Lots of snow!

Like many places we have just had more snow at the hotel than has been known for many years. The notable difference this year was the low altitudes at which it has been snowing. It started snowing last Friday and by Sunday there was 15cms of snow covering the farm. It started melting on the Tuesday evening and today Thursday it’s all gone from the farm, but still remains on the mountains.

In the 15 years we have been living here this is the first time we have had the farm covered with snow for more than a day, five days to be precise. The following photos were taken on the farm and on walks straight from the hotel during these last few days.
