We have a new furry presence at the farm.  Meet Humphrey, a local lad about three months old who just joined the Wyndford team. It is good to have this little pitch black bundle of fun with a V8 engine after a sad year of losing so many special animals. 

It is also exciting to welcome back guests who have been joining us for Christmases past - much like family coming home. Catching up with news, seeing how the kids have grown and chatting about upgrades around the farm and in their rooms since last visit.   Fun to see friends greeting friends made at Wyndford, who enjoying meeting up again.
We have thrown Hannalien into the deep end at Wyndford! She has been with us just a short while and running the kitchen at this time of year is certainly trial by fire! Look out for her and give her a warm welcome… she, and our faithful team will be feeding you! 

Well, we thought that if we bought Molly a halo and some wings for Christmas it might make her … well, good…. Didn’t work!!! Obviously behaving just does not sit comfortably with her - Sprocket insists that she could have told me that, before we purchased the shiny headgear.  Ah well, off the wall she may be but we all love the girls!

Our reindeer greet you as you make your way down the drive where Rudolf gives you a warm welcome at reception.  We mentioned that they have new coats… and here they are in all their Christmas Glory!  
The Cake is ready, the menus planned, Santa has our co-ordinates and all that is left for us to say is once again we wish you…
Mary’s Joy
Joseph’s Wonder
Jesus’ Peace
The Wise Men’s Awe
The Shepherds Excitement
And Gabriel’s Hope
Until we get to see you …. stay well and travel safe if you are on the move over the festive period, we’ll chat again in 2018.

PS: Molly’s letter …..“Dear Santa before I explain… how much do you know already?”

November news from the farm.....

We, like so many around the country have eagerly awaited the rains and feel a bit like a fairy dancing on her toes trying to capture the clouds as they scud overhead ….and then they move on.  Yesterday was a spectacular display, great for pictures, but unfortunately did not leave us with more than a few drops on the farm.


Taking a drive or a walk to the other end of the farm, is a wonderful place to listen to the birds, the river trickling (just) past, and gaze upon the mountains…. A good soul space!  We share it with you …..

We had a very successful and happy (if the chatter in the dining room was anything to go by) bowls week. The green played well, hats off to Joseph our head gardener, and the weather was bright.  We salute our overall winner, Letitia Visser, and look forward to welcoming you all back next time.

Our reindeer have come out of hibernation (really, they do!) been dusted off and are getting new coats for Christmas. 

After ten years of amazing Christmas cakes from Mrs Callister, this year we are having a go ourselves.  Much ‘googling’ and giggling!!   

We also found the perfect Christmas present for Molly … watch this space….!
And to close… allow us to brag a little!  We served our own lamb for lunch accompanied by our own garden spinach and carrots  - to finish – Rhubarb (also from the garden) Crumble and fresh cream (thanks to Cappachino the cow!) Yum!

Enjoying all of this for a two night stay for two out of season will be Johnny Elsegood, who is our monthly draw winner.  Whoop whoop, come and enjoy!

Until we see you …. (to those that are already counting the sleeps!) stay well and travel safe if you are on the move over the festive period.
