What our guests say

31st May 2015

This month we report on our chickens and their names, work at Lochnagar Crater and one family's story of their grandad who served and survived the war. Last month we introduced our 6 chickens. The girls are now settled in and loving their life here at no.fifty6. They roam around the garden by day. We have had the odd naughty moment, a cucumber plant scratched to bits, seedlings tray knocked over, gravel scratched all over the patio…but they are the most adorable girls each with a character and the eggs are wonderful and they are laying well. Clever girls.
