Portmellon

Most of our work is in Portmellon.
 Which is just a couple of miles away down a windy lane.
Yesterday we had time to kill between jobs...
So we enjoyed a few minutes by the sea before the rain came.

An unusually calm sea!

Portmellon is known for it's high tides.

The pub is on the left of this photo & just behind it are 3 apartments we take care of.
The house up high on the left is actually derelict, though owned by folks we work for - who are selling it for a snip at £1,500,000!

We always joke that we clean most of the properties around the bay...
But actually it's only 10 of them here!

Most of the year, the beach is usually covered in seaweed...
And we sometimes get complaints about it from holiday makers! 
Not sure what they think we can do about it or about the beer & weather... 

The sea was lovely & clear & there were hundreds of these fish...

Which look more like baby eels!


The pub.

An old car in bits...

We'd love to be in the house on the left when the sea gets wild...


The house & apartments to the right get a real bashing at times!

Here's a video we took last year - with us waffling on in the background...


Yes, Sime is a nutter, well actually we both are - Hope you enjoy it!


Bye for now.

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!
