The day the Farrier came to Manor Farm

What an exciting day at Manor FarmDSCF2312

The horses and ponies were due to be re shod and our friendly and caring Farrier ‘Roger’ came along this afternoon.



Farriery is believed to have been practised ‘firstly’ in the Roman Empire so how wonderful to see the ancient craft of a Farrier at work.

Its good to see father and son working together keeping this ancient craft ‘alive’.

I thought I would share this experience with you.

Lincoln Christmas Market

I’ve had a super weekend. I visited the city of Lincoln which is well within easy travelling distance from Manor Farm Cottage.

I was amazed with the character and architecture Lincoln had to offer, not to mention a suberb Christmas Market selling crafts, locally sourced produce and continental stalls selling their interesting goods. I certainly enjoyed the mulled wine and Bradwurst!! and of course the’chestnuts roasting on an open fire’, absolutely delicious.

Lincoln Christmas Market is a ‘must’ for guests visiting Manor Farm Cottage.DSCF2307DSCF2304


Christmas Craft Fair at Manor Farm

Christmas Craft Stall in the Stable

Christmas Craft Stall in the Stable

What a wonderful weekend we have just had a Manor Farm……

Saturday evening was full of fun and festivities as we held our ‘first’ craft fair in the stables which were beautifully decorated with holly and ivy, not to mention the stunning craft stalls!!

How nice to hear the chatter of the villagers as they all assembled around the brasier in the couryard, mulled wine in one hand, home made mince pie in the other, ready to hear Christmas carols played by our local ‘Shepley Band’.

As I gazed around me on that cold, crisp evening I thought ‘what a wonderful place this is’……………

Autumn Walk

What a super day for an Autumn walk in the stunning countryside around Manor Farm Cottage….

I put on my wellies and off I went to discover the beautiful’ hidden gems’ of the area.

I thought I would share my ‘finds’ with you. Hope you enjoy!!DSCF2281
