The Media, The Myth and the Truth.

1 September, 2021

The Composer has never been shy when it comes to media/publicity and promotion.  How else can you ‘sell’ something without promoting it.  Years ago, we made brochures, offered flyers, created handouts and even resorted to local radio interviews!! Now, exposure is via a web site, Facebook, Google, Trip Advisor, Instagram and other media platforms.  Fail…

Confused – Bemused – Certain

30 July, 2021

As July finally disappears, The Composer and Mrs C are reviewing (yet again) the confusing Government directives which have circulated throughout the past month.  It seems that the easing of lockdown, lifting of restrictions and the bemusing rules and regulations, which we are now reading, leaves us with one certainty. We are changing nothing!! Our…

Bring on Summer!

6 July, 2021

It may have slipped your attention but, SUMMER is here! Aficionados of the seasons will have been poised to welcome the summer sun on Sunday 20th June.  The plethora of news from around thew world, the effects of CV19 changes and the media frenzy over sport seems to have pushed SUMMER into the background.  Not…

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…
