Time for harvest festivals!
Festival time in Somerset...
a romantic spot
Election month has been a bit of a humdinger, one way or another. And I am not just talking about politics. At Mowbarton it has been particularly busy, especially in the Shepherd's Hut which has been full virtually the entire month. That's meant a great deal of washing and ironing for me! I don't actually mind ironing, with the radio on, and it's been perfect weather for the washing line - mostly. Perfect for the birds too - we seem to have more swallows than ever this year and the cuckoo has been 'singing' pretty regularly too. First heard on 6 May this year, and most recently only this week. But that must be it I'm sure: 'July she will fly'. The roses are wonderful too, which is excellent for all the newly-marrieds. Mowbarton has played host to weddings in all sorts of ways this year: three pairs of honeymooners (mini-mooners?) in the Shepherd's Hut and several family groups staying in the Barn while they attend weddings in the area. And more booked in during the next few weeks.
'What a fantastic place to start our 3-week honeymoon!'
The other big excitement is the Wedmore Arts Festival which beginson 6 July. Mowbarton is a proud sponsor of the event which offers a huge variety of entertainment over a ten-day period. Exceptional arts in an exceptional village!
