Well the refurbishments are all complete and we are having great feed back from our guests and lots of re bookings, which makes all our hard work worthwhile over the last months – and it has certainly been hard work!!

The great news is that we were awarded Five star gold by Visit England for all our properties which was fabulous as there is no higher award.

The new website is now up and running and I’ve just got to grips with the new booking system and the new layout for the website – well nearly !!

My next goal is to be more ‘social media savvy’ – so I will be using Facebook, twitter, pinterest and instagram – hopefully soon !

Geoff is spending time at the cottages on the gardens, planting for summer and carrying out the necessary routine maintenance jobs that remain constantly ongoing to make sure the cottages have that ‘WOW’ factor as every guest arrives.

Geoff is always around to meet our guests and show them around and for any questions they may have on arrival, but then leaves them to enjoy their holiday with us at Unique-retreats, knowing we are always to hand if needed.

Hope everyone has a great Bank holiday and we hope to be able to welcome you to our little corner of North Yorkshire very soon……


Joe and Geoff xx
