Phew!!!

Another whirlwind of a week...
 Filled with busy work days, lovely guests & surprise family visit!

Last Thursday, we went to see the Eden Choir at the Eden Cafe with Asa's parents...

Melvin & Lesley also spent their last night in Cornwall at Meadowcroft.
Their second stay with us & we feel honoured to have them... Especially as it gives us chance to show our appreciation for Lesley's fabulous homemade Christmas gifts - which we have been extremely lucky to receive over the past few years... Including delicious homemade chocolates!

The Dolphins Fly played their first gig of the year...

Which was a crazy night & ended in a bar room brawl...

Nice though, as our friends came along too!

Gorran Haven Beach on Tuesday morning...

And 5 minutes later the clouds came over...

Lupe enjoying a roll in the dirt...

Fleaby fast asleep & stretched out...

We have loved having another couple return all the way from Canada.

Arinna & Giles have very much become good friends.
(Who does the creepy hand belong to?)

We had a fabulous feast in Truro!

Then Sal & Ryan turned up on Wednesday...

Just in time for dinner...

Even Hugo graced us with his presence...

And it was nice for Arinna & Giles to meet more members of the family...

Last night & toast for their 4th wedding anniversary!
With some rather nice top shelf champers...

About to leave us yet again...

Our Thursday view... From the front door.
(With another mystery hand)
Linking in again with Jane.

Last night's view - overlooking Mevagissey Lighthouse...
(We didn't finish work last night until 8pm)

Tonight's wonderful dinner... 
(Thank you to a lovely Simey) Chili, rice & roast potatoes!

We have received some fabulous gifts from guests...

From chocolate, soap, wine, handmade blanket, wooden mini kitchen utensil ornament, wine glasses, massage, meal out, maple syrup to a beautiful pebble!

Thank you, thank you, thank you - we feel incredibly humbled!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.

Love Kay & Sime

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!
