Summer!

His coat is so thick that he needs to have a haircut at the beginning of each Summer, so that he doesn`t get too hot.

This is Pip at 10am.

We have been open one year!!

Mistle Thrush nesting



We were pleased to see this Mistle Thrush has nested in one of the low apple trees in the orchard, here at Red Hall Farm.

This is the second nest that we have seen. The previous nest having aready fledged three young chicks in April.

Beautiful location, very central (we visited Penrith, Carlisle, Gretna Green and Keswick).
The property has been converted to a high standard and beds were comfortable.
Lots of nice touches such as jam, eggs and cake upon arrival and Joanne even put the log burner on for us before we arrived so that the cottage was warmed up for us.
There is a lot of information from tourist areas locally, which is extremely helpful if you are not familiar with the area.
Lovely relaxing break, hope to visit again soon.
