We have restored the buildings to two cottages for friends and family and you, we have just completed the new build 1700 chateau which only a third exists, into our present day home.
It's a quiet, beautiful area, and our pets just love cuddles, and allow us freedom away from intensive care, feeds by the clock, keeping life simple, even the cats feed themselves, and they are all sterilized, and correct weight.
We enjoy them all, but they don't our restrict days out, or yours, we hope you can share them with us and just keep an eye on them so we can visit our poorly parents. + More info

Responsibilities & Pets
If we we're to get a freak weather storm, it hasn't happened yet or a pony is lame, what to do?
Small hay bales next to them, give them a bale per group x 3 bales, total, am pm when your around, lameness, everything you need with instructions, how to, are in feed shed, just give poorly pony a small feed in bucket with painkiller in it and that's it. 1 every 24hours simple. Please note..... Very rare to do this.
Cats, we leave automated feed for them in our house where they like to sleep, they feed themselve, they have cat flap for access. However, they do like milk when they come for a cuddle, l will leave plenty for you.... l dont encourage cats into cottage as some folk visiting may have allergies. They do sleep next door. L leave door open, basically they have the run of the place, but we rarely see them, only gin gin. He stays close by. All cats are clean in the house.
Vet on call if you need him fluent English his wife is English... nice guy.
