Has anyone heard an update?

I know that Butt house is on the market, wondered if Doreen has made any firm plans yet?
I stayed there in May and would like to again next year.
Any updates appreciated.

I was there in July - Doreen and Ernest were planning to retire from doing the B&B in August. They were going to sell Butt House, but then Doreen said that Ernest was born in Swaledale, had always lived in Swaledale, and was going to die in Swaledale. So, given the shortage of available homes in Swaledale, it may be some time before they find somewhere to move to (which presumably means they won't be moving from Butt House in the near future and so it won't be a B&B in the foreseeable future).

Thanks, does anyone know if they are still taking bookings for 2008?
