How not to start your holiday!

Friends arriving for a holiday a week ago ended up like this! Amazingly, and thankfully, the two occupants of the car were virtually unharmed. While making a normal reversing operation after taking a wrong turning, the car took off uncontrollably and ended up against this tree, 25 yards down a hill, only a couple of miles before reaching Ding Dong.

First Ding Dong cuckoo of 2015?

I heard the first cuckoo of the year on Friday last, but Jenny says she heard some weeks ago but forgot to mention it!

Something Stirs

We have had a mild winter down here in West Cornwall so far and plants and creatures are starting to Spring. This may be a good time to secure your Cornish holiday in a very special place, as the Calendar starts to fill.

May 2015 bring Peace and Goodwill to this troubled planet

Happy and productive wishes for 2015 to all of our visitors, from the past and yet to come.
