Tredethick Animals – Scrumdidlyumptious Pigs!

Posted on: 28th June 2015

Our black and white Kune Kune pigs Plum and Crumble are sisters. Like most siblings there are elements of love and hate in their relationship. At night, they sleep snuggled up together, snoring and snuffling in a bristly, less-than-fragrant heap. But, if you look carefully at Crumble’s ear, you will see the ragged imprint of Plum’s […]

Toddling Around – The Royal Cornwall Show

Posted on: 14th June 2015

 The back roads to Royal Cornwall Show, past Ruthernbridge and Lanivet are magical, meandering and lined with wildflowers. They seem which materialise once a year for the annual family day out. There are landmarks like the farm with bright blue gates and the shaded valley garden filled with gunnera. Tim and I are joined by […]

Toddling Around – The Camel Trail, Bodmin to Wenfordbridge

Posted on: 2nd June 2015

We like cycling. It may feature somewhat disproportionately in these blogs. Why? Cycling seems to lift everyone’s spirits – with the fresh air and scenery (or sometimes the sheer relief of finishing a ride!). It feels like the golden stuff of family memories. More practically, we have bikes so it’s not too expensive and it’s […]

Tredethick Animals – Chickens

Posted on: 18th May 2015

Henrietta is an individual — a hungry, free-thinking chicken who thinks outside of the (egg)box.  Every morning she hops into the goats’ paddock, ready to help herself to their breakfast. Chocolate, Squeak, Gloria and Gaynor obligingly share breakfast with their little feathered friend. Then Henrietta follows guests through the gate into the chicken’s paddock to […]

Toddling Around – Lanhydrock Cycle Hub

Posted on: 22nd April 2015

  As any parents of toddlers will know, the days of settling into the sofa for a film and cuppa on a lazy afternoon are long gone. It was post (toddler) lunchtime nap on Saturday and we’d left things too late to do anything epic. But – nevertheless – the afternoon needed to be filled […]

Toddling Around – Our Trip to Crealy Cornwall

Posted on:

“CREAMY!  CREAMY!” Our two year old was imbued with enthusiasm for Cornwall’s Crealy Great Adventure Theme Park after listening to her older sister’s glowing reminiscences about the Thunder Falls, Raging Rivers, zorbing and the death slide. Saskia’s interpretation of ‘Crealy’ as ‘Creamy’ was funny, but would she enjoy it on her own terms or be […]

Crabbing in Cornwall

Posted on: 1st April 2015

Crabbing at the coast

Crabbing is the stuff of childhood nostalgia: fun, daring, occasionally hair-raising… I have a much-cherished memory of crabbing with my Dad off a stone harbour wall, a memory softened to a golden glow by the chocolate and coffee ice cream celebrating our haul of 21 crabs. It’s a brilliant activity for toddlers, preschoolers, older children […]

New Kid on the Block

Mini farmers

With enough sweet, green grass in the goat paddock, and a large indoor pen for the winter months, we thought it was time to increase our goat herd. Pygmy goats are gentle, inquisitive and affectionate – ideal animals for young children to interact with. Stroking and hand feeding these creatures gives many toddlers (and their […]

Fun Things to do for Big and Little Kids in Cornwall

Posted on: 13th March 2015

  Holidays are a time for the whole family to relax and enjoy themselves so activities should be equipped for all age groups rather than requiring parents to split their time ferrying big and little kids to separate places. Cornwall is the perfect comprehensive holiday destination for families! The beach is the obvious immersive and […]
