The Report has come!

This morning our Visit England inspection report popped up in my inbox – I am very proud to say that it made delightful reading and we were so happy to receive such supportive and complimentary comments about both cottages. Copies of the full report are available in each cottage for you to read.

Comments made by the inspector included

“The excellent comments in the Visitors books, together with the high level of repeat guests for both cottages being testament, not only to the quality, but to the hospitality shown by the owners”

Special mention must be given to the housekeeping as a pristine presentation noted”

“Furnished to an exceptionally high standard with quirky artwork and clever theming in each property, with something different to see at every look around”

Now come and see and experience Olde Farm for yourselves!

Storm Gareth is blowing his best here today but don’t worry all is well, although the garden is taking a bit of a battering and I dare not take out Bentley the Chihuahua on his lead or he might fly like a balloon!!

The Borrowers now 5* Gold

Delighted to announce that following out Visit England Inspection in March that The Borrowers has been upgraded to 5* Gold rated – we always knew it was a special place and a special experience and now it is ‘official’! We still have a few dates in March in The Borrowers available (sorry Bee’s Knees is fully booked) come and celebrate with us! How about a St Patrick’s Day experience complete with Irish Stew, Guinness Cake, a pint of the black stuff and shamrocks – who could resist!

Spring has sprung!

The last few days have been so warm and beautiful here, with the contrast of thick frost over night and sunshine during the day.  The stars have been so beautiful and bright – a combination of the clear skies due to the cold and the fact we have little to no light pollution here at Olde Farm – so if you are a star gazer it has been perfect! The gardens are coming back to life we have daffodils, snowdrops, hellebores and crocuses already in flower and the tulips are not far behind.  The ducks are nesting so the pitter patter of tiny webbed feet will be with us soon and the moorhens are building their nests.  Spring is in the air!

Winter has arrived!

Good morning everyone, woke up to our first proper snowfall of the Winter!  Olde Farm has been transformed into a sparkling jewel in the sunshine.  The ducks and swans are not as happy as they might be as the pond is currently frozen over but the pugs and Miss Betsy have had a wonderful time playing in the snow and chasing the cats.
