Spring has, at last, sprung

This week has brought a different feeling in the air. After many days of "ah, here's spring!" followed the next day by "oh, no it's not...", finally it feels like it really is.

Wild plants have been bursting forth and growing madly at a rate of knots. The island looks beautiful at the moment, so many flowers and the light on sunny days is quite stunning.

This photos of blossom in the orchard really sums it all up. At last we can look forward to new season crops, albeit very very much later than planned for.

"The first yurt on Scilly"

That was the local news headline when we got planning permission! It's been a little while since the idea sprang to mind but here we are now, we have a yurt up on the farm.

It's in a beautiful secluded field very close to the beach, but sheltered from the wind by high hedges. From the back of the field you get a great view to the South West, looking at Tresco, Samson, St Mary's, St Agnes and the Western Rocks.

We will be letting this out for holidays, probably from early to mid June onwards. We want to get all the systems in place first and working so that we know everything works properly!

In the next couple of weeks we'll be getting this on our (new) website, but in the meantime if you want to prospectively enquire then drop me an email on
