Autumn at the holiday cottages

Posted by on Nov 30, 2013 in Heckingham Hall, Heckingham Manor, Hellington Hall, Holiday cottages | 1 comment

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...

The weather is wonderful.   Let’s all enjoy it (although the farm desperately needs rain.)   We have had many holiday makers making the most of the barbeques and cooling down in the swimming pool or hot tub.   Last week a young boy aged 6 asked his mother if he could live at Hellington Hall Barn for ever and ever.  Unfortunately for him, she had to tell him no. We are taking bookings for 2014 and some key dates are filling up . Please do book to avoid any disappointment. Living with a farmer means always looking ahead by a season and I am getting used to it. The excitement of the month...
