Jenny & Will bought Bay Tree Cottage in 2005, together with a caravan which they lived in for two years while they renovated the house and transformed it into a beautiful family home for themselves and their two boys, George and Alfie, plus two dogs and several sheep!
As landscape gardeners and horticulturists, they created a stunning garden and productive vegetable plot and they continue to develop their orchard and paddocks, planting an interesting mix of native trees and fruit.
When the opportunity arose to purchase The Bottle Top, a Grade II Listed cottage adjacent to Bay Tree Cottage, the renovation work began again and in 2014 it opened its doors as a holiday cottage. Fast forward a few years and another project got underway! With the demolition of some pre-fabricated stables complete, it was time to start on the development of Baker’s Den, Weavers and Foragers, which opened in 2017, followed by Cedar Barn in 2021.
