A view towards Barbon Fells facing Northeast with the Backsbottom Farm windmill just visible. This view can be seen by walking from Roeburnscar , through the garden, up the valley, right over the Roeburn at the footbridge, up the farm track to the farm buildings and onto the tarmac road which is Roeburndale West road. The walk is a round trip if you head back right onto the tarmac to Wray and the cottage. Other than the tarmac, all the walk is on the farm.

Welcome to Fiona and her family during their weekend visit in September. We were so pleased that they were our first paying guests after many months of extended work. Thanks to Fiona for giving us permission to publish some of her photos which were taken on a rare weekend when the sun shone . Some young members of the family ventured into the river and it looked like they were having a lot of fun. Is this really Lancashire ? Is this a newly discovered tribe in deepest, darkest Roeburndale?

A few weeks ago we celebrated the end of the main building work by having a "thank you to everyone who has supported us" party.
This is a wood wasp and looks rather scary but is in fact harmless and quite magnificent. It is about 1-2 " long .

This is an original photo of Roeburnscar circa 1940's. It was built by Mr. Kaye as an example of green wood building after the war. It has stood the test of time. The beech floor in the original sitting room is still as good as new.
