Unexpected visitors
A special place.....

Welcome to the Borderclan Border Collies website I hope you enjoy your visit.

We are based in the Garden of England Kent, just a few miles south of the county town of Maidstone, but a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the town!

Our home is a 13th century Wealden Hall House. We were lucky enough to locate this wonderful property in early 2005 and fell instantly in love with the whole place the house, the outbuildings, and especially the land, which seems to have its own magical peacefulness. We moved here from our previous home on the Kent-Surrey borders in August of that year and have been happily living here ever since.

We share this special place with our dogs, our cats, our daughter, and a cornucopia of wildlife!

Our lives are run very effectively by our Border Collies and there is never a dull moment. Come rain or shine our dogs are active 24/7 be it travelling to shows with me, helping John in the vineyard, running free in their large paddocks, or just enjoying the sunshine - they are very much part of our lives and we are very much part of theirs.

The whole property extends to some 13 acres part of which is a vineyard which we are re-claiming, and consequently takes up a fair part of our time with the dogs 'helping' us we can truly say that we and the dogs are just too busy to be bored!

I show the dogs at Open and Championship shows around the country, from Exeter to Edinburgh, Maidstone to Monmouth!

I breed the occasional litter of puppies mostly to continue my breeding lines. The first litter since we moved here was born in April 2008 and another is planned for late 2008 / early 2009.
