New signs and very busy times!

We thought July was busy, wow, August was probably the busiest on record here at Poachers Hideaway.

The Top of The Wolds campsite is in full swing now since opening a couple of months ago, most weekends we are up to capacity, as with our holiday cottages.

Directing our guests here is now aided with our new signs! We commissioned Jane, pictured above, to provide us with one of her fantastic paintings of a Shire Horse. Jane is a local artist residing near Lincoln, you can peruse more of her work at www.janehaigh.uk.

Also a big shout out to Blue Apple signs of Louth for doing a sterling job in printing them.

As you may know we have lots of Shire Horses up here at Flintwood Farm and one of our flagship Poachers Hideaway cottages is named Shire Horse barn so a very appropriate illustration...

One very busy weekend was British Superbikes, with us being one of the nearest accommodation providers to Cadwell Park we are a first choice for many bike racing enthusiasts...

All the way from Scotland.

We had some great guests Cadwell weekend, some rode all the way from Scotland to spectate the British Superbikes a pilgrimage they embark on every year. They liked the fact they could go to the circuit enjoy the action then retire to the peace and tranquility in the evening and enjoy a BBQ and admire the view. Not only spectators enjoy our hidden gem, we accommodated a couple of racing teams and track marshals too...

We are celebrating!  Leah, one of our, Poachers resident photographers, has got an award for a book she has just had printed about a recent American road trip though a publisher called Bob Books www.bobbooks.co.uk
Well done Leah, book of the month!

Leah is a thirteen year old student who is working towards her Duke of Edinburgh Award and has chosen to challenge her photography skills to achieve this. Her grandfather and father are both photographers and have influenced her photography, which she hopes to develop her skills to a more professional level.
In her book “Wild Wyoming, A Road Trip”, Leah captured the wonderful wildlife and landscape of Wyoming from The Grand Tetons to Devils Tower.

On a final note from the management and staff at Poachers Hideaway, we are so grateful to all our guests for leaving our cottages in such good fettle when they leave! its often commented on after a busy week...

Oh and whoever left the ice creams we appreciate it!
