Winter wonderland at the Hytte, December 2009 - January 2010
We hope you enjoy the beautiful scenes around the Hytte during this extraordinary cold and snowy spell.
This year we have had more snow than we can remember for the last 30 years, it started on 19th December and the snow did not disappear until 19th January.
It started with a Hoar frost, and temperatures of around -5°c
It started to snow!
And then began to freeze.
Down to -13°c after New Year
Our guests enjoyed a white Christmas.
"Christmas time at the Hytte truly special, everything was just perfect - walking into the Hytte and seeing all those special Christmas trimmings - wonderful, thank you for organizing the snow" Janet and Bill
We usually hang festive icicle lights on the Hytte at Christmas.
This year we purchased some low energy LED lights, but "Mother Nature" and "Jack Frost" had other ideas.
Our poor hens struggled with the cold and spent most of the time in their hut keeping their feet warm.
But being proper "Free Range" at least one hardy hen ventured out!
