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.
