  • Description


    We are a relaxed creative family with 2 children (10 and 13), 2 dog, 2 cats, ducks, chicks, lots of bees, sometimes a local farmers flock of sheep and a Grandpa that lives at the bottom of the garden.

    We live in a valley surrounded by beautiful countryside on the edge of a forest.

    We really all enjoy meeting new people and the energy they bring to our home.
