Companion Beds

Why does it seem to be trendy to sleep in one of these?



Not sure how popular they are, but around here - couples even have matching single duvets.

Most of our private cleans are mainly for retired folks, but surely there must be some older couples who like to snuggle up?

It's kind of left us feeling like this is the way we're all expected to go...

We love our little pine bed & have had it for nearly 20 years.
It's where Hugo was born & all the kids used to pile in early in the morning many moons ago.
We couldn't imagine life with a king size bed, let alone twin mattresses - waving goodnight to each other over the vastness would be very odd.
Anyway, we rely on each other for warmth & enjoy curling up together...

On a different note, I've just finished off sending out invoices & filling our diary with this year's holiday let bookings & now I want to write a piece for our Transition Group's page in the Parish magazine. I've offered to do it & now can't think of anything to write... It's theme is about making our community greener, should it be about us & what we do? Or something more general? 
I don't know...
Perhaps some soup making will help inspire me!

I promised to make it some hours ago!

Sime's doing some finishing touches to our B&B room, so is going to arrive down here starving any minute now...

Whoops!

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


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 …
