Barbeque Area (BH)
This area makes an attractive venue for parties and family gatherings or just a good place to meet the guests from the other cottages.
Along with the traditional outside barbecue area and picnic table we have the Gingerbread House. Please enjoy these facilities but help fellow guests by keeping these facilities clean and tidy and locked after use.
Our Gingerbread House is an Artic Winter House from Finland, where they are used to protect 3 men from an artic winter when they are herding reindeer, it is very well constructed and it weighs 2 tons. We use it as a winter barbecue party house and it is very popular.
Children love it but we keep it locked because they need to be supervised by an adult whilst they are in there.
Boule Court (BC)
The Boule Court is located at the BC on the map of Greyfield Farm and sets of boules and laminated copies of the rules can be found in the information hut (IH on the Map).
The game of Boule/petanque is one which is popular with more and more enthusiasts in France and now seems to be spreading to the West Country with courts appearing at local pubs (Kings Arms Litton & The Vobster at Vobster). The game of boules is a game of skill and spirit.
The game of boules is played with four, three or two boules according to the habits/number of players. the but/jack is called the “cochonnet” (little piggy). The game is played to 11, 12 or 15 points, the first one there wins the game.
Mini Gym (MG)
Our Mini-Gym can be found at the (MG) point on the map of Greyfield Farm. The pink top key on your keyring will unlock the centre. Our fitness centre offers our guests a comprehensive range of equipment. In addition to the exercise equipment there is a TV/Video combi and CD/Radio/Cassette player for entertainment whilst you exercise. So give yourself a good workout before jumping into the Spa Bath or enjoying that relaxing Sauna.
We ask our guests to wear clean indoor gym shoes whilst using the centre and to lock the centre up after use.
Because of the moving parts on some of the machinery children should only use the fitness centre when accompanied by an adult.

A range of Books, DVD’s and Games are kept in the hut for our visitors use.
There are often free range eggs in the hut. These eggs come from our own birds and the birds are truly free range eating a varied diet that includes all those shrubs and seeds that we think produce some of the best tasting eggs around (and they should be high in Omega 3).
Jam made by us mainly from our own fruit (we do not grow the oranges & lemons). It is full of fruit and only £2.50 a jar, so do try some and if you like it take some home for the family.
Note: All proceeds from our jam goes directly towards funding the fistula hospital in Addas Ababa, Ethiopia via the Hamlin Childbirth Injuries Fund and procedes from the eggs go to the Hen Welfare Trust.

We have three types of duck on the farm. One Cayuga Duck which is very eldarly and has a black and irridesant green sheen to its feathers. One Ruddy Shell Duck that really belongs to our neighbour. Lots of Muscovy Ducks which our our favourites. All of our ducks love bread products.
Our chickens are mainly Danver Bantams and thier Kin (Frizzles etc…), Ex Battery Hens and some general purpose farmyard bantams plus some generic farmyard chickens. Our chickens like kitchen scraps and are fond of cheese.
