A Country Skill

We get many requests for specialist experiences and seeing sheepdogs work has increasingly been on the lips of our North American guests. We can now offer a rare and exclusive tailor-made experience with one of the finest shepherds in the United Kingdom. We are delighted to be able to say one of the world’s best Sheepdog handlers, has joined our team.

We’ll whisk you away into the glorious Cotswold countryside via a scenic route, to the farm near the beautiful town of Northleach. On arrival, you’ll have tea and coffee house in an 18th century farm cottage. You’ll then be out in the fields learning the skills of a shepherd and you will see the shepherd working his six sheepdogs and the progressions from the puppies to his international winning dogs. Then it’s over to you as you have a chance to try your hand at working the dogs yourself and to be taught from one of the world’s best. The experience will be around 1-3 hours depending on how much you wish to do.

The afternoon will be a tour tailored around your interests in the Cotswolds, we’ll have the chance to see the famous sights such as Bibury and Lower Slaughter, or we can take the off the beaten track roads and visit the magical villages tucked away in the Cotswold countryside, or perhaps you want to sit by a fire and enjoy a relaxing afternoon tea in a Manor. Whatever your choice we’ll tailor the day to you.
