How to keep warm on a cold shoot day break

The innovative Norwegian candle is just the ticket for keeping warm on a mid-morning break. 

The innovative Norwegian candle is just the ticket for keeping warm on a mid-morning break. It burns from the inside out and radiates quite a bit of heat. One word of advice....light it about 20 minutes before you need it or risk being smothered by the smoke!

Legal Tender

 Is this really “legal tender”?

One of our visitors kindly left this note as part of a donation to one of our supported charities.

 Is this really “legal tender”?

One of our visitors kindly left this note as part of a donation to one of our supported charities. We were shocked to see that the Queen’s head is no longer shown on Scottish banknotes and a little research indicated that this hasn’t been the case for years. Rather sad when many Commonwealth countries are still proud to display pictures of our Sovereign on their notes. Maybe Scotland is preparing for Queen Nicola’s “coronation” and until such time has substituted a number of placeholders!

The End of the Road....

 The end of the road…

The road is supposed to end about 200 yards further than it now does thanks to a line of trees, swiftly toppled by Storm Arwen.

Quite a bit of damage here at Mornacott with the back on one barn completely blown off, part of the roof of another and we have yet to count the full extent of the fallen trees (many of them Ash already on their way out).

Proof that nature still holds the trump card!

Welcome to Miscombe

Our newest drive Miscombe, the result of great deal of effort from the team during the summer months, saw its’ first run through today with some pretty spectacular results.

Located amongst the beautiful scenery of the surrounding ancient wood and crossed by a rushing stream what could be better as part of an enjoyable day out.
