Snowdonia

Hugo managed to get us online...
 Our ISP supplies us with mobile WIFI, but it took a bit of working out!
 So here's the story so far...

It was a really long journey on Friday – nearly 11 hours on the road, but we had decided to drive the length of Wales, instead of taking the motorway & the scenery since arriving in Wales has been spectacular!

 We love being in the mountains & our destination certainly hasn’t disappointed. Far from it, it’s a beautiful place & we are having a fantastic time!

Snowdonia

It had been 29 degrees in the car for the main part of our journey, so it was such a relief when we were finally able to get out, explore & potter about.



Our peaceful haven amongst the mountains...

Which is just perfect...

And we are very happy to be here...

Our caravan has surpassed our expectations – it’s cosy, in a perfect location & surrounded by beautiful, peaceful countryside. What’s more, we are only a short walk from Beddgelert & 10 minutes from one of the footpaths to the Snowdon summit...
It's so wonderful to be waking up every morning to such wonderful views!



Having some leisure time together is wonderful. We are already enjoying relaxing, walking, reading, chatting & laughing together again. It just feels so long since we last had some quality time.
We feel very lucky that we enjoy each other’s company & that we laugh lots – we really do know how to have a good time, but the best moments are always those that don’t cost much...

Bye for now,

Kay, Sime & Hugo

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.

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


A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …

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 …
