  • Description


    We are a family farm in the Cotswolds with arable and grassland. We rear beef, sheep and pigs to sell from the farm shop and have a B&B and small camp site. We have 2 children (Meg 17 and Sam 18), 3 dogs , 2 alpacas, 3 cats and 3 horses. We are busy on the farm so are looking for help in the house and garden. There is a train station in Moreton in Marsh (from Oxford and London) and we can collect you from there.

    Travellers will learn about life on a small, mixed, family farm. We rear our own pigs, sheep and cattle, make our own sausages and bacon... We are in a very small village (9 houses) but are only 1 mile from our nearest town Moreton in Marsh where there are shops/pubs/train/bus.

    We live in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds and are a friendly bunch! There are good public transport links 1 mile away in Moreton in Marsh (train to Oxford and London and buses to Cheltenham, Cirencester and Stratford upon Avon). We have travelled and worked away from home in the past so know how it feels...
