Autumn at the holiday cottages

Posted by on Nov 30, 2013 in Heckingham Hall, Heckingham Manor, Hellington Hall, Holiday cottages

With the summer extending into October, the excellent weather was enjoyed by all.  We would like to hear about places you have eaten at around our holiday cottages, particularly your view of their price and quality of food.  Loddon Swan has been enjoyed by many  (a little pricey but worth the extra!) .   It sources local produce as much as possible and uses Red Poll beef!    It is more than “pub food” and is situated in the centre of Loddon.     The White Horse in Chedgrave offers free taxis and bottles of wine to our holiday makers  (please ask us for details before you go). Chedgrave is right next to Loddon, only the river divides them.

On another note,  Our two in foal  mares,  Molly and Honey have enjoyed the grass fields at the holiday cottages.  They will be coming home very soon.

Our farm walk has been extremely popular and it is good to see the children enjoying themselves and seeing the countryside .   One boy was amazed at all the different colours on the trees  and said he hated farming but would like to live on our farm!

Christmas is approaching soon,  we will get the Christmas trees lifted and into holiday cottages in the first week or so of December.   Winter has arrived!

  1. We have just returned from a week’s break staying at Rookery Barn which we thoroughly enjoyed. I booked the barn in celebration of my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary and they had a lovely time. Although out of season the area is still great to explore for country walks and there is a lovely little church up the road. I recommend the farm walk to all the family, 7 of us took a tour around Lizzie and Nick’s farm and my 12 year old nephew was really enthusiastic, Lizzie’s home made cake at the end and cup of tea were very welcome, thank you Nick for a very interesting guide around the estate, definately recommended. we went to The Swan in Loddon on my parent’s anniversary – please book well in advance if there is a large party, i pre-ordered a cake to be made and the service was excellent, worth the extra money and the food was fantastic!! would love to return again with all the family
