Well, after a grey weekend the weather in Cornwall has returned to the bright sunshine that we know and love.

Tractor ablaze in neighbouring field

The local farmers have been hard at it recently, ploughing the fields and sowing spring wheat and barley. Imagine then our horror when we see one of our neighbours’ tractors ablaze shortly after 5pm a few nights ago.  We thought the worst and that someone might be trapped inside.  Fortunately,… Read more


What you lose on the swings you gain on the roundabouts

So, the only airport open in the UK recently during the Volcanic Ash crisis was the one down at Mens Pants (aka Penzance).  Flights to the Scillies were going albeit intermittently. But the Ash did affect us down here in a couple of ways – not only were our cars… Read more

Well, after a huge amount of blood and sweat (not to mention the odd tear or two), we’ve finally done it! Roundhouse Barns opens for the Press tomorrow and for our first set of (paying) guests for 2010 on Friday. We’re delighted with the outcome of the refurbishment work –… Read more

Titivating and tarting up

We are now so nearly there with our refurbishment work.

So what’s left then?.. Not a… Read more

Tilin’, groutin’, kitchen fittin’… next week we’ll be flyin’

While we were away in London getting Mark’s coccyx cut off, Justin was left here to man the refurbishment-fort at Roundhouse Barns. It’s typical isn’t it…  the moment we leave, Justin hits problems with other things that need putting right before we can take the next step forward.  This time,… Read more


Daffodils Aplenty

Well we are back in Cornwall after Mark’s operation and its a joy to see all the daffodils out in the hedgerows and gardens. We have snowdrops and primroses as well. We do seem to have missed most of the snow but are still getting frosts and in Truro this… Read more

First fix nearly completed

What a first couple of weeks we’ve had with our refurbishment works. First of all, it was too cold to build our new boiler store – cement will not harden below 5C. Second,  every time  we brought a ceiling down – all planned honest(!), we found electrics and plumbing, that,… Read more
