We hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year? We certainly did, although it feels like ages ago now!

As we move into February, we are already looking forward to the Spring, with a few new calves already being born – things are going to start getting hectic again on the farm!

Calves

As you’ve probably seen in the news recently, the West Country has taken a bit of a battering with wind and rain over the Winter, with some poor families, farms, and businesses being flooded on the Somerset Levels. We personally know a few people affected, and we’re hopeful that plans will be put in place to prevent such bad flooding again in the future, and that they will be back to normal as soon as possible.

Thankfully, all the rain and flooding has not affected our farm, as we are lucky enough to be 400ft above sea level at the foot of the Quantock Hills. Our fields are pretty soggy after a very wet January, but we are sure we’ll start getting some sunshine soon, and then we can let the herd out into some fresh grass, after their Winter being kept warm and dry in the barn.

We’re very much looking forward to getting the yurts back up in the yurt field, as it really doesn’t look the same with four empty decks, so ‘Operation Yurt Assembly’ will start around the end of February/Beginning of March, in time for us to be open in April. We’re already getting a few bookings for The Easter and Summer Holidays, so pop along and have a look on our bookings page to make sure you don’t miss out on a yurt getaway with us this year.

This year, we are also mixing things up a bit, and will be adding new glamping accommodation to the site in time for the Summer Holidays, so watch this space for updates on what it is! I may not be able to keep it a surprise for much longer 😉
