Rod & Moyra welcome you to Hazlefield House. 
Summer is here again in this lovely peaceful corner of South West Scotland!  We've had some very pleasant settled weather recently and the gardens both near and far are a treat to visit indeed!  On those occasions when the clouds hang overhead it's still perfect for walking, cycling and driving on what we believe must be the quietest roads in the UK!

A new venture for us this season is an exhibition and sale of 14 wildlife and local landscape pictures by a young photographer, David J Smith, who lives in nearby Castle Douglas.  We're pleased to support David and offer him a platform for his work in 3 public areas at Hazlefield House.

Our hens show off their garden antics especially making dust baths in the herb bed.  They flourish out in the open space and provide the breakfast table with a ready-supply of daily fresh eggs.

Moyra's honeybees are building up well again this summer - 2 have new queens due to early swarming and the 3rd has 22 honey frames filling (we hope!) with delicious nectar from the garden's lime trees.  In some recent seasons they've gathered a little bit of heather nectar from the nearby hill ranges too ...  

We had many nesting garden birds last summer with the return of 3 pairs of house martins successfully rearing their young over the front door this year!  Pairs of buzzards and red kites are frequently spotted over the house and a fabulous cock pheasant has taken up residence to glean from under the bird feeders, in addition to the occasional visiting hare!  The barnacle geese flew back to Norway at the beginning of April and although we look forward to their return let's hold off September for another few weeks yet  ...
