Willing Chefs

We knew while we were away that we wouldn't come across any veggie eateries, so we just took pot luck & hoped for the best...

We love carvery vegetables & were pleasantly surprised when we discovered that they were serving exactly what we both fancied at The Old Inn at St Breward.
The chef was really helpful & told us what we could have & also gave us a big bowl of vegan spuds (the main ones were cooked in beef fat) & a jug of freshly made vegan gravy. The stuffing was vegan too!

The pub always has at least 4 veggie dishes throughout the week & would be willing to put a vegan meal together.

We arrived at The Halfway House fairly late & found nothing on the menu, but after discussions with the staff - they managed to make a vegetable bake which they topped with sliced boiled spuds.
It was ok & we were hungry...

The best meal while we were away, was fortunately on our anniversary.
We called at The Rising Sun after our walk & swim, when asked if we'd like to order food by the barman - the whole pub stopped & stared at the word 'vegan'... We felt like we were starring in 'American Werewolf In London'. 
Amazingly, the barman said he'd ask the chef if he could do us something & soon came back saying he would!

It was delicious & rounded off our day perfectly...

We had a wonderful day, one that we'll always remember!

It's the first time in Cornwall that pubs have pushed the boat out & made the effort to provide us with a vegan meal - things are looking up!

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 barn is made from straw bales.

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.

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 …

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …
