Thanks to HMRC trying to steal my money in the form of taxes – from 2017 onwards Broughton House will be closed during November and December, and I will be spending more time with my son, Ben, in Colombia, and all points south. In winter 2017, to mark the start of my 65th year, I had an “Awfully Big Adventure”, and drove my Citroen 2CV., Modestine, from Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, north, through Chile, Peru, Ecuador, and – finally – Colombia, before shipping it home again. Here is a photo of my “Transport of Delight” in front of Broughton House – and she proved to be the perfect vehicle for an adventure of this nature - www.elriobound.blogspot.co.uk
Whilst I am away, I leave Broughton House, and the menagerie, in the more than capable hands of house-sitters Rhian and Rob Marshall. Although the bed and breakfast side of things, and the Yurt, are closed, they do keep the Garden Houses open for business, so if you want to book a self-catering break during the winter, in the Little Garden House, which sleeps one, or the Garden House, which sleeps two, then either send me an email, or ring 01539536439 to book. If you want to make a reservation for any time after the end of January, then email Cate on email@example.com and I will respond as soon as I can.
