Val & Pete Grainger and family have lived in the West of England for many years and both are qualified in Countryside Management and have an enthusiasm for the natural world second to none. They have both worked in community development and Pete works as an ecologist for part of the time.
They are both committed to quality and environmental sustainability and no stone is unturned looking for lovely food, if possible, produced and sourced locally for you to eat.
They keep Pedigree British Alpine goats and Zwartble sheep, some hens and their bees are busy pollinating the many flowers in the pretty gardens. Water comes from a bore hole and is beautifully clean and fresh and much of the electricity comes from the 4kw array of solar panels in the back paddock!
Berry Lane Cottage is also a Permaculture LAND learning centre and there are often courses and volunteering opportunities.
