This week we did a bit of filming for a segment on the BBC programme ‘Escape to the Country’, telling Ruth and Stuart about our smallholding as they look for property in Northern Ireland. It was good fun, and an opportunity to show off Birch Cottage, but it’ll be 9 months before the programme airs. Tell us is you see it, as we don’t have a TV….
It has been six months now since we started offering people the opportunity to stay in Birch Eco Cottage, and not only has the response been amazing, we’ve met some wonderful people.
It has been a busy month so far here at the farm – Felix has returned to us from Germany for a second time, and last week we welcomed Uni from California. Much wood was chopped and stacked, and the woodstore is almost completely full – it is good to be able to see the woodyard again.
At last Birch Cottage, our self catering cottage is finished! Birch Cottage is one of a handful of Green Tourism Gold rated self catering cottages in Northern Ireland and the only property that is off grid. It boasts the lowest carbon footprint of any self catering property here, without compromising comfort.
