We have a new addition to the @ciderhouseexperience and @starbedhideaways team - Briar! She is happily settling in and making herself very much at home! A self proclaimed outstanding gardener- it’s my gardening glove she has pinched in the photo 🙄 a happy, wriggly, chewy little bundle of excitement! Never happier than when carrying her latest find - shoes, PE kit, school bags, tea towels pinched from the Aga - she is a pickle but luckily we adore her!! 🐶💕

This is what I LOVE about Sunday afternoons - picking blackberries and gathering early windfalls in the sunshine for supper’s crumble and then making biscuits and shortbread with the children - late summer, special family time.
When you are lucky enough to live on a National Trust estate and enjoy its magical gloriousness when everyone else has gone home you really get to know it well, like the last spots to catch the evening sun - this is one of them! The wall holds the heat of the day and makes for a wonderfully secluded spot for a quiet moment, a doze in the sun, a few undisturbed pages of your book or a large G&T! #nationaltrust #kitchengarden #secretescape #andrelax #taketime #holidaymode #luxurybedandbreakfast #visitdartmoor #visitdevon #getawayfromitall #autumngetaway #getaway #staycation #lovewhereyoulive

Lemon drizzle hot out of the Aga! 😋
Shelling the harvest, you will have to excuse me finger in the shot, the children LOVE shelling peas and practically fight to shell the most usually pinging a few across the table in the process - truth be told there were lots more that should have been in the bowl but instead were popped into greedy little mouths. They are delicious, sweet, tender and full of sunshine - no cooking required and I don’t think those that did make the bowl will see the sun set! These are our first peas of the season and they are scrumptious! Happy children, happy harvest!
