Description
Due to family illness we are unable to host during 2018.
If this situation changes we will update our availability.


We are a six acre site with both a croft and self catering cottages.
The croft has a large fruit and vegetable garden, a 50 foot poly-tunnel and a greenhouse. We have Khaki Campbell ducks in an enclosure with a duck pond, an enclosure with geese and 2 large enclosures with chickens. We hope to expand our poultry in the future.
We have a small number of Castlemilk Moorit sheep which is a small primitive breed, ideal for conservation grazing.
The croft is as green as possible, with wind turbine, solar water heating,
firewood boiler and water storage system. We do not use oil.

We are looking at shed construction and maintenance, fencing, strimming, woodland management, log chopping and splitting, bramble and bracken clearance and allotment tending, harvesting and care of our livestock in 2017. Our poly-tunnel also needs recovering in the summer and we will be digging drainage ditches to improve the soil in our allotment and poly tunnel.
