A Little Gem

A very special week with mixed weather but who cares when you come “home” to the Birds Nest!  A brilliant base for exploring places half familiar and seeing family at Mossyard.  Many thanks.

Recharged our batteries!

The Birds Nest was exactly what we needed.  A great place to chill out and get away from it!   A great place to cycle and thrilled to find the track from Sandside to Gatehouse.  We will be back.
