In June this year we decided to go on a long weekend break to our favourite Cornwall. We usually camp, but after the problems last year decided on a cottage. Having browsed the net, I found the perfect little get away.
It really was special, our little Cornish Vintage retreat in Porthcothan. On arriving I recognised the place, later to realise a TV program had been made about it.
The Red Buoy, was the wonderful home of artist & film maker Jane Drake. Who’s husband made the film The Wrecking Season, an insight into the life of a fisherman, beachcomber and wrecker, gather the interesting finds of north Cornwall beaches.
The place was full of objects found and tracked back to there origins, be that the Amazon or Florida. It really is an interesting watch. I am yet to watch her current film the Art of Catching Lobsters, a look into her life during her husbands illness and death, though it seems like an emotional insight into grief and love.
The house was perfect, vintage, quaint, and exactly what I love.
