hi, I am Gillian. I live on a beautiful, rural farm with my daughter Nicola and my Dachshund puppy Chloe. We used to run the farm as an organic goat and sheep dairy farm, producing yoghurt, milk and cream.
We no longer do this but have converted our processing buildings into additional accommodation that we can let out to people looking for a relaxing and peaceful break with stunning views.
We grow vegetables and soft fruits, together with other home baked goodies that will be available for our visitors!
Both Nicola and I enjoy making Jewellery and other craft items, as I originally trained as a fashion designer.
We enjoy camping, going to the beach, walking in woods and we really appreciate good food! My ideal way of travelling is by train.
