Down on the Farm - October 2019

The golden colours and fruit harvest are here, as Autumn arrives at Callestock Courtyard with a flourish. The apple tree in the orchard is laden with fresh crispy fruit, the pumpkins are ready to burst and the Autumn leaves are fluttering down like confetti - we love it!

Down on the farm - August 2019

It's been another action-packed few weeks at Little Callestock Farm, with the arrival of a very special four-legged guest, staying with the cows, a visit from some feathered friends, and the harvest of our newest fruit trees.

Down on the farm - Summer 2019

This time last year we were sweltering in the hottest June for decades - but in 2019, things are a little more predictable. We still have sunshine and pleasant temperatures, but the occasional showers mean that grass at Callestock Courtyard is lush and green rather than dry and brown and the cows are cool and chilled in the shade of the trees. Summer is here which means Nick is busy on the farm while our guests are out and about enjoying the county.

A Valentines' Gift for the Cows

If you've ever visited Callestock, you'll know how much Nick loves his cows. He's looked after the herd since he was a young lad and has grown very attached over the years - so it was no surprise in February when he unwrapped a special Valentines' treat for the girls.

Down on the farm - Autumn 2018

Life at Callestock revolves around the countryside, the wildlife, and the weather. This time of year is fantastic for the animals - there's a feast of crunchy green grass for the cows, the trees and bushes are heavy with berries for the wild birds, and Sandy loves helping me pick the fresh veg from the patch in the garden.

Down on the farm - July 2018

The dry weather is a big hit with guests - long days on the beach, barbecues on the patio, lazy walks along the coast... but for Nick and the farm, it presents a unique set of challenges!

Lovely video showing our baby calves that were born last year, enjoying some rest and relaxation in the little copse at the top of the farm.
