    Horses are our hobby and definitely not our business , but they are a big part of our lives ,we have Heavy driving horse, percherons, we also have smaller driven horses and ridden horses .
    We have dogs which we enjoy walking , all of them live outside along with sheep / chickens ect . We like to be as self sufficient as we can , we enjoy making cakes with the fresh eggs . These are all looked after by ourselves it’s our hobby but something we are totally passionate and dedicated about,,often leaving us out of pocket but we wouldn’t be without them :) We live in the beautiful countryside near a river which we canoe in but also within walking distance of the nearest small town .we enjoy eating home cooked meals in the evening normally around 12 we have sandwiches or pasta but you also have a hob/oven / sink / fridge ect in the caravan should you want to do your own thing or use our kitchen in the house .
