Well, after much chivvying of workmen we re-opened our self catering cottages again on Friday 3rd February, with only a minor heating glitch in Cockle, which was sorted by early evening. So that’s three sets of guest that have now enjoyed long weekends in refreshed style and comfort. We still… Read more
Today we may have actually beaten our previous total of workmen on site! So, three in the groundworks team, three in the plumbing team, two in the patio laying team, two in the heating team and Paul the painter, that’s eleven. Oh and a skip lorry has just arrived! Mark… Read more
We took the decision last October to move our oil tank up to the top of our driveway. It was far too close to Cockle Cottage for our liking. We knew it meant a bit of digging up, but little prepared us for the Somme-like conditions of our driveway. We… Read more
Who you ask? Well, Johnny Vegas and his wife Maia Dunphy stayed in The Dairy for New Year, as they left today they said the break had been just what they needed! Having travelled all the way from St Helens to Cornwall via London they arrived last Friday for a… Read more
Well, we know some of you have snow this week, but it is still mild down here and we are yet to have a frost. The first daffs are usually out by mid December but this year they were up and out by the 28th November! Not just one or… Read more
Well what a day we have had – absolutely stunning weather – it could have been June. The cleaners had their lunch outside it was so nice. The forecast for the rest of the week is not looking too bad either, considering we are nearly in November. We have just… Read more

One night vacancy in the B&B coincides with pasty making course.
Great news from the Green Tourism business Scheme – we have achieved a Gold award for both B&B and Self Catering Cottages. We had a pretty tough inspection a few weeks ago — they revisit every two years. With the solar panels, the new efficient heating boilers and a whole… Read more
Driftwood Restaurant goes from strength to strength…
A blustery but fine day yesterday saw us take our two faithful hounds out to St Antony’s Head for a walk along the coastal path to Towan Beach. We were rewarded by seeing a magnificent Red Kite close to Zone Point (the most southerly part of the Roseland Peninsula). T’was… Read more
Plastic never biodegrades.
Last week we took our two mutts on an early morning trip to Turnaware Point. About 300 yards on our walk along the old D-Day road, we sighted this huge deer. It was about 70 yards from us heading towards us up the road. As soon as it sighted Barney… Read more

You literally can’t see anything other than the hue of blue everywhere. We’re off there tomorrow, (with camera… Read more
