Family-friendly farm cottage holidays (and introducing Jowan)

So we’ve been especially busy on the farm in Cornwall over the last couple of months. In addition to the typical summer activities like days of hay making and baling, we’ve also had a few new additions to look after. As well as new ducks, lambs and calves all settling in to life at Deviock Barns, there’s been a new human too! Jowan Patrick Irwin-Bowler arrived on 18th June, and it has been a whole new adventure since then! Fin and I are enjoying every minute of it – and what a brilliant place to be as a family.

It’s a bit beyond Jowan’s abilities for the time being, at only eight weeks, but he’s been along on the 8am rounds for the last few mornings. Typically this involves Theresa being escorted by any number of children currently staying in the cottages with their families – keen helpers for the morning animal chores on the farm. First up, it’s the cats and pigs to feed, before feeding the ducks and chickens – and collecting any eggs of course. Then it’s off to milk the goat…

With all that to do, helpers are always welcome! If your staying with us and want to join in, just let us know and we’ll see you bright and early!
