Say Bye bye

OK this blog will be no longer if you hadn't already guessed

I have been building the new getaway site and that has its own blog so this one will close, we are still working out the teething problems of the new blog so hopefully you will get some new info on the NEW blog soon.

The site is open for bookings so BOOK NOW for November bookings are filling up fast and numbers are limited so book now via the website.
