Meet your host…

Lovett Family

The Lovett Family have been farming the land for generations and welcoming guests for over 40 years. The old stone farm cottage still exists. Cattle mainly Hereford @ Charolais and sheep namely Suffolk @ Scotch are reared on the farm. There is always lots of work to be done on the farm with the vegetables being sown in spring and silage cutting during the summer months. Many of our guests take a stroll before or after breakfast to the farm, enjoying the panoramic views on the way.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à White Heather; nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'accueil de Sheila, toujours aux pe***** soins pour nous et toujours avec des petites attentions. Le petit déjeuner personnalisé est excellent (oeufs au bacon, saumon (!!) , pancake etc... La chambre familiale est très confortable, les lits moelleux, le salon très reposant. On se sentait comme à la maison. Merci pour tout.
