As we enter the second lockdown this year, we are all feeling a bit like Brian the alpaca. What a year 2020 has turned out to be. Nobody could have foreseen what the year would be like or how all our lives would be impacted by the virus. We’ve swung from being busier than ever with lots of last minute bookings (mainly from people who’ve had to cancel weddings/honeymoons/holidays abroad) or having to suddenly close and cancel pre-booked visits. On social media 2020 has been called a coronacoaster and it’s a pretty good description of an extraordinary year. With no guests in the house at the moment we are taking the opportunity to convert a lovely old barn next to the house and hope to be able offer a one bedroom studio (The Goat Shed) and barn (The Cow Barn) for smaller weddings & gatherings by next summer – watch this space for updates. In the meantime I hope you all stay safe & well and we look forward to welcoming you back to College Farm as soon as possible.
