Barwhillanty Blog… blooming Barwhillanty
Spring has truly sprung and my overdue blog post is finally here! The Easter arrival of our baby girl, Acacia, has put my writing secondary to feeding and catching up on snippets of sleep – but what a wonderful time! Acacia was born in sync with the lambs, which made for a busy time for our farm manager, Paul, who would have normally had more help from my husband, Oscar, but our little lamb became our world!
All 1500 or so lambs are now here, joyfully dancing around the fields and entertaining Acacia and I on our walks. Playtime amongst the lambs happens around 6pm each day; “Lamb Derby”, whereby they really do bounce and spring about together. Such fun to see!
The recent spell of super sunny weather has brought beautiful Barwhillanty into full bloom! From carpets of bluebells to trees bursting with green, it feels like summer and we could even boast the highest temperature in the UK earlier this week. A true summer holiday destination! Such that we have been indulging in ‘al fresco’ dining, outdoor swimming in the loch, yoga in the garden and jogging with Acacia in her buggy – she loves the bumpy ride!
We have also been building our chicken pen – which has turned into a chicken palace – ready to house some happy hens! So when you come to stay in our luxury holiday cottage, you will have some fresh eggs to welcome you in your goodie bag!
Begin your wholesome, healthy, happy holiday here, at Barwhillanty… there is more to come…
