It’ s been a busy weekend at Roundhouse Barns but we have still managed to find some time to enjoy the glorious sunshine.
It was a busy day Friday with changeovers in all three cottages and the B&B, so finally at 5.00pm Barbara left our B&B guests enjoying their cream tea and the sun on their patio whilst she took Barney and Lucia for a walk. Turn right out of our driveway and it’s only fifteen minutes down to the river beach at Turnaware. The dogs spent a while cooling off in the river, whilst Barbara spent some time ogling a rather nice yacht that was moored by the creek.
After a busy day we didn’t feel like cooking so ordered takeaway pizza from Tatums – check out their Facebook page. Mark pootled down to Portscatho to pick them up and they were enjoyed with a bottle of Camel Valley Rose Brut! (Yes we know, pizza and pink fizz is a strange combination but our excuse is that we were celebrating the fact that Mark has a new job!)
Saturday was just as glorious so once B&B breakfasts were done and the rooms cleaned, we settled down to paying some Roundhouse bills, especially those of our cleaners – really important to keep them happy and pay them on time. However, it was not too long before we were sat outside on our patio enjoying lunch in the sun – with two hopeful dogs sat nearby.
We walked the dogs along the coastal path from Porthbean to Curgurrel and back – gloriously sunny and both dogs enjoyed a swim, Barbara had a paddle – we should have taken swimming costumes and towels it was so tempting.
Dinner was pork chops from our lovely local butchers with new potatoes, broad beans and french beans all straight from our veggie patch, which is also well used by our cottage guests!
Sunday brought a changeover in the B&B so after saying goodbye to our lovely guests it was full steam ahead for a complete changeover – beds from twin to king size and a deep clean.
Midday was time for a quick Skype with Tommy our lovely digital marketing expert. The sun was still shining, so time to do our favourite Sunday walk around Messack Point, open fields, cool woodland and a scramble down the cliff for a quick dip in the sea.
Back by 4.00pm as we are expecting new B&B guests to arrive – but at least we can wait for them in the sunshine.
All in all a glorious weekend, lets hope there are many more this summer!
(As you can tell, we love it here! If you’d like to experience any of this yourself then we do have some limited availability left this summer which you can see here.)
