Time for a tactical retreat?

While we’ve been at the Esk Quilt Show we’ve been staying with Isla and Ken at the Twilight Grove Farm B&B. Here’s the scene this morning……..

If you look closely you can see Jan having her morning cuppa on the verandah. It is such a lovely place and Isla and Ken are the perfect hosts. This is somewhere you want to spend a week- maybe next time.

While we’re on the subject of home-away-from-home I should mention that Isla and Ken’s daughter is Tamara Buchanan (of Quick Stitch Quilting). She runs Twilight retreat next door and very kindly gave us a guided tour. This is one of the best retreats I’ve seen – everything is here. Just look at the photos

The view from the verandah

What I haven’t shown you is the formal dining area and the fabulous open fireplace for cold winter evenings. We might have to plan one of these retreats in the near future.
