We reside on the premises at Sticklinch Farm. In 2005 we did an "escape to the country" .... from Surrey to Somerset. Our daughter Anna, married to Martin live close by in Wells. They have four children. Our two sons are both GPs - Andrew, married to Emma, living in Devon and Robert married to Catherine , living in Wells . They have two daughters and a dog called Meg. Robert is a classical conductor and he, Andrew and Emma are often performing in orchestras in the South West. Chris used to work from home for a global IT company but took early retirement. Jan has also retired after working as a Practice Nurse at a local GP surgery. However, she has re-joined the register during the Coronavirus pandemic and was supporting the Test and Trace programme as well as the Vaccination programme. Currently Jan is involved in a new pilot programme, assessing the health needs of Ukranium refugee families.
We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle in Somerset and have developed the 4 acre smallholding to accomodate our growing number of small farm animals. Our paddock extends at the rear towards Pennard Hill. Our flock of Hampshire Down sheep are very friendly and will allow you to tickle their chins, with a little help from some sheep nuts! We have four inquisitive (sometimes naughty!) pigmy goats and currently three kids. You may find weaner pigs at certain times of the year. We have a variety of hens and ducks. You could also try goose eggs from our Pilgrim geese. We own a friendly Border Collie called Peter and some gorgeous looking cats. We have a Golden Retriever puppy called Isolde and a mischevious Siamese kitten called Tristan.
Our Border Collie called "Peter Grimes" loves children and will never tire of fetching a ball and depositing it at your feet for another game.
Sticklinch lamb, and pork as well as eggs are often available for purchase - please enquire.
We often have Hampshire Down lambs for sale for breeding or grass keepers.
Sorry there are no kittens for sale any more!
