Easter ’12

Hello, everyone!  Have you had a good Easter with lots of choccie eggs? Weather has been mixed, here, at the Secret, overcast, a little bit of sun,and, now today,drizzle and  rain.. But..my guests have enjoyed their stay with  welcoming snow , walks in Dovedale and on Kinder Scout, walking the Tissington and Monsal Trails and closer to home, climbing Robin Stride Rocks. Finishing off with a superb meal at East Lodge. Great.

So, what has been happening here,at the Secret? We have taken on a new gardener, Ben hasbeen busy painting and putting up signs ( remember,  the wind blew the other one down ).  Strimming is  due  to  start shortly.And the dew pond? Don’t  know what to do about  that.. The deer seem to be behaving themselves at presant.  Flower tubs due to be planted up if the weather improves and the geraniums  need to wait awhile.   The wind blew the roof  off an outbuilding, another job for Ben

Ben rescued me from asnow drift on Thursday.Thanks Ben !

Spring Bank holiday is booked,and some guests coming from Australia,  Holland and  Canada later this year. Whitsun and Jubilee Day and week still available. Keep an eye on the Offers page.

Are you staying in London for the Olympics?  Lots of things happening in Derby  on June 30th , concerts etc., and the Olympic Torch is travelling along the A6 between Matlock and Bakewell on Friday,June 29th

Lots of things happening as well as the usual Well-dressings and festivals AND… the Elton John  concert in Chesterfield in June.

So,take care and stay safe,    Christine
