The road to Mornacott ......

 Just a little over one year ago we had a rant in this section about the potholes that were causing havoc along the lane to Mornacott.

Just a little over one year ago we had a rant in this section about the potholes that were causing havoc along the lane to Mornacott.  Finally, after years of patch repairs, we are delighted to say that the journey to and from Mornacott and the North Devon Link Road will now be a smooth one as the Council has blessed us with funding and is now undertaking proper resurfacing!  We're pretty sure that this will be greatly appreciated by all of our Mornacott guests.

Third win for the Mornacott team at the Exmoor Keeper's Challenge

The end of March sees the annual Exmoor Keeper's Challenge which was held this year at Milton's Estate just outside Dulverton. 

The end of March sees the annual Exmoor Keeper's Challenge which was held this year at Milton's Estate just outside Dulverton.  Charles Owen, our Estate Manager, and Toby Penton, our Gamekeeper once again teamed up with the Portledge Estate to represent Mornacott for the fourth year running.

The competition was fierce, and the team were delighted, if somewhat suprised as they were announced as the winners with a 10 point lead over the other teams bringing their total wins in the last four years to three.

The Mornacott team would like to thank the hosts for a great day with great company and what was a great event.

This little piggy came from market

This weekend saw the arrival of our newest batch of pigs named (from left to right) Guinevere, Galahad, Lancelot, Percival, Arthur and Merlin.

This weekend saw the arrival of our newest batch of pigs names (from left to right) Guinevere, Galahad, Lancelot, Percival, Arthur and Merlin.  At only 8 weeks old they're all growing well and are looking forward to meeting the first of our new holiday guest arrivals this weekend.

The pigs are a Pietrain cross and it's anticipated that they'll all be fully grown by the end of the summer holiday season.

For such young weaners they're already pretty boisterous and full of character.

Spring is just around the corner

Despite Hurricane Doris, the occasional glorious sunny day reminds us that Spring is on its way.

Despite Hurrican Doris, the occasional glorious sunny day reminds us that Spring is on its way. Here at Mornacott preparation is underway for our lambing and calving season and the Estate is beginning to come to life with new flora and fauna.

Beater's Day

Another fantastic shooting season drew to an end with our traditional Beater's Day.  

Another fantastic shooting season drew to an end with our traditional Beater's Day.  This year, more than usual, our beater's stoically battled against the odds enduring snow, storms and floods to deliver wonderful shooting days for our guests.  A well earned roast dinner was enjoyed by all.
