Spring has arrived and the plum trees are all in blossom. Hopefully the frost will stay away so that we get a good harvest for our much loved Blaisdon Plum Jam.
Izzy also loves the sunny weather.
Are you ready for the MTB Wild Boar Chase on Sunday May 12th? Castlerag and Horse GIn self catering cottages available for the weekend in Parkend at www.castlemainmill.com. Separate bike shed for each cottage, bike washing facilities, local friendly pubs and a warm welcome to everyone.
The Hawfinches and Crossbills have returned to Parkend.
The Crossbills are regularly seen by the church across the road from Castlemain Mill and although the Hawfinches haven't appeared yet in our garden they have been seen by the cricket pitch in the village.
Stay in our self contained cottages and see these elusive birds.

The trees are all changing colour now and walking through the forest is beautiful at this time of year. Lots of deer, wild boar and buzzards around at the moment.. Bring the dog and stay in our warm cosy cottages after a long walk.
