The South West Coast Path Circular Walk From Home

We're having such beautiful weather here at the moment, so we're making the most of it!

Last week we decided to do one of our favourite local walks...

Taking the lane past our hamlet...

And the footpath down towards Caerhays...

There had been a thick sea mist all morning, which started to lift.

1 mile from home...

Tim Burton's film crew were starting to take over the beach.

After feasting on fruit & handfuls of nuts on the beach, the mist cleared & we got on our way...

We joined the coast path to head home...

Looking back down on Porthluney Beach.

A mysterious standing.stone.. Neither of us remember seeing it before!

Taking in the view...







These steps through the woodland are never-ending... 

Out the other end...

Down more steps...

This little chap ran across the path - we do see lizards a lot in our garden too.

We think the only way to get to Lambsowden Cove is by boat...

As it really is quite a long way down!


Catching sight of Hemmick Beach... 

Nearly home!

The walk is about 3 miles long & we took just over 4 hours to do it (including an hour on the beach).
There are lots of ups & downs, but it's worth it to be in such a stunning place - you really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere & to top it all - we had the path to ourselves!

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 …
