About Jenny & Will Dicks

Your hosts at Littlecourt Yard are Jenny & Will who live just down the road at Bay Tree Cottage, where they have 2 more B&B cottages. As part of her families farm, Jenny spent many years riding with her Grandfather who kept his horses at the yard.

Now all grown up, Jenny & Will have been living in Farthingstone at Bay Tree Cottage since 2005 when they brought the property …together with a caravan, which they lived in for two years while they renovated the house transforming in into a beautiful family home.

They have two beautiful boys, George and Alfie …. plus two dogs, 12 sheep, 7 lambs and 6 chickens!

As landscape gardeners and horticulturists, they have created a beautiful family garden, productive vegetable plot and continue to develop their orchard and paddocks, planting an interesting mix of native trees and fruit.

As well as completing much of the building and renovation works, Will works as a landscape gardener running ‘Down To Earth’, a complete Garden Design & Landscaping business.

In between being a busy Mum & housewife, Jenny has established a business from home running a wonderful and diverse range of art, craft, gardening, floristry, foraging and cookery workshops. With a creative flair in the kitchen, she is well known for her scrumptious cakes & chocolates … visitors are guaranteed a warm welcome and lots of delicious homemade cooking!

They are now just starting a new building project at Bay Tree Cottage converting some derelict outbuildings and old stables into 6 more B&B units and a wonderful workshop/studio space, which is due to be finished and ready for business in February 2017!

Why Jenny & Will Dicks chose Towcester

Built in 1913-14 to designs by Walter Cave, Littlecourt Yard is an Arts and Crafts style purpose-built stable yard full of charm and character. The stable yard forms an open courtyard looking south across a valley and the idyllic Northamptonshire countryside.
