Following the sunny day at Bolton Abbey and Brimham Rocks the weather turned.  As I lay in bed drifting in and out of sleep I could hear the sound of rainfall.  I find the sound of rain quite refreshing, so it was soothing and therapeutic.

Beauty after the rain…

  1. So where did you moor your little boat?
    Oh, that’s actually a ford!

    • CherryPie says:

      Yes it was a ford, in that part of the world they are called Beck.

      Sadly I forgot to take a picture of the lovely slate footpath you have to cross to get to Beck House!!

      Or maybe that was just a way of needing an excuse to go back and visit again ;-)

      • I don’t wish to be pedantic but as a child there was a beck which flowed at the bottom of our garden. Beck is a stream and not a ford. The village is called South Milford and is just South of the Mill ford. See the link where it states other names

        • CherryPie says:

          oops! I didn’t explain that properly did I? There are pictures of both the beck/stream and the ford which is the shallow passing place that can be seen particularly in the last photo.

          I haven’t got any photos of the beck/stream looking the other way.

          • No problem :-) As you know my AS has this thing about literal meanings and accuracy. You are a minor offender. Whereas those who talk about implementation of my case when the issue is non implementation I deem as serious offenders. Today is the 6th anniversary since my case…

            • CherryPie says:

              I don’t have a problem with anyone pointing out that I have been inaccurate. I like to know when I have made a mistake (or haven’t quite said what I meant to), so thank you :-)

              But I do hate it when people obsessively correct minor grammatical errors, such as missing a comma or a fullstop. I am sure you know the type I mean ;-)

    Pivotal question: How many sausages do they serve for breakfast?

  3. Yes, I think the sound of rain can be comforting, too – provided you are inside!

  4. It is such a soothing sound… when you are indoors!

    Too true. I love the rain. Even if I’m outside it’s fine provided I have a big umbrella. The real water of life.

    It does exactly that for me too and I can’t get enough of it. Stops hosepipe bans too.

    I love the sound of rain dashing against the windows when I’m in bed, I just love to snuggle under the duvet and go back to sleep…soporific indeed, That looks an interesting little Guest House Cherry,,,another one to put on my list….Am I a guest House stalker? Lovely photo’s again, just loved the beck, very pretty.


    • CherryPie says:

      It was a lovely guest house but I think you might struggle with this one. To get to it you have to cross over a slate bridge (over the beck) which is not suitable for wheel chairs. Once on the other side though there are ground floor rooms.

      There is nothing wrong with being a guest house stalker ;-)

      I am glad you are enjoying the photos :-)

    Fantastic location to stay and the sort I have come to expect from your page here. I’m a B&B connoisseur too but probably at least about £5 a night less than yours ;-)
    Having said all that, it’s not always my choice !

    • CherryPie says:

      Part of the stay here was from a holiday voucher that was given as a gift. I gave you a night B&B in your choice of location and this one looked lovely. It lived up to what it said on the website.

      I always have to compromise too.
