You don’t have to don your wellies and get your hands dirty when you stay at The Lint Mill but many of our visitors choose to stay here because they are interested in life on a working smallholding. Please talk to us and we’d be happy to share our experience of surviving and thriving on our land with you.

You are very welcome to get to know our animals during your stay with us.  Many of our animals are very friendly, particularly our three beautiful Golden Guernsey goats Eva, Loki and Strega, our horses Otto and Blue and Jack the donkey. We have three lovely dogs; Hilde, Eva and Mouse. We also have some noisy guard geese Miss Bennett, Cyrano and Amelie who are Toulouse geese. You will also meet Mayur our splendid peacock and Lady Katherine his peahen wandering around the grounds.

We have a particular interest in traditional and native breeds, and we produce our own rare breed, organically reared pork, lamb, mutton and eggs.  We rear Shetland, Hebridean and Soay sheep. We keep Oxford Sandy & Black and British Saddleback pigs and Leghorn and Black Rock hens.
