May is OUT, June is IN

6 June, 2021

And The Composer is late with the blog, again!!  Thankfully, always on time to welcome Guests to their Composers accommodation in Northumberland – the county with the best beach in the UK (at Bamburgh), according to a Travel Industry survey.  And boy, have we welcomed the BEST Guests during May!  Sadly, The Composer and Mrs.…

Fanfare, please!

3 May, 2021

And so, with just the quietest fanfare, Composers at Woodlands re-opened the doors to holiday Guests for the first time in…………….far too long!  Having said that, ‘The Composer & Mrs C’ would like to blow the trumpet, just a little more, to celebrate re-opening – we hope you don’t mind! Lockdown is a word we…

Ready to go…..BUT

16 April, 2021

All ready to go! Well……..ready, but a little late with the Blog this month because we have been a bit busy! We are hoping to welcome back Guests to Composers from May. We have not been idle during Lockdown and, once again, our properties have received much attention so we will be ready to go –…

Where to begin?

3 March, 2021

After an absence of too many months The Composer & Mrs C are back!  It goes without saying that they are glad to be back after the stop-start seasons and events of the past months. After the Blog of October 2020 it would have been hard to imagine, having coped with events that closed and…

Clocks back, lock down, cheer up!

31 October, 2020

The Composer spent last weekend doing what we all do – changing the clocks. With 4 properties, and numerous devices in each requiring attention, it was a herculean task. Bernstein offered a glimmer of hope. The kitchen clock is digital and controlled automatically, so it changes without aid – as does the outside Courtyard clock.…

All S & S

1 October, 2020

The Composer and Mrs C are truly S & S – Sanitised and Satisfied.   How else can we describe the 28 days since the previous blog? Come to a Composer property and you could eat your dinner (or any other meal or snack!) off the floor, the walls, the bathroom tiles and even the…

Thank you, kind Guests

1 September, 2020

As August ends, The Composer, Mrs C and the staff say a massive THANK YOU to all our Guests! Thanks for staying with us, thanks for enjoying Northumberland, thanks for visiting our local attractions and tourist destinations and for being UTTERLY BRILLIANT! Let’s face it – the staycation holiday is the better way to avoid…

Les Mis? Non – Les Content!

24 July, 2020

One day more (Les Mis!) Well, The Composer is merrily singing not just ‘one day more’ its now ‘one MONTH more’. Of course, he’s singing it in his head as he can’t sing out loud!!  Yes, 28 days have elapsed since Composers at Woodlands came out of lockdown and welcomed Guests once more.  And what…

Overture to opening

30 June, 2020

Well, by the time you read this, The Composer & Mrs C will either be ready or will have flung wide the gates to welcome guests back to Composers at Woodlands, the overture to a new start and a welcome return to business. So this post, written on the final days of June, follows the…

Summer arrives!

2 June, 2020

The Composer sat back and 1st June arrived  – it was officially SUMMER!  Or was it?  It seems like Composers at Woodlands has been in ‘summer mode’ ever since Easter with the most lovely, warm and dry weather. Well, amazing if you like sitting out in it but not good if, as was the commission…
