There has been a lot of interest in Jimi’s birds so far. Luckily we still have three beautiful free range Bronze turkeys available. If you would like to purchase one for Christmas, please get in touch and we can let you know weights and prices.
“…warm, reassuring and wholesome”. Thank you to all the team at Stylist Magazine for their wonderful review. We do Farmhouse B&B like no other (it’s all about the farmers…!)
A big thank you to Olive Magazine for including us in their magical whirl wind tour of great places to eat around the world. From the local food scene in Amsterdam to breakfast with views over the Eifel Tower to a Launceston Farm fry-up…sumptuous stuff.
We slightly forgot about the crab apples this year being so frantic with picking all the apples for pressing into juice. We managed to save the last few and Sarah knocked up a batch of jelly this morning but she isn’t giving any away so I am going to have to make my own…
2lbs of crab apples, roughly chopped
2 red chillis
2lbs of jam sugar
3-4 jam jars
Put the crab apples in a pan and cover with water. Simmer the crab apples until soft. Strain the mixture through a piece of muslin cloth. Measure the liquid and reboil adding 1lb of jam sugar per pint of liquid until setting point ( if unsure you can put a blob on a cold saucer and wobble it around, if it stays put, it’s ready). Pop into sterilised jars. Yummy slathered on a Launceston Farm bacon butty.

To avoid crowds this Summer, these are our top five picks for adult-friendly day out.
Worbarrow Bay. Park at the abandoned village of Tyneham -all its inhabitants were evicted during WWII to make way for Army HQ – and set off on the mile long stroll through woodland and heathland down to the bay.
Chapman’s Pool in the picturesque village of Worth Matravers with its epic pub The Square and Compasses which only sells pies and it has its own fossil museum…brilliant. Quite a steep climb down to the beach but it’s worth it.
Dancing Ledge. When the tide comes in the sea forms a natural pool. Perfect for grown-up swimming.
Ringstead Bay (pictured). Our absolute favourite. Walk along the stunning stretch of south west coast path to the Smugglers pub in Osmington for lunch.
West Bexington. Nothing there but lots of pebbles, fishermen and a café selling cream teas. Perfect.
If you know of any others, we would love to hear from you.
