It is politely requested that you enter the grounds, swimming pool and farm through the gates at the top of the yard instead of the little gate near the main house to maintain some privacy for your hosts.

In July 2012, after 7 years of living and working as a caterer in London, I found myself back running the family farm in The Cotswold's. The house and grounds have been in my family since 1955 and now my fiancée, Charlie and I are about to take it into the next generation! We really enjoy country life and all it has to offer. Charlie works as a textile agent and travels a bit with work but then he is home a lot too; we've a few little projects on the go to do with diversification of the farm which keeps us busy, as well as looking after a horse, a dog and 8 chickens! We look forward to welcoming people here and sharing the enjoyment that the farm brings us.
