The accommodation is a self-contained annex. It includes a double bed, bunk beds, sofa, games chest, TV, wifi, bathroom with shower and a kitchen with dining table. We can accommodate a max. of 2 adults, 2 children and a baby. Travel cot, cot mobile, highchair, playmat, toys and bedding provided. Between 9-10am every day we can take you on a tour of our idyllic smallholding where you can collect eggs from the hens and ducks, feed and pet the sheep and feeds and water our pigs!
The accommodation is clean and has been designed as a short term holiday let. It is light and airy by day and cosy by night. It includes every essential but with personality. We want everyone to enjoy their stay, learn more about animals and farming and return home as a friend, not a guest. This accommodation works best when used as a base to explore the lovely local area rather than as somewhere to stay indoors 24/7 particularly if it's fully occupied.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests have access to their own patio on which they can socialise, BBQ (not provided) and use the fire pit (provided but fuel is chargeable). There is a private access, via patio doors, to the accommodation which is separate from the main house. There is an off-road parking space exclusively for use by guests. Guests may only visit the animals whilst accompanied by ourselves.

Guests can choose to accompany us on smallholding duties each day between 9am-10am, come rain or shine. This involves opening, feeding and watering the poultry kept on the grounds. After we take a short walk to our paddock down the road to open, feed and water the poultry there, collect the eggs (some for eating, some for incubating), feed and groom our pony, check the sheep are still alive and give them a quick nuzzle. We finish by feeding and watering our pigs. Afterwards we check on our incubators and hatchers for new baby ducks and then enjoy a quick cuppa! Please note: The egg collecting and incubating is seasonal (March-September)!

Some noise of dogs barking can be heard when the doorbell rings or in the garden. It does not last for more than a few seconds but not ideal for anyone who wants 100% silence!
