Our family (Christine, John, James & Sam Bennett) moved to Burgate Farmhouse in 1987.
Prior to this, we ran a restaurant business in Poole, Dorset. Our sons were aged 6 & 4 at the time & we felt that this would be a better life for them.
Sadly, my husband, died in 1991 but we continued to live here & run the business. My sons have now 'flown the nest' (James lives in New Zealand with his wife & their 2 little daughters. Sam lives in Surrey with his wife).
I still enjoy welcoming visitors to Burgate Farmhouse for self catering holidays & take delight in sharing this very special Grade II listed farmhouse with lots of guests.
