How about escaping the routine of Christmas – the shopping, the decorating the tree, standing in the kitchen for hours and preparing the festive meal? If there is just the two of you – then how about spending Christmas in Cornwall and living the dream for a week in our thatched cottage that feels like a home not a standard self catering rented property?
Ring and Thimble in November – hanging baskets hanging on!
We prepare the cottage for your stay – a real pine Christmas tree complete with decorations, fresh festive greenery gathered from our field hedgerows, a fresh Christmas wreath on your door – made here also. (more…)
Autumn is most definitely here, indeed it’s the last day of October now.
The apple trees in our orchard have been drooping with the weight of the fruit.
delicious red eating apples
We have harvested and gathered and delivered them off to Helford Creek to be made into juice www.helfordcreek.co.uk
Apples all loaded
To return in a few weeks as our own apple juice – pure nectar!
Now it’s off to find a pumpkin to carve for a lantern tonight…………..
pumpkins and gourds
