The entrance to our car park at Ednovean Farm is now framed by lush planting
It was on the 11th of May in 1991 that Charles carried me through the front door from our wedding reception after an earnest year of converting our Farmhouse into our home from a 17th-century granite barn.
We had spent a year working on the main part of the building to make our home and in 1991 we put a hand painted sign at the end of our drive and waited for our first guests to arrive. Weeks went passed until finally a lady came along and reserved the yellow room – a pretty twin bedroom decorated with Sanderson’s vintage Lilly pad fabric, white washed walls, painted furniture and Laura Ashley wallpaper with a shower room unfashionably across the hall (Sorry this bedroom is now the office) Continue reading “Ednovean Farm’s twenty four years as a B&B!” »

Easter rabbits enjoying a sunny spring morning at Ednovean Farm
A very happy Easter to you all!
This will be our twenty forth year of welcoming guests to our Bed and Breakfast accommodation although as Charles pointed out, we were married in May and so this is the twenty third Easter for welcoming guests to our home. Still I won’t let small detail like that put me off of my blog! Easter day dawned here in Cornwall with bright sunshine and glittery dew so lovely for the day! Continue reading “Happy Easter!!” »
The sun setting beyond from Ednovean farm’s garden overlooking St Michael’s Mount
As we start another week here in Cornwall I thought you might enjoy seeing one of those moments of magic when the sun sinks down below the horizon and we slip towards the night. This weekend I managed to race across our lawn just in time to catch these two pictures of a gorgeous sunset over Mounts Bay as the sun sank behind St Michael’s Mount. I always love the effect that the palms that edge our lawn make silhouetted in the dusk and so i thought i would share it in a tiny blog tonight Continue reading “A moment of magic” »
We’ve had a strange eerie sunset for two nights two – I took this snap from the terrace looking down over the garden to St Michael’s Mount
Cornwall will see a rare partial solar eclipse tomorrow the 20th of March at approximately 9.24 – just in time for breakfast. The next one will not be for a decade so maybe it is worth planning to find a special spot to watch it if you can. Here’s just a couple of suggestions a great vantage points tonight and a lasting memory of the total eclipse in 1999. Continue reading “Breakfast with the Solar Eclipse” »
A very happy Valentines day to everybody that stops to read my post today. These day I prefer to think of it as a celebration for the developing spring that unfolds across the land. The bird song that has sprung up after the long silent winter; the bright green spring shoots as the days lengthen and the sun climbs in the sky.
Of course is is the special day for young lovers who have waited in heart stopping anticipation for the postman’s step or should I say the ping of the arriving e-mail these days. Continue reading “Valentines day” »

We’d like to wish all of our guests, past present and future a very Merry Christmas. May your day be full of peace and fun and the year ahead be full of hope and joy.
The days have sped by in a sort of twilight as we’ve approached the shortest day this week. Each day It has seemed it never become quite light , before dusk fell again and the birds silent for the night as we retreated indoors. This week I set up my alternative Christmas tree as we approach the Winter solstice and looked for a little bit of that special Christmas magic. Continue reading “Christmas magic and winter solstice” »
I set out on a blustery day this week to choose the tree , after a certain amount of time spent in reconnaissance admiring beautiful trees for sale beside the road or leaning near shop doorways. I’ve learnt over the years to take a thick pair of “prickle proof” gloves with me to aid my shopping deliberations because of course faced with a neat bay of Christmas trees, carefully sorted by size and price, my theory is the best one lays undiscovered at the back.
