WINTER GLAMPING IN RUSTY THE TIN TENT

Just had to share this lovely review, winter glamping may not appeal to everyone but for those who want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the simple things…

“Jon and Sally were so friendly and welcoming and got us checked in very quickly. They really have thought of everything to make any stay special including a cute little honesty shop on site. We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in Rusty and didn’t think for one minute that we would be so comfortable and cosy glamping in November. Once the log fire was roaring away we quickly forgot just how crisp it was outside. It was lovely to escape the trappings of technology and enjoy walking around the meadows, drinking hot chocolate on the veranda and gazing at the millions of stars in the night sky. All the little finishing touches that are provided from the tea lights and fluffy towels to the trug and biscuits just for the dog made our stay less like camping and more like a rustic home from home. Rusty is in a beautiful setting with meadows and a little wood to walk around. We saw some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from the glamping site. Poldhu cove is a short drive away for a dog friendly beach with an amazing cafe. Great cliff path walk into Mullion with stunning scenery. We will definitely book again, worth every penny.”

ELDERFLOWER CORDIAL IN THE MAKING…

Enjoying a lovely sunny Sunday out in the meadows picking elderflowers from the hedgerows to make some elderflower cordial, it’s so easy why not give it a go…

Pick 10 large elderflower heads and place into a large bowl, pour over 1 and a half pints of boiling water, stir in 1 and a half pounds of golden caster sugar, add strips of lemon zest from 4 lemons, slice the lemons and squeezing them in your hands to release the juice add them to the bowl, cover with a clean tea-towel and leave in a cool place for 48 hours. Strain through a muslin cloth, pour into sterilised bottles and store in the fridge. We love it diluted with tap water,  sparkling mineral water or added to a cheeky glass of prosecco!
