Mud, Mud Glorious mud
Now I think we need a disclaimer in our terms and conditions that we can not be held responsible for how muddy your children may get while out with Judith! As you will see from the pictures one young visitor decided to get rather covered in mud – all part of the learning process I guess.
There is never a quiet time a Tregongeeves – this week sees the Horse Dentist pay a visit to help spruce the horses up and shortly we will have the black smith in again. The chickens have started laying again at a fair rate of knots – nothing makes cakes quite like the bantam eggs – not that you will be thinking about baking whilst you are staying here.
Talking of cakes, we have been doing some research for you and can highly recommend The Lost Gardens of Heligan cakes and the food in general. A new chef has resulted in a new line of cakes. We walked up the hill from the Pentewan Cycle trail. It is a steep hill but I managed it with a pushchair and means you can indulge in a cake without feeling the slightest bit guilty.
Judith has been out to the theatre recently, she is a great fan of local groups, but especially the Kneehigh Theatre, a local Cornish troupe who specialise in comedy. Keep an eye out for their outdoor shows or performances at the Asylum. Throughout the summer many outdoor spaces are turned into theatres for a short time, but Cornwall is lucky to have an amazing purpose built theatre – The Minack. It is a bit of a drive away but well worth it -you will not have seen anything like it before. The Miracle Theatre are my favourites. Their comedy shows are a breathe of fresh air and come rain or shine an out door show of theirs promises to be a real treat.
