January 2014

So another year has slid past us down here at Port Quin. The run up to the new year was spent working on the new barn conversion we are completing for the 2014 holiday season, its set to be a cracking place to stay with lots of ensuite bathrooms and amazing views down to Port Quin bay.We have, as always been busy on the farm with the cycle of seasons bringing the next set of jobs. At the moment we are all hands on deck with the lambing season which is going well after a bit of a shakey start. we have turned lots of young lambs out into the fields. We are now hoping for some sunny weather as the days start to get longer which will help the youngsters grow and be healthy. We have also now got the fun bit of the buying all the furnishings and carpets etc for the barn along with quite a lot of painting!
