Rewilding Our Life - Day 7


Yesterday, we spent more time on our beach... 
We collected driftwood & picked up a bin liner's worth of rubbish.

The activity was to think about our dream house & where it would be... 
Well, we've thought lots about this over the years & Sime wrote a post about it back in 2010: Losing Our Way, Finding Our Way.

Living off grid, generating our own power & having our own water supply is very important to us. We know we'll get there, when the time is right... 

Log Cabin, Cabin, Hillbilly, Forest, Log, Appalachian Mountains, Rustic, Tennessee

Meadowcroft has been a great house for our family, we've been here for nearly 9 years... We've enjoyed having various lodgers & relatives moving in with us, but now Hugo has practically moved out & we're not sure how long Bebe will be with us, so we are seriously thinking about our future & believe we'll be on the move fairly soon.

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!
