Summer: picnics, ducklings and fairies come to Flear.

As summer continues at full swing here at Flear the little ones enjoy some fun in the valley and we welcome some cute and even magical arrivals…

These ducklings were born down at the pond this summer and have been enjoying their new home.

We also say hello to some newly fledged young ducks just settling into after arriving this afternoon. We set up a pen for them to get used to the area for a while. It took about an hour for all the other ducks and then the family of Moorhens with their chicks to come to the pen for a chat. You can spot one Moorhen chick (black and fluffy) in this pic just above the pen on the far bank.

And finally we welcome the more magical arrival of a family of Fairies who set up a beautiful harvest camp in Flear House garden. Fairies Tink and Willow communicated with the resident “big people” by secret message and have given their permission for us to use this photo, so we’re really very lucky to be able to show it here. Thanks to Sue, Karen, Lesley and their families for passing on this great pic.

As the summer continues well into September we are all looking forward to more picnics, barbecues and beach days!

Spring and Spa!

Spring has arrived here in South Devon and brought us some glorious weather, with lots more to come. We’ve been busy making the valley look beautiful, and building a new Steam Room and Spa treatments room in our pool complex and they are now all in full swing.

The Steam Room is a significant upgrade on the old Sauna room and much more effective and relaxing.

There's plenty of space to sit or lie down to relax. For an extra relaxing experience, choose "Starfield" for your lighting.

Meanwhile, the Valley floor has been a glorious sun trap this week, and ready for the multitudes of spring flowers about to bloom.

We had a shower or two one day which prompted the Ducks to come up to the cottages and hang around for titbits!

All in all, Flear has never been in better heart, there are one or two weeks left in May if you can get away do let us know. Next post will likely be on the Bluebell Woods! See you soon.
