The Day Louis Came to Stay....

We had the pleasure of having Louis de Berni√®res and his partner Ilone to stay recently. Louis is a British novelist most famous for his book Corelli's Mandolin, alternatively called Captain Corelli's Mandolin...which of course we asked him to play:












We very much look forward to their next visit to Lantallack.

Bee happy!

We have been overwhelmed at the successful growth of Lantallack's bee colony. The honey bees have bombarded all previous bee-hiving records by increasing their numbers from 10,000 to about 45,000 in less than 1 month (according to experts this usually takes a year!!) Watch out Pooh Bear...honey times are a-coming!! It must be something in the pollen at Lantallack! :)
