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....!

Progress.....slow but steady

The straw bale barn is on it's way still - no sign of any straw bales yet (dreading the day when they are as yours truly will be helping to cart all 500 from the big barn!) but a man with a lorry full of brick rubble turned up today and dumped a load ready for the floor.

Thank goodness the field has dried out!

Then another 2 loads of thatching reed arrived.
One load had to be taken off the trailer in high winds - such fun! Not.

 Sonny helped......

And a guest at the Piggery came out with a cup of tea for us all.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, we have SUCH nice guests!

Looks like it's all going well, can't wait to see the progress when we come in April - if you need some labour let us know and I'll lend you Leith hahaha.
