  • Hiking is great for an altitude adjustment and my human needs one for lack of treat giving 🤣

This adventure wasn’t just special because I met a new buddy but also because the location was breathtaking! For sure going to have to visit again to see so much more!

  • I’m not going to water this down for you, spending time by the waterfalls was super fun 🤣

I always let Ashby tackle things his own time, whilst I do try things that are out of his comfort zone, I know if he’s really not keen. And that’s when I decide if it’s worth trying a few more times or just leaving him to take his time. With cat exploring there’s no rush to get them used to things and there should never be any pressure. This is only Ashby’s second time around waterfalls and he wasn’t bothered in the slightest!
What do you think your pet could work on and achieve?

  • Yesterday we took the girls to Wentworth Castle. It ticked several boxes for us.
National trust ✅ 
Place to walk ✅ 
Playground ✅ 
Inevitably we ended up in the playground first. Sandwiches eaten so it was time to bribe the kids into a walk. Thankfully Wentworth has something kind of cool to investigate: a herd of deers. 
After about 5 minutes walking, the deer had been admired (they were beautiful) and the 6 year old had had her fill “my feet itch” (?!!) “I’m cold!” (She’s never cold) so, like all parents before us, we implied that things were even more exciting just around the bend. 
As it turned out, they were. In the woods there were several dens built which the six year old took great pleasure in diving in and out of. I stopped and watched her and then noticed that a large branch was moving. It took me a minute to process what I was looking at. The stag of the herd was just in front of us. We were both completely transfixed. Without any word from me my daughter seemed to appreciate the total beauty of what we were seeing. He wasn’t bothered by us. My daughter quite rightly whispered “he’s the king isn’t he, mummy?!” None of us managed to take a picture that quite captured the magic of what we were seeing but that’s ok. I will never forget this moment.

  • National Trust property; Coleton Fishacre is less than a mile from Nethway Farm.  This stunning 1920’s Arts and Crafts style house is surrounded by beautiful gardens and stunning views. It’s well worth a visit. @ntenglishriviera
