We were purposefully introduced by a mutual friend over a chilli con carne one evening and, despite neither of us actually liking chilli con carne, we hit it off! After 3 years together, Alice moved in with Kevin and his parents to live at the farm; our little slice of paradise.
We knew we would have to work hard to build a life here for ourselves, as the farm was unable to support the whole family. To secure a future for ourselves and the farm, jumping into diversification with both feet was needed! And so... Hush Hush Glamping was born along with our other venture, Fostings Alpacas!
We cannot wait to host you!
Despite not coming from a farming background, Alice has always been fascinated by animals from a young age and for the past 14 years, has worked with a very interesting variety of animals, including owls, reptiles, goats and horses.
Alice is extremely passionate about learning. During her roles, she has obtained the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) Level 5 qualification, as well as the APM Project Management qualification.
She now works as a Web Designer in her own business, The Wise Owl, as well as running behind the scenes of Hush Hush Glamping and Fostings Alpacas.
As a 6th generation farmer, Kevin has farming in his blood. He farms with his dad and brother, harvesting crops and tending to their many sheep at the farm.
Outside of lambing and harvest season, Kevin can be found running his own agricultural contracting business, offering hedge cropping and fodderbeet drilling (planting) services to the local community.
And when he's not busy with that, he can be found repairing and maintaining the farm’s machinery.
