Our ethos in life is that ‘nothing is a problem’ and though we are only a small family business we take pride in what we have created over the last 20 years and it gives us great pleasure to be able to share it with you.
Lower Damgate Farm is also home to Dovedale Animal Sanctuary which was founded in 1996 by Carolyn and started when she rescued two sheep! Over the years the Sanctuary has grown and is now home to many animals with a ménage of alpacas, goats, horses, sheep, geese ducks and chickens. Guests are welcome to visit and meet the animals and often join us at feeding time or go and collect eggs from the hen house for breakfast!

Whatever combination of accommodation you need, we can hopefully provide something a little different for you to enjoy.
