Don't want to speak too soon but so far this winter has been fairly kind to us. Not too many bitterly cold mornings defrosting frozen pipes or battling against arctic winds to feed livestock.
Our over winter calves were sold on in early January and the shed cleared out and disinfected in preparation for lambing in early March. The ewes have returned to the farm from grazing elsewhere over the last couple of months. This gives the fields here a rest and hopefully ensures better grass for lambs and lactating ewes in the spring. The ewes have all had their pre-lambing vaccination boosters and are given extra food in the run up to lambing.These jobs all done, our attention now turns to the 2015 glamping season. We are busy repainting, updating and restocking .
For the first time this year we are renting out our glampers reception building for the Cheltenham race festival (10th -13th March). The accommodation will comprise of three double bedrooms each with ensuite shower and our spacious sittingroom with its beautiful rural views. This comes with TV. music system, fridge and toaster. With Cheltenham race course just 15 mins. drive from here this could make an excellent base from which to enjoy the festival. We will be sending out flyers shortly. Please do get in contact if interested.
