Saturday - a very short post

The new owners-to-be, Simon and Annabel, came to have a really good look at the house, campsite and smallholding today. We showed them round again in great detail. They had come armed with a list of questions which we answered and told them many more things they didn't know that they needed to know too!
Taking over a campsite and smallholding is just a wee bit more complicated than simply moving house. Luckily they are full of enthusiasm and plans and many years younger than us, so will be able to make a real go of it.

No other news today, thanks for comments yesterday.
Just noticed new followers,  so welcome to maria and Naomi.

Back Tomorrow, although goodness knows what with, as not a lot is happening to post about and I certainly don't want to go on and on about the health "thingy".

  1. I bet you are happy that the new owners want to carry on with the campsite and smallholding and build on what you and Col have already done.

    Unless you personally don't want to go on about the health thing, I wouldn't worry about posting about it. From the comments I've read you have some lovely followers and I'm sure they don't care what you write about, I know I don't. As long as you are writing what you want to that's the main thing.

    Have a lovely weekend. xx

  2. I'm glad to hear that the new owners will be carrying on where you left off. That must be a relief for you too, as you have put so much work in setting it all up and getting everything established over the years.

    Write what you need to put down - I think anything about Col's illness will be sympathetically received by your followers.

  3. How exciting, the new owners to be seem very keen to carry on what you have created. I would say write whatever you feel you want to whether that's the "health" thingy or anything else that takes your fancy xx

    1. No, Cancer has put paid to the Hovel on the Hills blog at least for the foreseeable future. "A Bungalow in Ipswich" doesn't have quite the same ring! as our life in Ipswich will be even quieter than here, I shall carry on with the same blog.

  5. But keep posting dear Sue - it just means a little bit of normality in what is a difficult life at the moment. (Have been through a similar experience, so know how important that is).

    1. No, we're not taking anything apart from a few things that are already in pots. The bungalow garden has got lots of shrubs all round and as long as Col gets well again we don't intend to stay there forever.

  7. It sounds as though the new owners are keen and wanting to learn and do and make a great success which I am sure cheers your heart to know that what you have built will carry on and thrive! I hope that it will in any case. xx

  10. I have been reading your blog for a couple of years and just wanted to wish you both the very best. How nice it must have been for the new owners to have time with you to learn from your experiences. It must be good to know that your small holding is passing on to people who will appreciate what you have done and look after it.

  11. How nice of you to answer all of the questions and more that Simon and Annabelle had. Perhaps they will invite you round to see some of the changes that they make.

    I echo others in just post whatever you feel like. Many of us enjoy your writings and look forward to hearing about the bungalow.

    Take care.

  12. Its great news that the new owners to pick up the baton and run with it. You have worked hard to get it to where it is today. Anyway I think a bungalow in Ipswich blog and its tales of renovation will be very interesting.

  13. Good to know that all your hard work will be carried on. Also good to hear that you will keep on blogging.
    I wonder if the new owners will start a blog about moving to your smallholding!

  15. It shows what a good business you have built up that they want and are able to simply carry on with what you have set up and just add their own ideas to it.

    We will read whatever you write :-)
