Where I Live
WHERE I LIVE
The cottage is surrounded by its own land with stunning views and abundant wildlife which of course is important for my work.
Birdlife includes buzzards, ravens, owls, peregrines and a wide variety of birds down to wrens. Wheatears, curlews, plovers, swallows etc, together with many species of butterflies, bats and mammals - including a family of wallabies - can all be found on the Moor!
In the spring and summer the lanes are a riot of colour abundant with primroses, wood anemones , violets, wild garlic, foxgloves, bluebells, campion etc.
In the winter there are massive flocks of starlings, and visitors come from afar to view the astonishing spectacle of these birds with mumuration display patterns they make as they come into roost .
This is an area rich in ancient and medieval history with many standing stone circles, remains of Bronze age stone huts, long barrows and Medieval long houses and field systems .
The property is 10 mins walk from the Moor with opportunities for walking, riding, and cycling (Route 3 Cycle route) with the Camel Trail for cycling at nearby Wenfordbridge or Wadebridge .
There are many nearby beautiful beaches for swimming, surfing, sailing or water sports. Trebarwith Strand is 15 mins away, a mile long sandy beach together with the North Cornwall Coastal Path from where you can see peregrines, puffins, dolphins, seals etc and there are opportunities for sea fishing all along the coast from land or sea.
Rock, Padstow and Port Isaac are nearby with many wonderful pubs and award winning restaurants including of course Rick Stein's in Padstow and Nathan Outlaw's Michelin starred fish and shellfish restaurants.
Many locations in the area are used for filming. Port Isaac being famous for the Doc Martin series ( being filmed here again March - Summer 2015 ) and also for the famous Fishermen's Friends. They sing for free on the Platt (harbour) in Port Isaac most Friday's throughout the summer attracting hundreds of people - well worth a visit .
Also last summer the BBC filmed the new Poldark series, a major Drama showing on BBC 1 this year. Much of this was filmed adjacent to this property and the moorland views are the same as from this property .
