Judith’s little helpers

The cottages are buzzing with people and children at the moment at the beginning of the Easter holidays.  Judith has been very, very grateful of the gang of helpers this week.  I ventured out this morning with everyone.  We had great fun feeding the the pigs, trying to make sure all the donkeys get food and not just grumpy Bob, we gave Alice a little cuddle who is in a stable to keep warm, we tended to the numerous chickens and visited the sheep who came galloping over.  Phew…there are so many animals to see!

We are certain that warm sun is just around the corner, so much so we have started to plan things to do in April.  Why not visit Cornwall for a short break – we have some availability throughout April.  Whether it is warm or cold spring is defiantly in full force down here with the start of the flower festivals   Why not visit the impressive Cornwall Spring Shower Show at Boconnoc House the 6th – 7th April.

The Tregothnan Estate will be opening it’s doors to the public on the 20th-21st April.  This privately owner estate rarely lets the public in.  The yearly opening is a real treat of a garden.

If the sea is more your thing then the new Legends of the Bay; a combination of kite surfing and paddle boarding will be just your event.  Taking place the 27th-28th April at Watergate Bay this promises to be a great event.

Along with Spring festivals we are also at the beginning of village and town events.  Padstow is famous for their May Day celebrations known locally as ‘Obby ‘Oss Day.  There is much debate about the origins of the event, however there is no debate about the popularity of this celebration.  The dancing, parade and general celebrations brings thousands to this beautiful fishing village.
