Are you interested in spending the day on a smallholding to experience what its like? Have you been thinking about keeping sheep, chickens, goats or ponies or perhaps producing your own vegetables, but don’t know where to start? We are able to help! We offer bespoke smallholding experience days and courses on our our 3-acre smallholding.
Our experience days are all about you, and what you would like to get out of the day. We offer a friendly and relaxed environment where you can take part in the daily rhythm of Appleby Cottage. You can get hands on feeding and watering the animals, mucking out, collecting eggs, grooming the ponies and looking after the vegetables and flowers in the allotment garden. As with all rural activity the exact nature of your day will be determined by the seasons, but when you book you will be able to choose what you would like to do or learn about.
