Preparations for a wedding

Standard

img_0736Lewis our son and his beautiful fiancé are to marry here next August. So much planning and preparation is underway, I thought a pond in our water meadow where we could have decking and in time our large yurt for glamping to add to the caravans, and for the wedding the small yurt either the newly weds or a fun spot for the actual wedding guests.

So, our trusty digger man arrived to dig the hole, make good field entances and drain boggy patches.

heres Dizzy and Barney really excited about their new playground

Glamping down in the valley

Standard

Daisy and Ruby have had a steady flow of visitors throughout the summer. Lots of lovely people coming for an escape from busy lives to digitally detox and enjoy the beautiful green rolling hills of north Devon. Check out devonvalleyglamping, you can book through airbnb, we still have some dates for September. We will be closing at the end of September and open again next May.

Daisy fines a home

Daisy under the oak tree

Daisy under the oak tree


Jon has worked hard putting lots of love and life back into Daisy. She is a 1970’s Stirling one of the last ever made. He bought her at a local classic car auction. She is painted with Annie Sloan paint and has lovely Cole & Cole curtains. We have put  Daisy in the paddock, she seems to like being under the oak tree looking out across the Mully Brook valley. She will be available through airb&b in August and our website devonvalleyglamping.co.uk  we just have to make the final safety checks, electrics and gaz. She has a double bed and is quite luxurious.

 

A holiday for lily and the doggies

Standard

We decided to try out our latest little gem, she is a Carlight Cassetta, we think circa 1976, she has been brightened up with a little Annie Sloan paint and a new floor. Well how lucky were we with Mediterranean sunshine in Cornwall.

This was so much fun, I have backed them with some fantasic  blue fabric. Nicola Wood produced several designs for Heals in the early to mid 1960’s. Her work is rather distinctive, all the pieces I have come across have a very painterly, abstract, expressionist quality. ‘Vibration’ is typical of this style.  The fabric is 100% cotton barkcloth, very typical of the period.
