Following a delightful lunch on the beach, where many enjoyed playing in the sand, I am pleased to inform you that we have now arrived at Stone Farm.
The children face their first task of making their beds and moving into their dormitories, before getting to know their surroundings and enjoying a yummy dinner.
Lots of Love x
Day 2 ~ Wednesday 24th September
We’ve all had a cracking day today ~ our walk on Dartmoor was very exciting and our guides were very knowledgeable.
We then went swimming in the leisure pool, which was great fun and got rid of any muck!
Following dinner we will be enjoying some evening activities before settling down for our second night – hopefully all will be asleep a little earlier tonight – I’m sure todays activities and the buckets of fresh air will help – Good night everyone!
Last night we enjoyed a fantastic campfire and the children were treated to a story. We enjoyed doing our farm jobs before breakfast, then enjoyed another sumptuous meal. We have spent the day on Dartmoor and seen the famous AT stones and the clapper bridge. We are currently en route to the swimming baths, and are excited for tonight’s falconry display.
The children had a fantastic evening exploring the Farm and getting to know the wonderful animals. Despite the much expected excitement everyone settled well for the night. We are now heading off to Dartmoor to begin today’s adventures.
Day 3 ~ Thursday 25th September
Hi Everyone – Our filling breakfast had a remarkably restorative effect on our tired little ones this morning.
We spent the day at Morwellham Quay on the Tamar, a restored Victorian Village and Copper Mine – They all looked splendid in their Victorian costumes!
We are hoping to get everyone settled early tonight for tomorrows adventure of returning home to our families (they have lots to share with you) – Good night and we look forward to seeing you all tomorrow x
Day 4 ~ Friday 26th September
It is with heavy hearts and pancake filled stomachs that we are setting out from our ‘home from home’ Stone Farm, and begin the journey back to Bicester. Yesterday, we had a superb experience at Morwellham Quay. We enjoyed a genuine mine train experience, a Victorian dress up session and even some old school child labour involving rocks and hammers! We have now completed all of our chores, and had great fun with the alpacas, guinea pigs, rabbits, and most of all, Anna the goat.
