A very pleasant Sunday! ;-)



Talk about deja vu!

We really did not intend to return to Cockington quite this quickly!
But when we were trying to think of an anniversary gift for my mum and dad, Mr S suddenly said, 'Let's take them out on a jolly!'



Here's the beautiful horse, Bracken, with his owner,Rick...our guide and driver.

We'd already taken a very gentle stroll from the village to Cockington Court and back again
and we found Bracken, complete with empty cart, in the centre of the village .
And so without further ado we all jumped into the cart and clip clop off we went!

Half way around the route , Bracken decided to stop (!)
No need for me to tell you why!
However, whilst Rick got down and cleaned up the road (!) Bracken
decided to clip clop off without him!
So there we are in this cart......panicking !!!!

Anyway...we survived !

Here are a few photos taken on my phone whilst on our stroll.
And..
If you want to take the horse and cart with us then click on the video at the end!
Not great camera work as it's the first time I've used the video facility!
































It's well worth a visit to Cockington, if you are in the area..and I discovered a very nice hotel in the village ...

I've half a mind to nip off for a week...do you think they would notice?!

Looks good! We've never been to Cockington. Your blog has inspired me so it's now high up on the 'Things to do' list. Thanks.

Ooh, I think I recognise those copper birds! It's lovely to see you in the photo Sal. You are just as I imagined you would be. I knew you would be a happy, smiley sort of lady. This is how you come across in your blog posts. Such a lovely anniversary treat for your Mum and Dad. They must have so enjoyed their special day. x

Hi - we were in Cockington this week during our holiday on Dartmoor. It was the most wonderful place, but I'm afraid that the horse and cart were not there. We shall certainly be doing the trip there again so fingers crossed for next time.
