Oh sure, probably 4 or 5 times a year. Sister lives on the northern edge of Dartmoor, so we go down to her, and then onwards for a few days in Kernow. Have stayed in my birthplace at Pentillie, which is now probably the most luxurious B & B in the UK - check the website!

Can anybody recommend a decent,lightweight, petrol generator? I need one with one or two sockets on, so that it can be used at the allotment, to power mowers and strimmers, and also at home as backup to power two upright freezers in the garage, should there be a power failure.

Have seen a few in brochures, and on-line, but would welcome comments from those of you who've had one.

.........tourists or holiday-makers - emmets in Cornwall, grockles in Devon and Dorset. 

More often used in Cornwall - once across the Tamar it's another country don't you know!

Not that bad a time to sell,Brumbull. Next door neighbours sold their house last week, only on the market for two weeks, and as several people fancied it, went to sealed bids, and they got £15000 more than the asking price. Apparently local estate agents are struggling to get more properties on their books, as everything seems to be selling so quickly! So, good luck where you are!

Enjoy the West Country - when you buy the property you will no longer be classed as a Grockle or Emmet!

Brumbull, hope you took advantage of the Sunday carvery, in The Grill Room Restaurant?

I get mine in 50 or 75 litre bags, you should be OK with those, Dove.

I'm sure you will find plenty of suppliers on-line.
