The weather has been great and the heather will be out soon. The country is looking lovely. The cottage is cosy and comfortable - still lots of logs in the woodshed and nothing like curling up by the logstove with a good book if it should turn wet or cool again! BOLTSLAW COTTAGE is looking great with new paintwork in kitchen and main bedroom. The newly refurbished Lord Crewe Arms pub in Blanchland has just re-opened and reports are good! There is also a bar at the Sports Club.
