Somewhere over the rainbow

Finally ...... an Indian summer. This last week has seen our holiday cottage guests basking in some lovely sunshine with the team here making preparations for a busy winter season.

Pool loungers a big hit

The baking hot temperatures we saw at the beginning of this month proved the swimming pool to be an even bigger hit with our guests as they were able to use our new sun loungers.

New arrivals for the holiday season

With our holiday cottages now just about to enter the peak season we have a couple of new additions to entertain our younger guests.

The Eagle (well pheasant really) has landed

Toby, our gamekeeper is busily preparing for the arrival of the rest of our pheasants for this year, the first of which have just hatched in our incubator and are coming along nicely.

Some new faces (or snouts!) for Mornacott

We had some new arrivals this afternoon fresh from the market at Sedgmoor.  Seven new pigs (Doc, Grumpy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Bashful, Happy and Dopey) moved into new quarters that had been prepared for them over the last few weeks.

First of the new born lambs

With the calving season now well underway, with 20 successful births to date, yesterday saw the arrival of our first new-born lambs with a pair and a singleton born to two proud mothers.

Wind and water sometimes don't mix!

Upon our Spring inspection of the lake, we were alarmed to see that a large amount of bank erosion had occurred to the island. We believe this has been caused by the high water levels and strong winds this winter.

Potholes are a pain!

 Potholes (which on some local roads are now more akin to trenches!) are one of our biggest bugbears currently.  In the middle of last year a mile long stretch of the Mornacott Road was, over several days, marked up for repair.

Hedge Cutting Challenge

February used to be one of the quietest months at Mornacott with the shoot season over and lambing and calving not yet underway.  However, hedge cutting now needs to be completed by 1st March.

A big thank you to our beaters

Our busiest shoot season yet came to a close with the traditional Beaters' Day.
