The Beast from The East 2018

Although we didn’t have it as bad as some places we still got our fair share of snow and ice in February and March. Our opening weekend was a bit colder than we’d expected but we lit the fires in the pub, and got the snowplough out to clear the drive, so all was well!

Dan, our Assistant Reception Manager, walked to work along the Tissington Trail. The roof of the tunnel was covered in some very dangerous looking icicles. He said he walked under them with his hands on his head the whole time!

Here’s some photos we took…..
