Happy Christmas from Tregongeeves
Happy Christmas to you all from Tregongeeves Farm Cottages, we hope where ever you are spending Christmas you have a restful and happy time and wish you well for 2015.
The cottages are full of Christmas cheer with trees and decorations up. Within the farmhouse where Judith lives there is a whirl of excitement as she prepares to host Christmas lunch for us all – it will be quite a busy day with a two year and two 8 month year olds, but one we all are very much looking forward to. Having watched Paul and Mary’s Christmas Bake Off special last night I have promised a ginger and white chocolate cheesecake – lets hope that goes ok.
This time of year the donkeys seem to fit in perfectly to the festive spirit. Although they are a bit grumpy at the moment as they are in two separate fields as two of them are a bit fiesty and stopping the older girls getting as much food as they need. As Judith has more time on her hands in the quieter months Tom the horse is getting lots of lovely rides, which I think Judith is enjoying as much as him. Alice the Shetland Pony does a good job of looking disheveled a lot at this time of year, mainly due to long hair always looking a mess. Do give her a comb if you see her.
We have been making the most of how quiet the roads are down here at this time of year and have been on plenty of adventures. We have discovered The Beach Cafe at Watergate Bay. The dog and child friendly cafe is a real treat for breakfast and serves the most amazing hot chocolates – well worth a visit. We have also taken several trips to Lanhydrock. There is a new, huge play area along with miles of cycle tracks. Right next to the new play area is a fantastic cafe which again does amazing hot chocolates are great food too.
Living so close to the beach of course we have been making very regular trips to the beach. Just last week we took a wonderful stroll down to Pentewan – I could count on one hand the number of people on the beach, it was magical having it to ourselves.
Once again we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
