    Description

    Hi We are a English family trying to live the good life on a large smallholding.
    With sheep, pigs, dairy goats, poultry and a horse. The property consists of 2.2 hectors. Two rental holiday cottages, a barn in need of restoration. A large polly tunnel and other outbuildings. As well as a large 400 year old house that we are now restoring we also have a gypsy caravan. An eco project our son and helpers built that we also use as a holiday let.
    We live on the edge of a national park and have wonderful countryside, stunning sites and history all around us.
    Once you are in touch we can let you see our face book page which gives you allot more information about us and what we are doing.
