The Gardens

After years of endeavour, it dawned on us that there are serious drawbacks when you live on clay, thus the garden is made up largely of lawns, shrubs and roses.  We also have a small kitchen garden. The whole area allows you plenty of room to stretch your legs and work up an appetite for dinner.

The Pekes


Trouble with her playmate Bumble and her son Nelson. While they do not feature on the electoral roll, they are inhabitants of Whitelands!  They like visitors and are very good with children but they maybe a bit fussy about other dogs – it must have something to do with the old Chinese imperial legacy! In general they are very good with four legged guests.

For those who do take their dogs away with them, we ask that they sleep in their owner’s car, unless our two agree otherwise!   Not so long ago, there were actually eight Pekingese to negotiate with.
