Climate Change on Earth Day 2022

With a degree in Environmental Science and another in Geography between us, it sometimes feels like we know too much about the state of the planet. COP26 was a total disaster and was never going to be anything else with the eco-reluctant UK government as the hosts. But the global inaction on climate change is […]

The Problems of Buying Stuff Online

I had a major panic last week. Guests were coming for the numerous French bank holidays in May, and the B&B was far from ready. The biggest problem was that we had got used to keeping our horse equipment in there – particularly the saddles. To solve this problem I logged onto google and persuaded […]

Mule and the gang – mules, donkeys and horses

How we acquired our mule was purely by chance. A friend who runs Hee Haws donkey sanctuary was helping rehome the unwanted horses of a divorcing couple and amongst them was a mule….for free. I said “yes” – it seemed rude not to – and a few weeks later a large equine transport truck drove […]

The Effect of Reviews on a Hospitality Business

It is astonishing the effect that reviews can have on a hospitality business. Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK and it received a 1 star review on Trip Advisor recently.

We were losing the fight against the bramble invasion and Nik had read that even small pigs can be useful in digging up bramble roots and turning over soil for growing crops. Many You Tube videos later and we found ourselves driving for 2 hours into deepest Dordognshire, past Bergerac. […]

Picturesque towns, bustling markets, restaurants, ancient châteaux and miles of walking trails all wait to be discovered. 1. Piégut-Pluviers Market The small town of Piégut-Pluviers lies a […]

Alternatives to Flying to France

This is a guest blog written by Jacky Fitt. Jacky and husband Tom travelled to Le Moulin by train as paying guests last year – but left very much as friends. Jacky shares her experience of travelling by train from the UK to France using Eurostar and the TGV. Something we will all need to […]

Holidays in the New Normal

They are calling the time after coronavirus “the new normal”. It seemed a good idea to use some of our long days of confinement while in lockdown to try and define what this might mean for Le Moulin de Pensol. We weren’t enormous fans of the old normal. In fact, getting away from the old […]

Live Music Around Pensol

Outside of Le Moulin and our animals, one of our great passions is music. We play Irish and French traditional music and have been fortunate enough to find fellow musicians out here in France. We have also discovered a vibrant local traditional music scene, and I have put together this blog for visitors wishing to […]
