The first posting!

Well, this is the start of the Wood View blog, intended to keep you all up to date with events and happenings at Wood View, Austwick and the 3 Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales. We hope to be able to update the entries on  a weekly basis, but if we are a bit slow in the very busy summer months you will have to forgive us!

So what's happening at the moment? Unfortuantely it's raining, but that is nothing new for this part of the world, it's all part of the charm of the area. We are just starting to get busy with visitors and the bookings are coming in fast for the summer.

David & Chris, his biking partner, are trying to build up the mileage in preparation for the Yorkshire Dales Etape on May 15th, but the wet and windy weather is not very conducive to cycling, off-road or otherwise. There is also the longer term ambition of riding the Tour Mont Blanc in August (David has managed to get a week off work!) which is about 100 miles and 30000 feet of climbing in 4 days, so need to get extra fit for that.

This weekend's guests have started arriving, getting out of the rain, so it's time to sit them down by the fire with a cup of tea and some of Sue's home made scones.
