An Invitation…

Below is a link to a new extension of the Bealtaine Cottage website.

Please have a look.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this.

Introduction to the Good Life

025Welcome to the Bealtaine Cottage Good Life website…a new, private site, where I can share with you my journey into a better, easier to live, sustainable “good life!”


I have decided to devote more of my time to writing and photographing life here at Bealtaine Cottage.

Along with this, there will be tutorials on permaculture and sustainable living, growing tips, recipes, stories and news.


To help facilitate this, I am asking for a small donation in return for access to the new site.

The main site, “Bealtaine Cottage”  remains free to access and posting will continue there, though less frequently.


Small excerpts from each “Bealtaine Cottage Good Life” will appear here, with the option to read more by subscribing.

I hope you join me!

Blessings X Colette

  1. I would love to be on your email list. Especially for new seeds, etc. I couldn’t seem to find any on the website. I love watching you and Jack around the garden! I grew up in northeast Vermont in the US and the plants you have remind me of New England as well as in Southeast Alaska around Sitka. You mentioned feeling increasingly isolated due to Covid, and believe me, the way the world is going lately you are blessed to be in your own little paradise!!!

    • I no longer sell seeds as I transitioned to writing and publishing some years ago now. I don’t have an email list as all my work on social media is for all, with no advertising to mess it up!

  2. Hi Colette,

    Sorry for the confusion but I cannot seem to make this work…
    I sent in my subscription with my husband’s paypal account and requested that the “Beltaine Cottage the Good Life”: be sent to my email account ( Unfortunately he is getting the emails and I cannot sign in under either name to see the posts.

    What to do? I am so looking forward to your new website and eagerly await access.


  3. Hi Collette, I have been following your beautiful inspirational blog for quite a few years and would love to follow your postings on the new site but the link you have given assumes you are already signed up to the site and requires a username and password and I am not clear how to sign up to it

  6. Hello, Colette ~ I attempted to sign up for your new site, because I treasure your photos, poems and insights, however it will not accept my sign-up, perhaps it is the password? I don’t know what the problem is… wishing you the very best and blessings, Linnet

    • Thanks for letting me know Linnet. I expect some problems at the beginning. Do you have a wordpress account? Apparently this may be needed. However, if you email me, I shall try to sign you up on your everyday email account. Blessings X

  7. Dear Collette, Looking forward to new insights, tips, instructions and visions from your experience at Bealtaine Cottage. So glad you have decided to do this ! Same as others, thought I had a password, but cant login. Help please. Blessings and hugs.

  8. I tried to get my password and it said it won’t do it!

    Can you help on your end? I have been receiving your e-mails for many years and I thought I had a password.

    THANKS! Jerry! Twitter ID: Jerome09

    • Hi Jerome…I expected teething problems with this, so it’s a wee bit of a learning curve for me. post you email to me and I shall sort it out this end, then if all is well you can make the donation. bear with me…:)

  9. Dear Colette,

    This invitation sounds very enticing, unfortunately I can’t login to the link you provided. It says I need to be authorised by yourself to see this link.

    Looking forward to seeing your new website!

    Best, Simon
