The Canteen at Maker

20140826_122706

Chalet guests suggested we took a trip to Maker Canteen for lunch, someone else had pointed us to it when I posted about places to eat out, so we went off and had a wonderful lunch, all locally sourced and catering for all palates. Spectacular views down into Kindsand and Cawsand from the tables outside and great reviews on trip advisor.¬† I thought it may only be seasonal but according to their facebook page they will be continuing to cater throughout the winter, Tuesday – Sunday 9.30-4pm (though you might need your wellies!) There’s more information about the area and the history on this site run by the Rame Conservation Trust.

The slow life

‘It seems to me there is less anxiety here than in other parts of rural Cornwall less edginess…’ ¬†Kirsty Fergusson in the Slow Cornwall Bradt guide.

She certainly has a point!

Blackberry season

It has been a fantastic year for blackberries, obviously a monsoon like spring followed by a rather good early summer is what they like and has resulted in many berries and some pretty good sizes.

Him indoors and I took our plastic containers and wandered down the cliff where the best examples are (always) just out of reach but we collected around three pounds of them, enough for six jars of jam, plus a tub of sloes to steep in gin (Plymouth, of course).

A quick note to let you know life on a Cornish cliff will be a little quiet, as I head to Bristol for a couple of weeks (for this), stay tuned for when I return at the end of September.

Hydrangeas

I picked these from my neighbours chalet garden. The colours are fantastic and even though they are fading they change shades as they do so. I put them in this vase of my grandmothers and realised that the hand painted colours totally enhance the flowers. It is sitting on the table at Sea Field View giving a slight autumnal feel to the room at the end of the summer holiday season.

Bank holiday weather

After weeks of glorious weather and chalet summer lets we get the place to ourselves for the August bank holiday and… the weather changes for the worse…the law of sod I believe it’s called. In the afternoon during a dry period we went out for a walk along the South West Coastal path and took a photo of the cabins on the cliff at Freathy. If you peer close enough you will see the beloved lifeguard hut at the tip of the cliff on the right.

blatant advertising

This has been around for a few weeks, I wanted to share it about a month ago but I have only just worked out how to embed it into the blog!! Some of you therefore will have seen it but for the Sea Field View followers further afield this will give you a visual insight of the cliff. And to those who have been here this year it will be a nice reminder of your holidays, maybe even spur you on to book for next year, we have started to take 2015 bookings.
