Hey, I'm Maggie!
At Cools Farm, on the Wiltshire / Dorset border (southern England), 100 miles west of London · Member since October 2012

Once a teacher but now a completely new life at retirement age helping my husband, Quentin, with the family farm in beautiful Wiltshire - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have a herd of Red Poll cattle here on our organic farm and our chickens of varying breeds wander around the garden and farm. Our house was built in about 1620 and is full of atmosphere. Farming in the UK on about 180 acres (70 ha) is not really profitable so we have Bed and Breakfast in the farmhouse and self catering in the Old Piggery in the garden. We have recently rebuilt the old Milking Parlour and Tractor Shed which we let also for self catering. We love welcoming guests from all parts of the world and especially enjoy telling them about our Red Poll cattle and how Grass Fed Beef is much better for you than corn fed! We enjoy sharing the farm and visiting children often collect eggs in the morning and Quentin is happy to show people around the farm. We also have a small house in France which we let through Spring and Summer. It doesn't have central heating so is not really suitable for winter lets. Our farmhouse, on the other hand, is cosy in winter with its new roof and the new build self catering has underfloor central heating. Grandchildren visit often so you might get to know our wider family as well.
