4th of July !!!

Hello everyone.
The weather is glorious here in the Peaks.
Perfect weather for BBQs and cheminieres and just sitting and watching the world go by.
Honeymooners have found us on the net, and those that have already been seem to have enjoyed themselves with the peace and seclusion, and being in their own private hideaway.
The wildlife are out in force, with the deer enjoying the roses and the pansies this year. Last year , geraniums were their food of choice.
The grass is growing apace and the paddock is VERY long. Ben is cutting it this week. He has been silaging whilst the weather has been good.
Peak Park is promoting the Electric Bicycle Net Work ( see them at the Bakewell Show ) and Peak Serenity is a recognised Charging Station. So, come and have a coffee while your battery charges. Bikes can be hired from Carsington Water, Blakelow Farm Cottages, Monsal Head, etc.,.
Cyclists are enjoying the lanes around the ‘Secret’, and finding new and different trails and places to eat.
The Well- dressings and carnivals and festivals are in full swing.
Youlgreave and Bakewell Carnivals are in 3 weeks time, and Bakewell Show is at the beginning of August.
If you haven’t already booked your holidays, now is the time to do it.
Pikehall Races are next Sunday, 10th July.
And of coarse, Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are open for people to enjoy.
The Serenity Coffee Shop is visited by walkers, cyclists etc., between about 1pm and 5pm,( altho’ we open at 11am) and our guests enjoy lunch or coffee as well.
Well folks, I will leave you for the time being and check in again shortly.
