A Christmas visit to Padstow at dusk had the children gasping in amazement. There by the sea wall swam the Loch Ness Monster! Such a long and hazardous journey from Scotland?
The Coombe Farm team were up and out bright and early to get to Bodmin General station with plenty of time to catch the “Santa by Steam” train. I don’t know who was more excited, the parents or the kids, and we arrived extremely early decked out in our Christmas jumpers (as Ella had insisted!).
As it is the season of traditional over indulgence we’ve been thinking a lot about food. We are all big lovers of food. We try to buy local food if possible as not only is it the right thing to do, Cornish food is very yummy. One of the best places to start is the home of food hero, Rick Stein.
What better way to kick-off the festive season than to see the lovely lights switched on in Launceston. The Coombe Farm team headed off into the night with two very excited small people, ready for some fun.
Half Term, Halloween and Coombe Farm’s Pumpkin Soup.
One of our half term activity was to build Coombe Farm’s first insect house. It’s awesome, it’s eco, it’s natural, and we just love it.
We knew all about the amazing Cornish beaches, but what was a totally unexpected bonus was discovering, (and continue to discover,) all that Bodmin Moor has to offer. We love it, it’s great for walking, riding, climbing, paddling in lakes, having a picnic and exploring.
