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 progressing nicely

Throapham House roof restoration progressing nicely

The scaffolding finally went up at Throapham House two weeks ago and a welcome period of fine weather has allowed work to progress swiftly. We expect most of the external work to be complete by the end of September and it’s nice now to see things taking shape. The original second floor servant’s quarters will make some attractive additional rooms and with modern day insulation and roof lights will be a lot warmer and brighter than when the house was originally built.
Guests to Throapham House during this period will find turning space a little restricted in our car park so we will help to guide you out, but otherwise there is less disruption than we expected.

The photo shows the roof slates removed above our guest lounge. There will shortly be a new roof window in here which will give some fine views across Dinnington.

Congratulations to 17 Burgate

While we’re on the subject of awards, we’d like to congratulate Pat and William at 17 Burgate over in Pickering in their recent success in the 2010 White Rose Awards.

We’ve known Pat and William for a few years now since getting involved with the Yorkshire’s Finest Accommodation project. They are an inspiration to all and fully deserve their success. We would like to think they will be keeping a close eye on the competition from South Yorkshire next year though :-)

Throapham House retains 5 Star Gold and pockets Breakfast Award

Ann and Robert are delighted to announce that we have retained our 5 Star Gold Award for the fourth successive year since opening in 2006.

Our hard work in the kitchen department has paid dividends this time with a Breakfast Award. Since 5 star properties have to display excellence in menu choice, preparation and presentation it is indeed very satisfying for us to know that we can measure up well against other accommodation providers.

In winning this award we’d like to thank some excellent local suppliers including our award winning local butchers D J Fentons and general grocers Taylors of Tickhill.

Our final thanks must of course go to our guests whose support makes this business very enjoyable. You are the ones who will really help us to maintain and improve our standards and your feedback suggests you enjoy what we provide. We look forward to meeting you again the next time you are visiting the area.
