Hi and a very warm welcome
When we go places, we like to find out a bit about our hosts, so here's a brief note about us.
We, Alice & Kevin, were purposefully introduced by a mutual friend over a Chilli con carne one evening, and so started our adventure together. Both passionate about animals and farming, Alice moved in with Kevin and his parents to be at the farm.
Despite not being from a farming background, Alice has always been fascinated by animals and had a love for working outside whatever the weather! For the past 12 years her working portfolio has filled with a very interesting variety of furred, feathered and scaled beings and of course comes home to lots of animals too!
Kevin has farming in his blood as a 5th Generation farmer. During the quieter times, Kevin is found either running his contracting business or repairing and maintaining the farm's machinery. Throughout the rest of the year he farms with his Dad and Brother, harvesting crops and tending to their livestock.
Kevin's parents took on his Grandfather's 100 acre farm in 1989 and alongside their 700 sheep began an agricultural business serving local farmers to help ensure the farm would continue for their two sons. The farm did continue and in 1997, they acquired 90 acres at Fostings farm, just two miles down the road which is where the Pod rests.
Living on the farm, it is our piece of Paradise. To ensure it will survive an uncertain future and changing attitudes towards traditional farming, we decided that it needed to diversify in another direction. From this, Hush hush Glamping was born. We also established our other venture Fostings Alpacas last year which means we are now also home to a small herd of friendly Alpacas.
We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful place
Alice & Kevin
