We have lived in White River since September 1978. During this time we have become part of a very special community. Our involvement in Rotary, Uplands School and the Church has introduced us to people from all walks of life and we can honestly say that we have wonderful friends.
Often early in the morning at our home in town, especially in spring, we would wake to the magnificent song of the Heuglins Robin. We determined then that if we ever named a home it would be called Heuglins. So, when John and Tishi Payne sold us Winmarleigh Farm in 1999 we had our name already … and the name was endorsed when we awoke on our first morning at Winmarleigh to the singing of the Heuglins Robin. But we also wanted to retain the name Winmarleigh. So Heuglins on Winmarleigh Farm it was!
We designed the cottages to resemble the style of the original farmhouse where we live. They are named after birds that nest in our garden – Sunbird, Barbet, Hoopoe, Ibis, Wagtail and Cuckoo. There is a wealth of bird life on the property – come and add to the list, which is far from complete.
We hope you will enjoy your stay in our cottages at Heuglins as much as we enjoy living on Winmarleigh Farm.
