Roskilly's Farm at Tregallast Barton in St Keverne on The Lizard in Cornwall

Roskilly’s Farm at Tregallast Barton in St Keverne on The Lizard in Cornwall

This is the last cushion of the day before Easter as I’m taking a short break in Cornwall so it’s fitting that it’s a Cornish linen cushion showing Roskilly’s, famous for it’s home-made ice cream, sorbets and fudge as well as its cosy restaurant with log fire in the winter and open air cafe in the summer with live music in the evenings.  The farm is on The Lizard, nearest town St Keverne and well worth a visit.
