For us it was a chance to evaluate the 2017 season - the highs and lows and throw around some ideas on what to do during the Winter months in the way of renovating and redecorating.

Along with this we have had some lovely professional photos taken of room 2, our Kingsize room which was decorated during the year and the guest lounge and dining room redecorated and kitted out with some new wicker style chairs.  Really pleased with the result.

Ten Tors Challenge

Dartmoor can be a most inhospitable place when the weather is bad and this weekend its not the best for the 2,400 youngsters undertaking the Ten Tors Challenge.

The event is organised by the British Army and is mainly attended by teenagers aged 14 to 19 from schools, colleges, scout groups and army cadets, although entrants have been limited this year from the South West due to increasing numbers interested in undertaking the challenge.

The event will see the participants trekking in teams of six up to 55 miles (89km).
The teams will camp overnight in what could be very wet and windy conditions this weekend and should arrive back at the starting point at 9am tomorrow Sunday 12th May. .

Almost 300 youngsters with special physical or educational needs will also take part in the Jubilee Challenge, completing routes of up to 15 miles (24km).

Troops involved in the event include members of the Army, the Territorial Army and the Royal Navy.
