Strawberry delight

Posted by on 7 Jul 2014 in Blog, Featured | 0 comments

Strawberry season at last and harvesting can begin – alongside our gooseberries of course. Even though the children seem very reluctant to be seen weeding or digging during the winter, I’m happy to accept their enthusiasm come harvesting the fruit bounty – still working on them harvesting veg though! Our first pickings mean’t every cottage got a taste of those lovely strawberries – not sure how keen the kids will be to part with the raw strawberry cheese cake Marianne is making today (OK, maybe it’s a bigger struggle getting it out of daddies...

Porthgain World Cup

Posted by on 30 Aug 2013 in Blog, Featured, Gallery | 0 comments

Another great year for Porthgain World Cup (Pembrokeshire). A bit early this year (August 18th), which meant some usual suspects were unable to submit a team, Trefacwn included. Hopefully next year we will be back in the game. Luckily the rain stopped just in time and Porthgain World Cup had sunshine all day. Some tense moments in the quarter finals, with two games going to penalty shootout. The most exciting match (in my opinion) was Mexico & Scotland. Mexico dominated in the first half, taking a 2 goal lead into the second half. With 50 seconds to go Mexico gave away a penalty to Scotland, which gave Scotland renewed hope. In the remaining 40 seconds Scotland managed to pull an equaliser. Then with 8 seconds of the match left, Scotland pulled it out of the bag and into the...

Jackdaw stops work!

Posted by on 7 May 2013 in Blog, Featured, Gallery | 0 comments

Well that was a surprise – Whilst Tom was stripping the Laundry roof, he came across a Jackdaw nest with eggs in it. We have started the renovation of the Laundry by first putting on a new roof, unfortunately we didn’t know we had guests! Luckily we were able to cover them back up quickly and the Jackdaws didn’t seem to be put off . So after a few days, Tom (with help from the kids) managed to remove the temporary cover, lay new plywood over the nest, and all is well. The Jackdaws are in and out still tending their...
