Stairway to Heaven

 Clover Down is one of the most beautiful and secluded places at Mornacott with views from the valley head stretching to Dartmoor on one side and Exmoor on the other.

 Clover Down is one of the most beautiful and secluded places at Mornacott with views from the valley head stretching to Dartmoor on one side and Exmoor on the other.

On the maintenance plan for this summer was the refurbishment of some steps down to the top of it from the Old Droveway. Now nearing completion they will allow easy (and safe!) to the top of the valley.

July Already!

 Wow! We can't believe that it's July already......

Wow we can't believe that it's July already! 

The holiday cottage season is in full swing and we have been fortunate to welcome so many lovely guests and their families. 

The first cut of hay and silage has been done and we're hoping for more good weather to get a second cut in. 

July also means that the start of the upcoming shoot season is getting closer.  Typically the birds arrive in the first week of July which means plenty of early starts for the boys as they welcome the birds and settle them into their new pens. 

It will be a few weeks before they start to wander but take care on the lanes as you're never sure what you might find!

Deer Viewing at Mornacott

 One of the delights of living alongside Exmoor National Park is the abundance of Red Deer. 

 One of the delights of living alongside Exmoor National Park is the abundance of Red Deer. 

We can often have upwards of 100 deer at Mornacott and one area of woodland often chosen by these majestic animals during the Rut.
Many of our holiday guests will never have seen deer in the wild and we're now completing construction of an fully enclosed deer viewing platform from which they can study these magnificent animals in safety and comfort.

Bluebells in Easter Wood

A sure sign that Spring is upon us, the first of the Bluebells are rearing their heads.

 A sure sign that spring is upon us, the first of the Bluebells are now rearing their heads. In the next few weeks Easter Wood will, once more, be carpeted in a mass of blue as the weather warms and the sun shines.

Saturday saw the final journey of a great man the like of whom we’ll probably never see again.
