Cruising into Spring at Coombe Mill

Posted on March 12th, 2016

Ready for Easter

With just 2 weeks before the school Easter holidays we are gearing up here on the farm with bookings increasing week on week. The rain has let up and the sun showing it’s hand much more. Spring feels tantalisingly close and the farm is beginning to wake up from the winter storms.

It isn’t often I capture wildlife, but this little wild rabbit ran out of one of the chicken’s nesting boxes as we peered inside searching for our morning eggs. The Easter bunny perhaps? 

A stroll with Nick to admire his fence mending over in the deer field prompted this photo. It looks out over one of our lakes and across the river. You can just make out the limits of our land running into the woods on the far side of the valley.

Calm after the storm. This sunset photo was taken following 24 hours if winds and our second power cut this year. It always amazes me how our weather can change so suddenly and spectacularly.

We have moved our website over to wordpress this week and I’ve been spending more hours than I care to admit slumped over my PC trying to sort out issues that have arisen. Apologies if you have received too many emails from me on posts being redirected, lost the image on my badges or paid for a holiday only to find me ringing up to explain the money hadn’t actually been taken. Finally towards the end of the week I felt we were winning the battle of the website gremlins and allowed myself a stomp over Trebarwith Sands, a beach so close to us yet one I’ve not visited in years.  

Still I have no baby lambs to share; I think they are all waiting for Easter day! Speaking of which, we still have a couple of properties left for the Easter holidays and welcome short breaks during term time in spring, please get in touch if a farm holiday might suit you.
