Autumn is here.

Lovely skies at night, but turning colder now.  The cattle still happily grazing on the fields which are a bit on the wet side shall we say so treading the soil up a bit…………ready to come in doors soon.

Skim a stone or two…………

A stay at Ross Bay Retreat can be all you make it………as quiet as you like, a little walk here, an amble there, mud skiing here, some stone skimming there.  Watch the tide come and go, some boats go by, the cattle and sheep wander the fields, the deer pass by the window (and eat

How about a BBQ this summer whilst sitting in the back garden down here at Ross Bay, or out on the balconies listening to the waves, or the wind……………… Enjoy some relaxation time beside the sea.
