Our first business plan was written on a beer mat during a business trip to Chicago in 1999…and we’ve been working towards it ever since!
Living the Dream!
The opportunity to buy Woodcock Farm in 2017 was a dream come true and seeing it all coming together has been fantastically rewarding. Our vision is to create a relaxed and friendly holiday environment with really comfortable facilities surrounded by and connected to the outdoors.
Sustainability and Environment
Maintaining the wonderful hill fort and running the farm are integral to the experience, as we see it, and we aim to do so in as environmentally friendly way possible. One of our first decisions was to install a large array of PV solar panels on our barn roofs, which means we produce nearly all the electricity we use on the property. We believe in the highest standards of animal welfare and we want to do all we can to support rare and traditional breeds.
With Caroline’s background in exhibition organising and Jason’s in the drinks trade, we had solid business experience, so to combine that with Jason’s passion for horses and all things outdoors, and Caroline’s love of a building and renovation project, we knew we had the basis to create an unforgettable venue which we are privileged to share with our guests.
We have three children, Jack and Lydia, and their partners, who are up in London building their own careers, and Rory who was born in 2003 and who has a burning passion for farming – so you will see him out and about tending the animals.
