Well, the nights are definitely drawing in and as it is a bit quieter we have decided to close Belmont for the winter so that some long overdue serious house-cleaning can be done. Ann and Jim do a brilliant job keeping the house as clean as it is but obviously there are some domestic chores that can't be accomplished when we are getting ready for the next set of guests. We are also intending to do a bit of painting. So, we are closing from the 12th of December to the start of March. If anyone is really keen to book a week long break during that time, then please contact us - with a very good reason why! It could be amusing to find out what the best reason for a break at Belmont is.
