Rewilding Our Life - Day 2

We've been working in Portmellon today, which is about 2 miles along the coast from us.
A lot of the folks we work for now really depend on us, it's much more than just cleaning these days & we are really happy to help out whenever we can. 
Today, we just felt it would be nice to offer to take our furry friend out after we cleaned her house.

Today's activity is to be up somewhere high.
There are no mountains in Cornwall, though there are a couple of stunning hills - but they are quite a drive away from here. We had to work all day, so only had an hour spare before picking up Bebe from daycare.

Heading on the coast path from Portmellon to Chapel Point...

And looking down towards Chapel Point.

Lovely Tara.

Us in the pouring rain with Chapel Point behind us...

Here's what it's like in the summer.

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!
