Farm Experience: In 2012 we continued into the Higher Level Stewardship. In the last ten years our ground has been steadily reclaimed from over grown scrub to the more traditionally managed way of farming and we hope to continue in this way for the foreseeable future.
Eco Escape: Because of our values we explained earlier, you will not be surprised that Foxtwood Cottages is committed to minimising its environmental impacts; we strongly believe that we can make a difference.
