We have had our gates open to the public for 20+ years and we thrive on seeing our guests enjoy and relax in the natural beauty of our Valley.
We are doting grandparents to 7 wonderful grandchildren whom we absolutely adore thanks to our three wonderful children.
Pam loves gardening, painting and collecting trinkets and memorabilia which are spread throughout all three cottages, whilst Colin loves maintaining his land, working with his talented hands and brewing his cleverly crafted beers and ciders. Colin and Pam love interacting with their guests and enjoying sharing a cold beverage and a chat with all visitors.
