Who we are

  1. We are a family of six: 4 children and 2 parents. 3 of our children are away at University, studying Latin, Greek, Arabic and Japanese between them! We run a Veterinary Surgery and raise some of our own food to eat. There will only be chickens/ducks whilst we are away and these can be cared for by a member of our staff should you not wish to do so. We also have 2 cats. The cats will be here when you come-one is eccentric(likes to go for walks-hence the name Fido) and one is a cuddly beanybaby!
