The Scenery around us
We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, something of a hidden gem and perfect for walkers and stargazers. We have almost 100 acres of our own private moorland with stunning views across the Bristol Channel to Wales. There are many exotic species of flora here, as well as the famous red deer of Exmoor. That's not to mention our chickens and mini-schnauzers.
Above the house, above the clouds
Quite simply, superb.
Wilf and Dill take their security responsibilities very seriously, but they're softies really.

We'll tell you all about our 2nd/3rd century line of standing stones.

It's steep but well worth the effort.

Perfect for rambles and dog walks
Wooster smiling in the heather
It's paradise for dogs - and people too, of course.
Come earlier in the year and watch the place spring to life. We have snowdrops in late Jan, daffodils in March/April, Bluebells in April - and many other exciting plants.
A great place to relax at the top of our hill...
