Thanks to all those who have rung this morning to enquire if the Ark was completed on time. Cornwall did get a bit of a lashing last night, but I am looking out of the window on a beautiful sunny morning, the grass is drying out nicely and there may be the chance of a bit of mowing later this afternoon.

However, we did have one 'incident' last week when a little wind blew through and took out one of the big trees in our own garden.

The casualty managed to land just between the deck and the pond so no major damage was done.

And look on the bright side...we've got enough fuel to keep the chiminea going for several centuries and we now do a rather nice line in Jamie Oliver 'stylee' wooden platters!

Cornwall Named Top UK Holiday Destination!

Cornwall has once again fought off competition from across the country to be crowned ‘Best UK Holiday County or Region’ in the British Travel Awards (on Thursday 4th November) for the second year running.

The county attracted the lion’s share of the public vote outshining neighbour, Devon, which along with Cumbria in the Lake District, was announced as a runner-up. This marked an impressive double award win for Cornwall as St Ives was also named ‘Best UK Seaside Town’.

Over 220,000 people voted in this years British Travel Awards which boast over seventy categories and span every type of holiday experience, making them the largest awards programme in the UK. They are widely referred to as the “Oscars” of the travel industry and are the most recognisable and sought-after accolades in the sector.

Malcom Bell, Head of Tourism at VisitCornwall, the Cornwall Development Company tourism service for the county, collected the Awards on behalf of Cornwall and St Ives at the glittering ceremony which was held at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, South West London: 'I am immensely proud to accept these Awards for Cornwall and St Ives. To win at both county and town level is a huge achievement and the fact that the Awards are based on public opinion make them even more significant.'



Well Green actually....

Guests throughout the summer have been reporting sitings of the Green Woodpecker....but until yesterday, I hadn't seen it. However, I was just sitting in the office, glanced out of the window and there it was, perched on a palm. Unfortunately, a mad scramble for the camera just produced a picture of the you'll have to make do with an 'artists impression'....but that is my mission for the winter...a picture of 'Woody'.
