Coombe Mill is set at the base of a picturesque wooded valley with the river Camel running through the grounds. This gives us a beautiful sheltered micro climate where the moorland winds whistle right over us. In summer the trees are a beautiful canopy but oh boy do we have a job keeping on top of the falling leaves in Autumn! Like any job, our kids can turn leaf clearing into an afternoon of outdoor fun with just a little encouragement:
The hard bit….
And of course the Fun bit…
and more fun before they are cleared and driven off with Farmer Nick to the Compost heap…
