Sue, Paul and daughter Abi are passionate about rural life, probably sharing many of their values with James Herriot (Alf Wight) in their country home and business in North Yorkshire’s Herriot Country. With their variety family of animals including Rhubarb and Revel the horses, Bella the pig, Hattie, Nell and Senna the family dogs plus cattle in the fields and the chickens, geese and ducks, guests are likely to experience the kind of place that James Herriot visited.

Tending to the farm animals is one part of the work but nowadays, attending to every need of guests visiting Birdforth Hall is what makes it so special. The attention to detail that’s needed to run a farm is emulated in the way that Sue, Paul and Abi provide for their guests.
