New Doors

Our lovely new doors are being made by Nick Andrews- a master woodsman.

  The first three are from elm  which produces a beautiful pattern reminiscent of wave and water flows.

The Traddock

                      The Traddock at Austwick just into Yorkshire has just won the hotel of the year award-
                       well worth a visit  and only a short distance from Wray. The hotel has an excellent 
                      environmentally friendly ethos and promotes sustainable principles in it's use of energy
                      efficiency eg: a wood pellet bio mass heating system, recycling of plastic etc.,fresh water
                      served in glass bottles not plastic , sourcing local food --to name just a few .


John Ruskin's home Brantwood in the Lake District is a great destination for a day trip from Roeburnscar
--enjoy swimming or canoeing in the lake and end the day having cake and tea in the cafe there
