Not quite sun all week…

Well, in fact the sun was a little scarce at Feb half-term – but the weather really was great. It was mild, still and perfect for getting out every day.

Porthcothan was great – and we even made it through the cave and waded across the lagoon to Trescore. But Feb half-term seems a long time ago! We are now focused on Easter…and a very busy period we will have through 1st 2-3 weeks of April.

It’s always the most hectic time of year – new houses coming on, existing houses all having work done, new staff and just general mayhem. So bear with us!!

We have 4 new houses – White Walls (sleeping 10/12), Cape Cod (13) and Merrymor (7) at Constantine, and now Parc Vean (8) at Trevone (not on website yet…but very soon!).

We are looking to add a ‘cheese’ box to our current Veg and Breakfast box options – containing yummy Cornish cheeses, salty local oatcakes and perhaps some quince or onion marmalade to go along side. We always feel it would be great to have a little box to allow you to enjoy a cheese course at the end of your first few suppers! Perhaps with a glass of red, delivered to your house for your arrival! Perfect.

Please welcome Carol to work with Debbie on bookings and admin, and Annabel who will be taking over as book-keeper from Sian in April. Best of luck to Sian with her willow-weaving and thanks for all her hard work! Sure she won’t miss the drive from Fowey! Told her she should have gone north coast….

And in the housekeeping team, Sam is back as a team leader alongside Jo, Jane, Sharon and Mark. And we also have Lisa, Sally and Jem joining the housekeeping team permanently and Chris and Rachel over the summer. We clean all but 3 of our houses with our own teams – and making every house spotless and perfect is what we are striving for! I hope you find the houses so.

We are also starting our own gardening service – and will be mowing our first lawns next week. What fun! Maybe a herb and vegetable garden for each house is not really so far away after all….

Have a great Easter
