We welcome Alasdair, our new Assistant Manager flying solo with us for the first time today.
Alasdair joins us having previously worked with a number of hostels in the Lakes.
Let’s hope that he does not lock himself out and enjoys his first week :)
So it feels like this is the start of something new. We’re very excited and not just a little daunted at the prospect of setting up in business. There seems to be so much to do.
But we still have to wait for all the legalities to conclude. Banks, lawyers, accountants, surveyors, architects, builders, landscapers and other advisers are all doing their thing right now. As soon as we have a firm move date we’ll let you know.
We’re thinking a lot about lifestyle, sustainability and a lot of hard work to be done, over and above our main jobs.
We’ll be hiring staff very soon and hopefully taking bookings from April!
Meanwhile we still have to pack up and say goodbye to Old Forge Cottage and all our Kentmere friends. This will be hard enough!
