5 Minutes From Our Door

Is the view we never tire of...
Really enjoying our 10 minutes or more of walking, it's good to just drop everything & escape!

On our return - we made pizzas.
For the dough, we use Shipton's Mill Flour, Dove's Farm Yeast, Cornish Sea Salt, Olive Oil & water - with a sprinkle of oregano & sesame seeds.
The topping Suma Tomato Puree, mixed with Suma Vegan Pesto & more Olive Oil. 
I can post the recipe if anyone is interested.

We then add what whatever veg we fancy - last night was garlic, onions, mushrooms...

And sliced green olives. 
Hugo also had a sprinkle of organic cheddar on his!

Enjoyed lots of discussion last night about the way we treat older people in this country, triggered by Karin's blog at: Green and Generous - check it out & join the conversation.

And before I forget - we saw this in St Austell on Tuesday & it reminded me of Just Gai's Blog

Off to Eden today, last day of locals for £5 entry - got to get our annual pass!!!

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.



We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.


The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.



The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.


We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

Love Kay and Sime xx


Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
