Some small, some world famous, every garden has it’s own unique appeal and Cornish twist. Below are some of our favourites, in no particular order.
As the heat wave approached, we knew it was time to have the Coombe Farm “flock” sheared. They had never been fully sheared as last year they were lambs, so they had very very woolly coats and were struggling in the heat.
We were lucky the world champion, a guy from New Zealand, who lives locally, agreed to take on the task. As we are a very small set up, it was a fairly low key but much needed event. Matt, who shears thousands upon thousands of sheep per year stopped by after work with his shears, and half an hour later they were done.

Many Cornish Beaches have seasonal restrictions banning dogs, usually from Easter Day until 1st October, with signs at the entrance to the beach. Some ban during the day but allow dogs in the early morning (before 7 or 8 depending) and late evening (usually after 7) - the sign will specify. And most beaches are dog friendly out of season. However, the beaches below allow dogs at any time (to the best of our knowledge). Have fun with your four legged friends on the beautiful beaches.
