Leading horses out of the field

An artist, horse lover and shepherdess. If I am not down in the stables tending to my 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. Living my best life being hand fed and scratched every single day. My favourite spot is between my ears and I LOVE apples!

Oxford Sandy and Black Piglets

The Pigs. The Bins. We love  banana skins, orange peel, slimy lettuce, mouldy fruit and any other vegetarian scraps you might have left over after a good supper.
