Bleating lambs and clucking hens
It is never quiet here at Tregongeeves and at the moment it is Primrose and Bluebell – our two lambs who are the noisiest. After guests have filled the young lambs tummies with warm milk they next bleat very loudly until they get their breakfast. Next inline for big voices are the chickens who relish bread and feed that guests give them. Obviously they reward with the most amazing eggs – which helpers are often rewarded with after they have assisted Judith with the morning jobs.
Of course this changing weather means some would rather not venture out for the animal feeding, but that is okay as guests need not even leave the farm making the most of the swimming pool or playing in the ever popular play barn. It is so lovely watching the new area being used by guests for hours at a time. It is just sad when you see the children crying on Saturday as they don’t want to leave it!
What a time it has been for the country with political leaders dropping like flies and now the exit from Euro 2016. It suddenly has made a change from the usual conversations about the weather. In all this turmoil it is worth remembering that down here in Cornwall we are not changing; offering the usual great value for money coupled with high standards across the cottages. When opting for a ‘Stay-cation’ at least you don’t have to be worried about an ever changing Euro, whether your flight/ferry will delayed or even take off due to strikes. All you need to consider is when is the best time to attempt the A38/A30 to us and whether we have a cottage available.
On the roads – I went up the A30 on my departure and dared venture back into Cornwall on a Saturday down the A38. Despite everyone telling me I was mad and it would be busy we had an amazing run. I think it is all about timing and listening to the travel news. We left early and when we heard there were delays on the A30 on Saturday we opted for the A38.
As the weather begins to hot up so does the massive amount of things on around Cornwall. Over the next few blogs I will be covering various things on for your to enjoy whilst staying, this week it is all about:
