Lunch break. We've had a lovely time at West Bay, enjoying the sunshine, lunch and the park.

The final morning and what a beautiful morning! We're all packed and enjoying pancakes for breakfast before beginning our journey home.

Milk maid challenge! Over the course of the week, everyone has had a go at milking Daisy the cow. Well done to our champion milk maid and milk man with a grand total of 550ml each!

Barn Dance! We've had a great final evening at the barn dance. Lots of mixed emotions: sad to be leaving but excited to share their adventures with you.

Final farm duties

Roadford Lake watersports: we're all kitted out in our wetsuits and enjoying an afternoon of kayaking and raft building.

Brentor Walk. The sun has finally come out- just in time for our walk up to Brentor Church.

Meal times! Everyone has had a great appetite this week. Lots having seconds and clearing the fruit bowl every meal!

Thursday farm duties

The early risers! All dressed and ready for free time with the animals.

A big thank you to the super stars of the campfire who bravely led lots of songs with great enthusiasm!

Camp fire night! The clear skies and stars have arrived for the perfect camp fire evening and not forgetting toasted marshmallows. . We are so impressed with everyone's participation: lots of great singing and dancing to end a brilliant day!

Dingles, Victorian Fairground: we've had a super afternoon at Dingles, learning about the rides, exploring behind the scenes, laughing at the hall of mirrors and finally our favourite- having a go on the rides!

Life on the farm

Lydford Gorge. We've had a morning of awe and wonder. As we approached the white lady falls, gasps of amazement could be heard. A beautiful location for a morning walk and a lunch stop.

Farm duties

Morning free time...after a great night sleep, we've woken nice and early to spend some time with the animals.

Evening activities.... despite the rain, we've had a great evening on the farm. Firstly we enjoyed spending some free time with the animals, then a pie night feast, followed by fun and games in the hay bale maze and games room. After a long, fun filled day, we finished the evening with bed time stories and sharing our highlights of the day.
