Hi Everyone,


Hope you’re all doing well. We’re having a wonderful time here in Cornwall in what Matthew calls ‘our fairytale cottage’. It lay in ruins not so long ago, in fact 3 elderly ladies tell us they used to play in ‘the ruins’ as children and returned for a stay after its complete reconstruction less than a year ago. It’s in an idyllic setting, with field ownership that includes a river of brown trout, sea trout and salmon. We’ve seen some otters, deer, wallabies and plenty of kingfishers and dippers along the river. The beaches are beautiful with care needed as there’s risk of being cutoff on the east at hightide. The neighbouring roads though two-way, are single lane winding paths, high hedges either side – a little on the dangerous side! Love the accent in these parts…think Hobbits!


Time for the latest…
