Creekside

On Tuesday we went off to explore the creeks between Truro & Falmouth.
Starting at Miss Peapods in Penryn, which is where Sal & Ryan live...

And they joined us for brekkie...

We all decided to have the veggie fry-up...

And this was the view from where we ate!

Then the two of us went off to Mylor...

With all it's posh yachts!

We had a walk along the beach...

Which was lovely & quiet...

Last time we visited here - we saw Roger Taylor from Queen.
He was walking around with a bottle of champagne...

Then we called at Restronguet - where we followed the river...

And came across some houseboats... 

It's been another dream of ours to live on a boat...

This one's recently travelled to France!

We were also hoping to visit one of Cornwall's famous pubs - The Pandora Inn... 

But it recently had a fire & looks to be taking a while to rebuild...

Such a shame...

The jetty is still intact - though there's no access.
It's lovely sitting at a table on there - look forward to it re-opening at Christmas!

A hot & hazy day...
We're having fantastic weather again!

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 …

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!
