About us, Dermot and Sue Allen and our dog friendly holiday cottages. We started with the Old Forge running it for friends in 2005. In 2007/8 we were able to develop our own holiday accommodation, The Old Piggery. The Garden Room was added, belonging to another friend and the success of these prompted a further request to add Red Roofs at Hickling which has been doing very well. In 2012 we are embarking on our next project, New Barn. It isn't new at all (approx 180 years old) but it will be a fabulous new addition to our dog friendly holiday accommodation. Keep watching this space....!

Wildlife photography is not my strong point....

Honestly. There are about 11 or 12 deer in the dark line in the middle of this picture. The camera is actully worse than the naked eye! Even with the zoom on. Never mind. I will try cropping etc when I get some time to mess about with the pics. Double click on it and you should be able to see them a bit better.

They wandered around the middle of the field all afternoon and when I went off to feed the horse later in the evening they were still there, settled down for the night. When they were agitated the main group stayed close together and the stag came forward to confront/face off what they were bothered by. (probably only somebody like me stopping to look at them)

Other wildlife is letting us know that it is spring (in name only at the moment!) The collared doves (the DFAs - Doves From Above) have already had one baby in the holly tree just outside our house and ma is sat again.

The frog spawn has now mostly released its tadpoles and I am just waiting for the swallows to show up. Lots of bird activity in the garden - there always is.
