Our very own Twigloo

Our very own Twigloo

In our local community woodland we have a 'twigloo' - much admired recently rebuilt - and getting a bit small now for Corwin. It has long been our plan to build our very own twigloo on the croft and so when we had a rather quiet Sunday afternoon ahead of us recently we decided this was the time to finally have a go.

Seven days in the Seven Stanes

Seven days in the Seven Stanes

We have not long come back from a brilliant week’s holiday down in Dumfries. In was brilliant for a number of reasons: the company (our old university friends), the glorious sunny weather and the amazing biking. Dumfries and Galloway is not well known for its excellent mountain biking for nothing, it’s home to 6 of the 7 stanes.

Enchanting Your Own Forest

Sometimes, with children, it can be a real struggle to get out of the house in good time and in good order. And you need a good start in the winter because of limited daylight.

....or “taking the easy way out”.

We started a new chapter in our family this September – I went back to my part-time teaching job after a glorious 3 year career break. So when Harry requested a den-building, campfire-type birthday party, I was delighted to discover that Castle Espie would do all the organising for us.

The Golden Valley

The Golden Valley

October half-term usually marks the last opportunity for us to go canoeing until Easter. We planned a long weekend in the Wye Valley and kept our fingers crossed for good weather. However, in the final run-up to our trip, a rather windy forecast suggested it probably wasn’t worth taking the canoe. We decided to leave it behind and find other things to do.
