Spring has sprung here on The Moors!

During winter we sometimes forget how lucky we are to work and live on this beautiful spot in Dartmoor National Park.

But here we are at the beginning of March and the warm Spring sunshine has breathed a new lease of life into the lush grounds that surround our Devonshire care home.

Bulbs are coming up in our beautiful garden and the flora and the fauna that keeps so many of our residents happy is quickly returning to bloom.

The fish in our newly renovated pond appear to have woken from their winter slumber and are happy frolicking on the surface once again.

But the fish aren’t the only wildlife that our residents have on their front door. From our unique spot on The Moors, we get a front row seat to lambing season. Lots of tiny white fluffy lambs graze with their mother’s right in front of where our residents enjoy the spring sunshine.

Another favourite of the residents is the Moor Ponies. Their inquisitive nature means they’re often visible from the conservatory and spotting them becomes quite a game for the residents.
