A March dawn over the gate

    A March dawn over the gate  of Glenribbeen.
    Just opposite the gate is a  wee garden Peter reclaimed  and planted with a fern-tree to celebrate the finish of  chemotherapy in 2001. It  borders our stream and has seating and a special swing right by the small stream.
Just across the stream and neighbouring wall is Salterbridge Estate. Owned by the grandson of Admiral Jellico - hero of the Battle of the Scaggerack.
The house and gardens oped two or three times a year for visitors - a small eentrance charge goes to a good cause.

Cycling - America; 
Bed, Breakfast and Biking -
Bed Breakfast and Biking lists bike-friendly B & B's and inns along or near the bike trails and byways throughout the state of your choice. The innkeepers along the bike trails offer hospitality and respite for travelers. They will be happy to help you plan a trip using their B & B as a base or as one of several stops on your biking (or hiking) vacation.

Here at Glenribbeen Eco Lodge we make a special effort to all those that arrive on foot, by bike or by public transport. We have a dedicated wet/dry room and shower for outdoor adventurers and safe lock-ups for cycles and other gear. We also offer bikes and canoe to multiple-night guests. If you know of any cycling/walking groups that might be of use to us and/or our guests let Peter know. We also have an echo-locator for bat-watching.

Bat-watching along th BlackwaterFrom late spring to early autumn Peter goes bat 'watching' along the banks of the Blackwater river. There are pipistrells (both soprano and common), Leisler’s, Daubenton’s (over and dipping in the water and possibly the Lesser Horseshoe Bat - though I haven't confirmed that yet.

Fisherman's path along the Glenribbeen stream to Th Blackwater. We us this path to go to the river - 300m from the B&B and so have hedges, trees, open meadow and of course the river. Missing only are mature roosting sites but we provide bat-boxes.
