About Us

Meet the Team

The Cottages and farm are owned and run by the Squirrell family and with a dedicated team who together endeavour to make your stay a happy and comfortable one.

The Squirrell family live and work on the family farm and are the 4th generation to farm at Wattisham Hall. They regard themselves as custodians of this farm for future generations and see the environment and food production with equal importance

Hosts Jeremy & Jo Squirrell live on site and look after the day to day running of the Holiday Cottages, looking after enquiries, bookings  and are the first point of contact on guests arrival. They have two daughters Katie and Charlotte.

Simon and Michelle Squirrell live in neighbouring Hitcham with three children Daniel, Anna and Taylor, who all help out in the cottages.

Mum Pauline also lives in Hitcham and is in charge of the cleaning team: Jeanette, Bev and Hannah who work hard on a changeover day to make sure everything is ready for the next guests arrival.

Brothers Jeremy and Simon Squirrell, together with employee David work on the farm. Jeremy enjoys the crop husbandry side of the business, Simon is passionate about the livestock on the farm and David is our expert machinery operator. When they aren’t  busy working on the land they, together with gardener Chris, help look after the day to day repairs and maintenance.
