  • Beschreibung


    We are Brian and Lorna we live on a smallholding in Lackford near Bury Sy Edmunds since February 2020 and enjoy all that rural life has to offer. Our place is run sustainably (solar heating, rainwater harvesting and coppicing to supply firewood) with 7 acres. We enjoy growing our own vegetables and raising our own meat, sheep, pigs, chicken, and ducks depending on the time of year. We also enjoy good food, music (listening and playing) and lots of other creative activities (painting, printmaking, and various fabric work) which we are happy to share with you. Our family is reasonably local so you may get the chance to meet one of our eight grandchildren while you are with us.
    We are keen to build links with the local community and we both volunteer each week to support our local Wildlife Trust and Fullers Mill our local Perennial garden.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We aim to live by making and doing, self reliance in community with others living locally. We genuinely try to combine living creatively without a huge impact on the environment. We have a life time of experience to share and think we are open minded enough to learn from others. All are welcome.

  • Arbeit


    Our main focus at the moment is maintaining the garden, small animal care and developing an orchard. In addition we are developing various parts of the property (a workspace and gallery in a barn) there is always lots of preserving to be done in the summer and autumn. Wood collection and cutting and general food preparation and household tasks are always on the list. We often work with neighbours to help out with their projects too.

    We live as a family and would appreciate visitors helping with and clearing up communal meals, this is an activity outside of 'working time'. We are a non smoking household and welcome non smokers.

    This is an isolated rural setting and unfortunately no car is available for visitors to use. There are hourly buses to Bury St Edmunds. We offer a pick up and lift back to the railway station. Visitors can enjoy walking and exploring the Lackford Lakes nature reserve which has 400 acre of Breckland, wetlands and the Kings Forest, ideal for bike riding, which adjoins our paddocks

    Just 5 miles away is Bury St Edmunds an ancient and historic centre of Suffolk, Cambridge and Newmarket are also nearby.

    The immediate area around us is unspoilt and has never been used for large scale agricultural production.
