When we moved to Ilmington we never thought that Pam would add another string to her bow by coming a shepherdess.

As the photograph here shows she stepped into the breach when Sid the local farmer had to move some sheep from one of his fields past Folly Farm Cottage and on to a new location.

With the lack of any dog to help him Pam came to the rescue and helped guide the sheep up the road.

All in a 'normal' day in the Cotswolds.

Autumn is well and truly here

Well it looks like Autumn is really here. The patio is now quite deserted after all the activity of the summer time and the many guests who have made use of our new facility.

We are hoping for some warm weather next spring and summer to make more use of the two barbecues. It will be great to see the guests making the most of the facility and for us to prepare some food and invite guests to join us for a bite to eat and a chilled refreshment.

The wall has been planted up already with spring flowering bulbs so we are looking forward to seeing how good a show that will produce.
