Thank you for showing us around your home today, how long have you lived here?
"This has been our family home for more than a decade. We love how it's surrounded by nature - only yesterday morning we watched a mother deer with her two youngsters enjoying the grass in the field just outside the kitchen window. We will miss the uninterrupted countryside views, the changing crops and pheasants strutting along the boundary wall."

What's your favourite time of year at Wild Orchard?
"We've never really been able to agree on this! Winter means a cosy log fire, closed blinds and the twinkle from the fairy lights twirled around the exposed beams and special memories of laughter and love at Christmas time. Summer sees us open up the lounge doors to join our inside and outside space together, long lazy evenings, lighting the outside chimney fireplace for extra warmth or chilling out in the summerhouse (once upon a time the perfect playhouse for the children).
You can enjoy eating outside at all times of the year here
