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....!

The calm before the storm.

Our first delivery of Norfolk reed, intended for the roof of the barn.  The thatchers are due to start in July.  Many more loads of reed to come and a whole lot of work, mess and stress.  This blog will document progress ......and quite possibly my nervous breakdown!!

The beginning of a very exciting year! It's so unusual to see a thatched roof actually taking shape, so, once they start, lots of photos, please Sue.
