We’ve had some lovely summer weather at Throapham House this year, with a bumper crop of fruit – including around 20 pounds of grapes from our one and only outdoor vine – and we now have a good stock of home made jams and preserves in the cellar. Meanwhile I’ve been busy with my camera in our garden watching the progress of the seasons and managed to capture this stunning sunset over the village of Laughton-en-le-Morthen. It reminds me of a Saturn V rocket leaving the launchpad. The village forms part of a nice walk from Throapham taking in the English Heritage property of Roche Abbey.

The Tour De France is coming to Yorkshire…

After a very busy summer we’re all now making our plans for when the Tour De France comes to Yorkshire in July 2014.

Ann and I are currently working with partner organisations on some exciting educational opportunities for young people in the region. We’ll add updates on here as these projects develop.

We’re naturally both delighted that Yorkshire has landed this opportunity to showcase what the region has to offer and to be part of something which should bring lasting benefit to local people for years to come.

Throapham House Roof Restoration

We’re planning to do some essential restoration work on the older sections of the roof and chimneys during August 2012. This means that scaffolding will be erected around the main part of the house during this period and that roofers will be working during most of the day.

We understand this might affect your stay as follows…

  • Access to front door via front gate only – the side gate leading from the car park may be closed;
  • Some parking restrictions due to the presence of scaffolding;

Note that the Dewhurst bedroom should be mostly unaffected by this work.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.
