To the left of the cottage is a mown pasture which houses the chicken shed and enclosure. Beyond it is our vegetable and fruit gardens, the orchard which we planted in 2005 and Boon Hill Wood planted at the turn of this century. We greet you with a welcome gift of eggs and home made jam and in season, if we have enough for sharing, we offer our home grown fruit or veg. The guests are welcome to explore the property including the wood, but we ask that you do not enter the vegetable garden without our accompaniment, as we are concerned about rabbits getting in.
We are pet-friendly and welcome one well behaved dog. We ask that your canine companion is kept off the furniture and is not allowed in to the bedroom. Please keep your pet on the lead anywhere on the estate apart from the cottage garden and clean up after your dog both in the garden and elsewhere on the property.
