World Food Share

Last night we went over to our friends' at Cotna again for a leaving & birthday party...
We enjoyed yet another fabulous feast of veggie food with friends old & new.

The salad leaves & potatoes are all grown on the smallholding.
And there were lots of lovely dishes to accompany, including Bulgarian Bean Soup, Indian Lentil Dhal, Arabian Rice, Mexican Corn Bread & Cornish Rock Samphire...
Amazingly, none of us ever discuss what we're making, but it always works out just perfectly & as ever - we had a great night with lovely folks! 

Happy 25th Birthday to Matteo!
Who enjoyed another of Magie's delicious cakes.

 Matteo has been WWOOFing at Cotna for a year now...
And is sadly leaving tomorrow to travel around the UK before returning home to Italy in September.

We've all enjoyed getting to know him & hope he will keep in touch.

Hope you've all had or are having a good weekend.
It's been quite stormy here since just after midnight last night...

Thank goodness for our wood burner!

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 …

We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
