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.
