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....!

Spring time

I've put off posting about Spring, in case the recent good weather was just a smokescreen and winter was just ready to come back. But..... it looks like the weather is set fair for a while so I've been out and taken some pics of the spring time happenings here.

I have to start with one of my gorgeous boy.....

and this one......

The four Tamworth x Iron Age piglets are happy out in the field now .... they were visited today by my friend Sam and her daughter, Kim. I'm not sure who is the most content in these pictures!

And this is our new arrival - Buster the Boar. He's only visiting. His 6 week stay should result in Bessie and Bertha becoming pregnant.

And this is where all the pig muck ended up. Rotovated into the veg patch for some late potatoes to go in.

Last pic is of Bessie - taken by one of the holiday guests who is a professional photographer. Mr Gunn is to be thanked for this and several other pictures which will be posted on here. His details can be obtained by contacting us.
