Ben and his catch

Apologies for the delay but here is the promised picture of Ben and his dad fishing.  They had a fantastic day catching whiting and mackerel, having departed on a boat from Mevagissey.  I was lucky enough to sample their catch and can confirm it was so yummy.  Ben, and his brother, dad and grandad earnt their keep whilst at Tregongeeves; up with the larks each day helping myself and Judith collect the eggs and making sure the pigs, donkeys, sheep and Alice the shetland were fed and water – all important jobs that we couldn’t do without the help of guests.  Thank you if you have helped us over the holidays.

Cornwall is bursting with people visiting at the moment, and it has a real buzz about it; especially with so many activities taking place.  Next week sees the start of Charlestown Regatta, which has things on throughout the week including music on the quay and a children’s sports evening and a donkey derby with real life donkeys!  Or if knights in shining armor are more your thing then why not head to the Medieval Joust at Pendennis Castle.  Next Sunday sees the Tregony Heavy Horse Show or later in month there is the St Ewe Country Fair.  Despite a being a small village St Ewe Country Fair is a real date in the diary event attracting thousands of people each year.

Don’t forget if you take some good pictures
whilst on holiday to send them to us – we would love to feature you on our blog!
