Rooky's Nook: Cottage of the Month in America!

This month, the popular and eminently readable American blogsite, Country Vacations and Resorts has selected Cornwall as a County to recommend to its vacation hungry readers. They've chosen Rooky's Nook in Tintagel as their holiday cottage of the month.

Once you're read the article you might just want to beat the rush and book a holiday at Rooky's Nook quickly before our cousins across the pond get in first.

Rooky's Nook, as with all 'Cottages of the Month' appears on My Favourite Holiday Cottages.

Dog-friendly Holidays in Cornwall

If like me you don't like to leave your dog when you go away on holiday, bring them  with you, where you can all enjoy numerous walks - inland or coastal, dog-friendly beaches -Trebarwith Strand, Daymer Bay, plus the field at the back of Rooky's Nook.

I have 2 dogs, Rolo (short haired German pointer), and Noodles (cocker spaniel) who love living here
.... and they say ....'it's a dog's life'....well I'd change places with them any day!!

'Team effort' row-making and baling (15 bales in total) in the paddock behind
Rooky's Nook

The Harvest begins!

Hot sunny days allow the grass to be cut in the field 
behind Rooky's Nook - ready to be baled!
The grass is cut, turned and dried before being baled,
- and in the process turns from green to golden brown!
