2014 started out as the wettest we can ever remember. Weeks of rain seemed to fall at The Quiet Site though strangely hardy any snow fell.
Our new Biomass boiler manged extreamly well with the heating load and our bar, cottages and services have never been as warm.
We have made a conscious effort this year to engage more musicians to play in the bar and have a fairly exciting line up - see below.
As ever we all look forward to welcoming you to The Quiet Site this year.
The lovely pictures at the top and bottom of this newsletter were taken by Ed Fuller.. thank you!
