Nocturnal Nature Walk


Book now for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity:

For a limited period only, Count Orlok has thrown open the gates of his ancestral home to anyone that might like to sample the delights of his large estate under the cover of darkness. Our esteemed host has kindly volunteered to provide personal guided tours through his private woodland where examples of Canis lupus, Ursus arctos horribilis, Euophrys lanigera and Desmodus rotundus can be readily found.

A limited range of snacks and warm beverages are provided as part of the entry fee. Vegetarians and customers of a sensitive disposition are advised to bring their own refreshments. Small groups of visitors are preferable, single women and unaccompanied children especially welcome. No coach parties.

Pest Control

We've had a real problem with snails recently. They seem to be a bit bigger than last year too. Not content with destroying the garden they also roam the streets hunting for anything that stays still long enough.

Welcome Home

I'm off back to the old place for the holidays. Sure, the windows are a bit drafty and it need's a lick of paint in some places, but it's home.

Whatever happened to Little Red Riding Hood?

By all accounts she's alive and well, obviously a little older and married to an almost fully domesticated Mr Wolf. Up until a few years ago they were living in a dilapidated apartment in the Palace Hotel on Pier Hill.
