Hello! We’re Jon and Hannah. We live in Devon and spent many years looking for a home where we could live and work on site. After 12 years in London we returned to Hannah's home county of Devon where we now live with our daughter and a menagerie of animals including a dog, two cats, and three chickens. We also have 4 legged grazing guests so horses and alpaca's are a frequent sight around here. Our home is set within 8 acres and is powered by solar and a wind turbine.
Our professional background:
Jon – London born and bred is a freelance front of house and bar events manager. Not only an expert in his field as a manager for large scale corporate events, wedding and celebrity parties, he is also an excellent cocktail connoisseur and is experienced in outdoor event bar and catering set ups.
Hannah – spent many years in London as a magazine and TV photo editor, working for various women’s lifestyle and home interiors magazines. Editing images and commissioning photographers, art directing, and sourcing props for photo shoots.
Since moving to Devon it has been our dream to have our own space to work together as a family- combining our event knowledge and creative skills with our love of the outdoors and the nature on our doorstep.
Off grid Living:
Our first year was spent adjusting to off grid life, our second year learning about and adapting our solar powered system so we can have the tumble dryer on! Our third year making serious plans for our future field, tent hire and glamping venture.
Our plans for the future:
We want to make the most of the 8 acres around us. We now have a field kitchen next to the vegetable patch and hen house. This is an ideal covered social space for families and friends to gather if the weather is not as expected. In addition to the existing toilet block we will be adding shower facilities. The field kitchen garden is well underway and we have been adding more wild flowers to create additional meadow fields and the bees and butterflies are loving it!
Planning for 2021? We are taking bookings wild campers and glampers planning a UK staycation. We will be watching government guidelines closely and only allowing the numbers legally acceptable until restrictions are lifted. So if you want to get away from it all with your bubble to soak up the Devon air, we will get the campfire ready so you can get toasting those marshmallows!
