Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk.
We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...

Gorran Haven Harbour.
This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...

Gorran Haven.

It was chilly, but warm in the sun...

Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!

First sign of Spring...

Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...

We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...

With a lovely view of the beach...

Lamledra House.
We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance. 
They do have some interesting guests there...

It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...

Cornish herringbone wall.

A last look back before going into the cold dark shade...

A view of the next bay, our beach...

We walked down to Hemmick just as the sun was setting...

And the temperature dropped...

We'd been walking for over 4 hours & now had to climb the steep road home...

But first, we had get through the gushing river over the lane.
With our last ounce of energy, we decided to climb the wall & run through it!
We then continued the journey home, staggering & groaning uphill...

We made it, but haven't half suffered today - our legs, hips & backs are definitely feeling their age...

And just for Kath... The woolly hats are gone - for now anyway!

Night, night.

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!
