Broody (Grand) Mother Hen

There has been a bumper crop of arrivals at Tregongeeves over the last few weeks.  Firstly Judith and John no longer have one grandchild – in the space of 12 hours that total was taken to three!  Their son Richard and his wife

Heidi welcomed Bethany Eve into their family, a sister for Jessica on the Sunday 6th April, and daughter Alison and her husband Paddy welcomed William John on Monday 7th April.  A very busy time for the family indeed!  Pictured is Richard and family at Heligan.

As if babies were not enough Judith has had chicks hatching left, right and centre too, I lose count of how many there are now, but lets just say a lot! Time will tell as to how many are hens.  Talking of hens they have well and truly started laying again which is fantastic news and will ensure some delicious cakes are being produced.

Talking of delicious food we must recommend a visit to The Lost Gardens of Heligan.  The food has really got very good there, especially anything involving the Dexter Beef.  And the cakes are to die for.  Huge and moreish!   Pictured are the shire horses sowing poppy seeds in the fields at Heligan, it was a spectacular site which made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck – it was like going back in time  Another recommend is the Cafe at the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery.  It gets very busy so go late morning to avoid having to wait for a table.

Here at Tregongeeves there are a few of us who are very excited by the forthcoming Gruffalo activities across the County.  To celebrate the Gruffalo’s 15th Birthday there are lots of activities happening from free walks to events at Eden.  Why not follow the Gruffalo Trail around The Eden Project or take part in the Gruffalo’s birthday party preparations? Or if you would like to take in the great outdoors and do a free event then visit Cardinham Woods.  Not only is the play area amazing there is a free Gruffalo Trail around the woods.  The cafe there does fantastic cakes too.

Coronavirus Update – 24th March

We wanted to give you a quick update if you’ve booked with us or are wanting to in the coming months.

At the moment we are closed until the end of April and will continue to monitor the situations.  This is to ensure we can do our bit in helping to stop the spread of the virus – now is a time to stay at home and spend time with family there.  If you have a holiday booked with us or have any questions then please do give us a call or send us an email to

 Whilst now isn’t the time for you to come to Cornwall, it’ll still be here when we get through this – we’ll see you again.

Take care and stay healthy

Judith and Family.
