Hi everyone

It is with heavy hearts that Mum, wee Tara and I have shut Maple Bank until further notice.

As folks have been cancelling their non-essential travel as requested this has obviously meant that we will be empty for a while.

So many of you have rescheduled until later in the year which is just amazing.  Not just for us, but also for all the pubs, visitor sites, cafes and restaurants that rely on your custom.  Here’s hoping we will be able to share the good weather with you later in the year.

The Head Gardener has a long list of things for me to do, alongside some exciting woodwork painting I had planned for January ‘21.  And I'm volunteering in the Braithwaite Village Shop as well so we can keep it going with deliveries etc for those folk who are required to self-isolate - so we won’t be idle!

Thank you so much for your support and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

In the meantime, stay safe my friends. Be strong. And look after each other.


Ann, Kate and wee Tara
