As we get in to autumn, we thought it's time to remember a part of our short summer. Here are some azalias in full flower last May. Those of you who stay regularly will recognize all the colour we get in the garden at this time of the year.

Linda said 'paint it to look exciting', so I took her at her word. Looks wonderful in the evening with the floodlighting and it'll be a great landmark for any visitors arriving by helicoptor!

This sensational picture of two roe deer in our top field, was taken by one of our guests, Sheri Iredale. A keen amateur wildlife photographer, we hope she comes back to capture our elusive badger set.

Work Experience Day 4

Hi everyone :)

Day 4 already! Only 1 more more day here at Chycara :(
Today I have been busy working in the office, answering calls, taking bookings and organizing paperwork. David and Linda have taught me many very useful skills that I can use in the future and for everyday life, which I am very grateful for.
I have experienced the beautiful scenery here, and what it is like in a working office environment, best of both worlds!

I am off to tend to the chickens, bye for now!

Work Experience Day 3

Following on from yesterdays event of damson picking, Linda has now made delecious homemade damson jam :)
This will be available to all Chycara house guests!

I am very much enjoying my work experience week here at Chycara. David and Linda are very accommodating and I feel at home even when working. I have developed lots of skills and learnt alot by helping here.

I look forward to the next couple days, maybe I will get to make more jam from the selection of homegrown fruits here!

Goodbye until tommorow!

Work Experience Day 2


Here I am picking damsons in the top field, which has a particularly beautiful scenic view of the surrounding countryside.
We are going to use these damsons to make jam, which you may have a chance to taste!
