At long last the weather is beginning to warm up a little and summer seems to have arrived.
We have a lovely French couple to help us over the summer, please stop and have a chat with them as they are keen to improve their English!
The photo of the owl above was taken last week on my way home. We seem to have a lot of hares this year which is great.
Many of our pitches are booked up for the summer holidays so if you want to join us later in the year don't delay!
Our thermal solar panels are regularly generating 200kW hours + a day in this lovely weather. They will work in conjunction with the new biomass boiler which arrived last week The whole biomass/solar system will be computer controlled and should represent one of the most energy efficient and sustainable systems in the UK. It is predicted to pay for itself within 8 years.
This biomass boiler will replace 6 gas and oil boilers around the park. All the super-insulated underground hot water distribution network is in place ready for the big switch on in 2-3 weeks.
Cumbria Tourism Awards 2013
Tension is building as we get closer to the 2013 Cumbria Tourism Awards ceremony which take place next month.
We have been short listed for the 2013 Holiday Park of the Year award.
Mr Quiet has been on a starvation diet since hearing about the short listing as he tries to fit into his suit one more time!
We were runner up two years ago in this category so hopefully we can go one better this year.
New Holiday Caravan for Sale
