Snow Drifts at Near Howe

When the East winds blew across the country towards the end of March at the same time as the temperature dipped, and it started to snow, we had our fair share of drams here at Near Howe.

The wispy snow blew across the fields and dumped itself across the drive at the top of the hill. After much ploughing by Steve and Nigel the farmer we managed to clear a path through. It ended up looking like an Alpine pass!

Tia was in here element bounding about. All very entertaining if a little hard work. It looked truly magical though!

Festive Snow at Near Howe

As the snow hit most of the country Mungrisedale got its share. We all had great fun sledging down the hill, and Tia had a ball chasing everyone, and trying to eat all the snow balls!
