Ever since we moved here we have wanted a dog, the farm just calls out for one. We have lots of guests that bring their dogs and each time we said we need to get on of our own. Well here she is Sunshine Honeybeam otherwise known as Izzy. She is a wired haired Vizsla and like a lot of people we had not heard of the bread until we were watching Country file one week and Adam Henson was on with his two lovely dogs. The internet being a good source of information soon identified the breed. Finding a puppy of course didn’t prove that easy. Izzy is one of a litter of 5 and is just 8 weeks old. She is proving to be quite a character and loves people. She was born into a household with 3 other dogs so is already been socialised. Once she can go out it is off to puppy training classes. Can’t have well behaved dogs of the guests showing her up. The other good thing is that for those guests that do not have a dog there is one available to be borrowed. One guest did put in the comments book that the only thing missing here was a dog to loan if you didn’t have one of your own. Hope that lots of guests come back to meet her.

As winter seems determined to creep into Spring it seems appropriate to have a post Easter offer. Mid April is a lovely time to start to blow away the cobwebs. What better place to be than a brisk walk or leisurely stroll in the Peak District. The weather will be warmer, can’t be any colder […]
