Preparations under way for the navity – so why not join us at Christmas?
Work never stops at Tregongeeves and our latest project is preparing for a navity in the paddock. Richard and George, supervised by Judith have been busy building a shelter for the donkeys. The shelter is a bit of a challege especially as it is being built on a slope. Someone forgot to shut the chickens away so they have left their foot prints in the freshly laid concrete…at least it will stop the donkeys slipping.
John & Judith had a wonderful holiday away, fully refershed and rearing to go again. I am sure Judith will show you her pictures if you ask the next time to are visiting.
Half Term was lovely here, the weather was kind to the guests. We had some lovely carved pumkins and the winners of the quiz were Evie and Morgan who stayed in Quakers.
Our thoughts now turn to the festive period. There is so many lovely things to go to in Cornwall in the run up to Christmas; whether it is ice skating at The Eden Project, carols at The Lost Garden of Heligan, Fowey Chritsmas Market or the Padstow Food Festive which is attracting more and more top chefs.
Judith is taking to being a Granny like a duck to water, which none of us are surprised about given her amazing ability to entertain children. She is pictured giving Jessica some milk opposite, she is also in full charge as I type, giving me full use of my arms for a short while!
We have had some very sad news, unfortunately Wilma, one of our sheep recently passed away. She sadly got an infection which we were unable to treat. Alice has also been on stable rest as I mentioned last time after a run in with a bigger horse, however she is recovering well and getting back to her cheeky self.
Don’t forget we offer short breaks here throughout the winter. As I type right now the skies are bright blue and there is a lovely crispness in the air. Cornwall is lovely all year round, but I think it is even more special in the winter. You can also find details of some fantastic offers we have over the Christmas period.
