A Tawny Tale

Penarth Farm, Cornwall.

This is one of a number of images shot during a family holiday at Penearth Farm in Cornwall, well to be honest our third holiday at this location and hoping to return a little nearer Christmas for a short break.

The farm is owned and ran by Christina & Andy who are fantastic hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We all really enjoyed our break on the farm especially cooking the full english in the morning on the Rayburn including eggs collected from the farm chickens laid that morning.

More images from the shoot.
