at home with country kids

for the last few years, we have been enjoying a christmas winter break. now i love the sun, i really do, but a winter break in the english countryside is very nearly high up there on my favourite holidays. school is out. childcare is scarce, so holiday time it is. we’ve been to cornwall, we’ve been to yorkshire and then fell in love with the north norfolk coast and went for  couple of years back to back. this year we thought we would start back at the beginning. cornwall. so here we are on the home turf of the country kids, coombe mill!

here we are on our first day, exploring our new digs.

just outside our cottage ronnie discovers a little railway track, more of that tomorrow at 4pm!

ronnie is really coming on leaps and bounds with his camera and insists in taking it everywhere we go. love him.

  1. I love to see our farm as discovered a fresh with new eyes. Loving your tour round and the great picture quality. I shall be out comparing cameras with you in the morning!

  2. It looks like Ronnie is having such a brilliant time! I’d love to visit as the boys had their first farm holiday this year and got so much out of it. Thanks for linking up to our Parenting Pin-it Party.
