Meet our fairy family
Our Fairy Garden
Our very important fairies
Once the royal family got settled it was only a matter of time before their friends joined them. Get to know their friends and neighbours before coming to see them.
Lily & Hooter
Neighbours, Lily of Lilac Cottage with her mischievous owl ‘Hooter’ (guests have said they have heard an owl hooting at their windows on occasion). Alvin of Ladybird cottage who flies his flag high and proud and Jacob of Butterfly Cottage with his pet frog Fred. They are the best of friends and all live together on a big tree on the outskirts of the glen.
Layla & Robyn
Layla of Blossom cottage, very well to do with her beautiful lilac door and flowerpots, we think she might be hoping to find her Prince. Robyn from Apple Red Lodge who just loves the colour red, with her red door and red chimney.
Peter & Callabelle
Peter from Pinecone Cottage who also has an owl called Puck and loves relaxing on his chair outside, hmm maybe its Puck making all the noise not Hooter! Callabelle from Cherry Blossom House who loves cherries and has a beautiful ladder up to her door, I think she might use this to take our plums from our plum tree. It looks like Callabelle might be getting a new neighbor as a blue door has appeared recently, we look forward to see who that will be.
Drake & Talulabelle
Ella & Elvin
Warren & Daring Bluebell
Warren and Daring Bluebell from Watchman’s Keep, a little blue door with steps up to it and a blue door on the adjoining tree, is this a kind of watchtower for the fairies??
Susanna, Percy & Tweety
King Oran, Queen Tianna & Princess Orla
Come and sit for a while and see if you can hear the bells tinkling or Hooter or Puck hooting but remember to be very careful not to disturb the fairy house as they are very shy and secretive.
