We think Tredethick is a wonderful place to visit whatever the season.
And, judging by our bookings, our guests seem to agree. Springtime,
when the days are growing longer and the countryside leaps into life, or
winter, when the fields sparkle with frost and your breath steams in the
crisp air, are filled with their own special magic.
The joys of spring
Buds bursting, birds twittering, bees buzzing… Springtime is a green
light for nature and there’s a sense of growing excitement in the air.
There are new-born lambs to feed (when you see them leaping about
you’ll know why it’s called spring) and bluebell-carpeted woods to
explore. The weather is usually good and places are rarely busy. It’s a
wonderful time to go walking or cycling – perhaps to enjoy the first
picnic of the year. Play pooh sticks in the river or go crabbing in rock
pools – if you’re really lucky you might spot seals out at sea.
When the mercury plummets, our cottages are havens of cosiness. Many
have log burners, perfect for family snuggles, and all are centrally
heated. During winter, we move our lambs, goats and pigs into our cosy
barn to join the ponies, guinea pigs and rabbits. There’s still animal
feeding and pony riding, just as in the summer months. The surrounding
countryside takes on a different, wild beauty at this time of year. The
beaches are empty of people yet full of drama, with wind-whipped waves
lashing the sands. Perfect for a bracing walk followed by a mug of hot
chocolate in a beach café.
Christmas and New Year
Tredethick is an enchanting place to be at Christmas and New Year. Our
cosy cottages (with real Christmas trees) are perfect for family get
togethers or to get away from it all. Just book yourself a food delivery for
when you arrive, then get ready to relax. Animal feeding and pony rides
still take place (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day –
though rest assured we still feed them!).
