After a packed October half term with an amazing Halloween Fun Day the farm resumed a quieter pace last week. We still had a few families enjoying a late half term and they were blessed with mild temperatures and sunshine. November holidays here in our sheltered valley are always filled with wonderful autumnal colours, but to have temperatures up to 17 degrees to enjoy them has been an unexpected bonus. Out and about the beaches are quiet, the roads clear and the pace of life feels calm and relaxed. We are open all year and welcome short breaks at our lowest prices throughout November if you fancy a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Snap shots in the morning sun
My photos this week draw on the rich colours in the trees here catching the morning sun. If you are out and about this week take a moment to look up and see the wonder of nature in November.
One of many views out from Tree Roots Cottage Window.
Water Mill Cottage nestled deep in the valley and surrounded by beautiful November colours.
Looking at the last leaves clinging on to the branches near the river.
A trained eye will spot a little autumn fairy spreading magic dust over the fairy gardens.
For our guests the mild weather and full week of sunshine has dried all the fallen leaves. Who can resist a little jumping and tossing where they all pile up with the wind. This next photo is technically the worst as a simple i phone snap, but it is still my favourite as it captures the wonderful time these children were having with a pile of leaves down by the river. Their parents had given up trying to take them out for the day, they were having just too much fun on the farm.
