Country Kids Flashback Friday My Boys

Being Country Kids Again

A year ago I took the boys for our first visit to Coombe Mill which I wrote about  here. Last week we returned again to see Fiona, her wonderful farm and family and to catch up wth TBaM and her family too, as they were staying at the farm for week.

I know it has been said time and time again on blogs that I have read, written by people who have visited Coombemill themselves, but honestly, it is an amazing place. Peaceful, relaxing, calming and beautiful , it has a magic that you will only understand once you have been there yourself. When you are there, it feels like you really have escaped from the rest of the world, which if you were on holiday there I think is a good thing.

Coombemill is also the perfect place for children. I know my two would love to have it as their back garden for sure – a place where they can run freely, explore and play in all that open space. Another wonderful side to Coombemill is the opportunity the children who stay on the farm get to help feed the animals on the daily tractor feed run every morning at 9am. The feed run lasts a good hour or so and as well as feeding the various animals, the children also get to collect eggs and can even hold baby chicks and stroke the pigs, goats and chickens.

Our annual day trip to Coombemill is one I look forward to and I hope it is something which we are allowed to continue each summer because I just love it there. It is lovely to see Fiona and her family and catch up with friends too. If you ever get the chance, visit Coombemill because then you will know exactly what I am trying to convey.

Thank you again Fiona for letting us visit (and the tea bags and cake!) and TBaM for lunch and having us spend the day with you.

Remember – a flashback can be from any time whether it be yesterday, last week, last month, last year or yesteryear! It can be a flashback of your own, your children, your partner or your friends.

  1. It was wonderful to see you three again, such great fun and the boys play so well together. I certainly will be inviting you back again next year, we’ve already booked!

  2. Coombemill really does look like an amazing place to visit. I wish we were closer to go and stay. Miss C would be in her element with all those animals and Z would love playing in the river and swinging from the trees. Great photos; love the one of Burton holding the chick x

  3. Makes me smile to look back on this day. It was one I will remember till next year too. Such relaxed company and wonderful to see the boys building in confidence since a year ago. A pleasure to have you as always and it is a given that you can return again! Thank you for the lovely things you say about Coombe Mill and for sharing this on Country Kids.

  4. I have been desperate to take our two children for a while now. We are only in Plymouth but sadly we’ve never quite made it there and with the new school holiday rules it makes it more unlikely 🙁 it looks like everything my children would wish for (and more!) beautiful photos. Looks like your children were enjoying every moment.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
