The Farm Lodge
The Lodge lies within the grounds of the garden but enjoys a tucked out of view position with a small orchard and vegetable patch. This is where we live as a family and from where we run the farm. We are on hand for our guests if any questions may arise or help is needed. Our free roaming chickens and dogs share the garden, whereas most sheep live in the surrounding fields with our highland cows.

The wood we use for burning is provided by our own sustainable timber forest. The water for the properties comes from our own spring.
