Canonteign Falls are sponsoring Broadmeadow STFC Under 12s for the new season. The boys looked very smart for their first match of the season with their new strip.  For their first match in Division 1 of the F.A. Pioneer Youth League, the boys were rewarded with a 7-3 away victory against Bovey Tracey. 

Our new fountain by large scale water sculptor Giles Rayner is now open and taking centre stage in our sunny courtyard. Entry to the cafe and courtyard is free so come and join us and try our brand new menu in this picturesque setting.

 

As I began to sketch the very beautiful Clampitt Falls a feeling of meditative calm enveloped me, even against the rush of water cascading down it still embraced my senses and once again my childhood seems to imprint onto my surroundings here at Canonteign Falls. I start to wonder how Mole and Ratty would have enjoyed painting and talking here. I’m sure that Otter would have enjoyed a sandwich with me and I imagine us all chatting away about Toad and Badger. They each would fit in well here, even the singing field mice. 

Next week I will start to develop my sketches ready for the exhibition on the 27th September.

 

We have a fantastic new chef and a brand new menu, so why not treat yourself. Here is a sneak peek of some of our new dishes. Crushed avocado on sour dough, Eggs Florentine, Greek Salad with heirloom tomatoes and nut free pesto and slow cooked ox cheek rigatoni.  Entry to the café is free!

Whilst I sketch at the bottom lake, I have grown to term 'Heron Lake', it is a beautiful day with the sound of the water tumbling over the stones and into the lake below. 

I find this little spot holds a magic all of its own. Behind me sits the weeping willow that rustle when the wind blows (I imagine myself reading here with mole and badger from 'The Wind in the Willows') and as I sit and draw this magical Landscape the beautiful blue dragonflies dance around me.
