Walking The Walk

This morning we dropped Hugo off at BF Adventure, where he had a full day of outdoor activities along with other members of the CAT Group...
 The weather has been beautiful yet again, so we've all a great day!

We visited Miss Peapods for breakfast...

Which is situated in Jubilee Wharf on the Fal Estuary, an eco-development in Penryn.

The views are stunning...

And the food is fabulous!

Their veggie brekkie was one of the best we've had!

Sime thought we should sample a cake too, so we shared this wholesome chocolate cake...

And it was very yummy!

One of Sime's arty shots on the harbour near the cafe...

We decided to have a look at the creeks on the Helford Passage & thought this was interesting...

There were lots of fields of daffodils, not sure why they haven't been picked...

Then we came across this place: Potager Garden
It doesn't open until April & has a veggie cafe, but they invited us in to have a look around...

And we wished we were living there!

Freerange chickens with lots of space...

And a Woodland with lots more daffs...
Nice folks, nice place - look forward to visiting again when they officially open!

We then went to a place called Mawnan, where we hoped to find a beach.
Instead, we found a church...

Surrounded by woodland in a very quiet spot...

Looks like it's a popular place!

We could hear the sea, so took a walk in the woods to see if we could find it!

The footpath joined part of the South West Coast Path.
And again the views were stunning!

We didn't make it to the beach, as we couldn't find the path down!

But we did find a bench & Sime became his usual unearthly self!

And I had concerns...

About who's going to eat the last cookie...

And of course, we shared it - so smiles all round!

Today has reminded us of how much we love Cornwall & there are so many hidden gems here.
A long distance walk is definitely on the cards for a future holiday, no more big road trips.
 It's time to walk our talk!

Back to work tomorrow...

Kay :)

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 …

Ar Wyliau

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
