All I need to say is ….. Come to Devon and you will see for yourselves that we really are,  fungi’s to be with!!

These were taken in our woods this morning. It is amazing what you see when you really take time to look.

What a beautiful time of year. Leaves are changing colour, the days are still hanging on to the warmth and the nights are feeling the chill. Autumn is a time to fill your senses with the sights and sounds of the gorgeous outside and then come back to steaming hot soup and crusty warm bread….or…..the warmth of apple crumble and custard…….or….. I could go on!

Devon has so much to offer at this time of year, the colours of Rosemoor Gardens, the freshness of our beaches or maybe a time to saddle up and see the counrtyside from horseback.  There are many places to ride, all with stunning views where you can take life at the pace you want to take it.

Devon….. a place where memories are made and our welcome is as warm as ever!

Thought I would share these photos of our North Devon coastline. This was taken at Brownsham near Hartland and it was stunning. We walked through the woods which  leads onto a cliff path that gently winds its way up and before you know it you are looking at  beautiful views of the coast and Lundy island. It was lovely to sit for a few precious moments and just take it in. How blessed we are to have this right on our doorstep!

Huge Congratulations and Thank You to those who set up the stand at the show, took it down again and manned it over the course of the day. The stand looked amazing and many people stopped  to look and take part in the free draw.

Not only did we think it looked lovely, so did the judges and awarded it 2nd prize in the Arcade Tent….. Brilliant!

Loads of leaflets, books and brouchers were given out which  hopefully means that more and more people will take a look and realise that, down here in good ‘ol Devon, we have some of the best places to stay and some of  the  most beautiful countryside that you will find anywhere.

Well done to you all!

 

What a privilege it was to be able to watch a friend of ours break the world record.
Sheep farmer Matt Smith has proved his shearing skills to be world-class, after breaking one of the toughest records in the trade.

In the incredible challenge, a physically demanding feat equivalent to running three marathons back to back, Matt sheared 731 sheep to break the nine-hour wool ewe world record by a ten-strong margin.

Matt, 32, sheared 731 ewes in nine hours at a farm in Cornwall to beat the previous record of 721.

The event has made headlines around the world and was live streamed to audiences in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Iceland and Ireland.

It was the first sheep-shearing world record attempt in the northern hemisphere.

At one point Mr Smith, originally from New Zealand, was tackling the sheep at a rate of one every 36 seconds – well ahead of the 45 second target.   Really well done Matt.
