About Us

A number of years ago we moved to Brickhouse Farm with our two daughters. Our youngest daughter was later involved in an accident, which left her with disabilities. When she eventually came out of hospital we had to adapt our house to cater for her needs; ramps, level floor access and a large wet room to make things easier for all of us.

We received such amazing support from our community that in time we felt we wanted to give something back. After speaking with so many families in similar situations to ourselves, all of which struggled to find holiday accommodation with adequate adaptations, we decided to try to make a difference.

On Christmas Day 2012, we started to build cottages on Brickhouse Farm, on a site where chickens were previously kept. Then, after 6 intense months of extremely hard labour we opened Brickhouse Farm Cottages! We wanted the cottages to look ‘home from home’ rather than clinical and we hope you agree that we have accomplished this.
