Having lived in their family house in Crosscoombe for over 25 years, The Old Goathouse was originally intended as overflow accommodation for their two grown-up children. However, as they began to transform the barn, Roger and Glen decided on a change of plan and a new venture, choosing to open the doors of The Old Goathouse to guests.
Having always been in the service industry, the couple started an outside catering business over twenty years ago, working largely on location with film and music production companies. Familiar foodie faces at The Glastonbury Festival; Roger and Glen have had backstage passes to many big music events, catering for superstars and their crew. Now they are calling time on the catering business and focusing their passions closer to home. Roger and Glen want to share their world they love with the people who come and stay.
Passionate about the natural environment and sustainable living, Roger and Glen have renovated the property with their strong ethical values in mind and have used recycled materials wherever possible, up-cycled furniture and sourced organic toiletries (even the ticking curtain fabric is organic). The electricity is generated from solar panels housed in the paddock. This isn’t hippy living, its real living with a lovely style.
You couldn’t find more welcoming hosts. On your arrival there will be a breakfast basket with handcrafted organic soughdough bread, homemade jams, and locally sourced fruit juices.
Passionate about everything they do, Roger and Glen like to see life with a different perspective. If they are not catching waves, they will be crossing continents on one of their adventure cycling trecks.
