In my roll as a Norfolk Community Artist I was
called by Ben to come and visit
Little Abbey Farm at Pentney.
Ben and Dianne run a small mixed farm with
Bed and Breakfast.
Like a lot of different businesses they are looking to
extol their assets and best features.
Little Abbey Farm is a working Farm with a great
extended garden room, the light is wonderful.
I had a visit around the farm and it's inspiration.
The farm has great animals who are used to human contact.
Spike above was so lovely he let me stroke and rub his head,
and take his picture. He is an artist dream as he wasn't bothered at
all. I could have set up my easel and he wouldn't have
batted an eye!
The pigs were adorable with a little piglet squeaking around,
not bothered by us at all.
There was so much to inspire an artist with old milk churns
and farm machinery, horse drawn ploughs to an old
but huge combine harvester.
I would recommend it definitely for
Bed and Breakfasts, they have the Breakfast Award
and a Silver Award too!
Also a venue for future events like
Retreats for small groups to enjoy the
rural location and the first rate food.
I am looking into helping run a Quilting Retreat and
an Arts Weekend.
