About the Owners:

Our holiday cottages are surrounded by the working farm. The farm is listed in the Doomsday book and consists of 320 acres, 100 arable growing barley and the remaining 220 acres are grazed to support around 250 beef cattle. The Elson family have lived on the farm for 5 generations. Gillian and Edward Elson renovated the Barn in 1984, diversifying into tourism. The barn originally housed straw, hay and corn. The two semi-detached cottages you see as you drive into Cargurra Farm – East and West Park – were tide cottages. These were cottages traditionally supplied to farm labourers as a perk of working on the farm. The cottages came with a garden for the tenant to use – this was important as it meant they could live off the land and grow their own produce. The farm is now worked by Julian and his wife Amy who looks after the holiday cottages, Edward and Gillian are enjoying retirement but still help at the cottages and farm on occasion. In 2015 Julian and Amy had their first child, a daughter and the first female Elson born in 2 generations! They had since had their second child a son in 2017. Between the farm, the cottages, the children, 2 dogs, 4 cats and a hamster we are all quite busy but look forward to welcoming you to stay with us.
