Well done to our very own Rachel Farley for taking a pretty chilly dip this Boxing Day. 

Blue Chip’s Quality Assessor Rachel very bravely dressed as a goldfish and (wait for it!) ran into the sea – all in the name of charity!

Rachel joined hundreds in Boxing Day Walk into the Sea in Paignton and helped raise funds for local charity Paignton Lions Club.

Let’s face it, we don’t need asking twice to take on a challenge here at Blue Chip, and if it’s for charity so much the better.

We’ve got our own team of Mo-Bros working hard to grow a moustache each throughout November, and they’re doing it all to raise funds for prostate cancer awareness.

There’s some serious facial hair in our Exeter office at the moment, and more than a little competition!

After achieving our Green Tourism Gold status we were determined to continue our efforts for the environment, and what better place to do our bit than in beautiful Cornwall?

 We’re teamed up with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust to support them in their conservation of Cornwall’s wildlife and wilderness, and we hope to keep it just as it is for years to come.

Whilst we’re on the subject, what’s your favourite wild spot in Cornwall?

The Sunday Times counted down its 50 favourite cool cottages in the travel section yesterday, and number 3 was none other than our very own cosy Cornwall cottages, Old Lanwarnick!

Old Lanwarnick The popular hamlet includes 5 Fowey holiday cottages which date back 1,000 years and is surrounded by 34 acres of meadow, so it’s no surprise Old Lanwarnick has been picked out with the cream of the cottage crop.

As well as its beautiful surroundings near Fowey, a small town in the south of Cornwall, Old Lanwarnick also boasts stables, a small gym and it welcomes dogs along too.
