Leading horses out of the field

An artist, horse lover and shepherdess. If I am out for a hack with my American Quarter horses you will find me painting up a storm or tending to my rare breed Welsh Llanwenog sheep.

Gorgeous cockerel

If you're lucky we might just let you have one of our eggs for breakfast.

Cuddles with a springer spaniel

A retired Geography teacher dinghy sailor and classic car enthusiast. When I am not taking care of the bookings I can be found out making the most of the beautiful farm with my lovely springer spaniels. 

Sheep being stroked

Minty, the pet sheep. Loves a scratch and being hand fed. His favourite spot is between his ears and he is a big fan of apples!
