Fun on the beach

As a farmers wife when her children were growing up and now running Tregongeeves a visit to the beach in good weather is the last thing of Judith’s mine, but this week she has been not once but twice!  The glorious weather and now grandchildren to enjoy it with was too much of a lure…. Read more »

Heavenly scent of summer just around the corner (hopefully!)

I love this time of year when Cornwall really comes alive with the trees in blossom, lambs in the field and everywhere you turn bluebells.  Now I am no gardening expert but I suspect that the winter weather is the driver behind the stunning carpets of blue which seems to be everywhere you turn in… Read more »

Broody (Grand) Mother Hen

There has been a bumper crop of arrivals at Tregongeeves over the last few weeks.  Firstly Judith and John no longer have one grandchild – in the space of 12 hours that total was taken to three!  Their son Richard and his wife Heidi welcomed Bethany Eve into their family, a sister for Jessica on… Read more »

Enjoying days outs

I have been lucky enough to go on lots of outings this week as my parents have been down visiting.  As an annual pass holder at Heligan we were back there again.  A short car journey away,  Heligan really is a great day out – I know I rave about it a lot, but right… Read more »

Spring has sprung

The daffodils are out and there is a real spring in our step!  Especially in Ronnie and Ruby’s step who have yet again escaped.  They just like company and also like to make Judith work harder than normal!  We have yet more new arrivals.  We have new hens, rescued locally, they are already earning their… Read more »

Ronnie and Ruby, the pigs have arrived and  are causing all sorts of fun and games.  The two girls have been rehomed and are interesting little ladies.  Ronnie has already developed a ‘relationship’ with Judith – in that she wants to be where ever she is.  This has resulted in many successful escape missions.  So… Read more »

New arrivals due very soon at Tregongeeves

We are very excited to announce that we are expecting some new arrivals here at Tregongeeves.  As regular visitors will know sadly our beloved Splodge the pig passed away a year or so ago.  Since then we have had River Valley’s pigs – Cinnamon and Nutmeg up here as their paddock needed a rest.  Well… Read more »

Stormy but safe

Happy New Year from all at Tregongeeves Farm Cottages.  We had a lovely Christmas;  Judith and John spent New Year in London taking in the fireworks and enjoying some good food.    John has now headed off for his annual ski trip whilst Judith holds the fought at Tregongeeves (skiing is not her favourite past… Read more »

Child Friendly Cornwall

Living in a place it is easy to become complacent and take what you have for granted.  It is only having gone away up country recently that we realised just how child friendly Cornwall is and how you can pretty much go anyway and be welcomed with small people.  St Austell itself has an array… Read more »

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly, tra la la la laaaaaaa la la la laaaa

Seasons Greetings!  Here at Tregongeeves life is like one big Nativity scene with the donkeys being moved around frequently to ensure enough grazing.  The sheep have grown their winter coats – it is actually surprising how quickly they thicken up.  The pigs – Cinnamon and Nutmeg – have gone on a winter jolly to River… Read more »
