Our names are Gavin and Eve Curnow and we have three children.
One of our daughters, Rosie, is a wheelchair user with multiple complex needs. At the beginning of 2008 Rosie became eighteen years of age and we all made the transition from Children's Services to Adult Services.
After a range of experiences, some good and some less so, we decided to use the cottages we have in the courtyard to the rear of our farmhouse to provide a supported living scheme for young adults with learning disabilities.
As parents of a young adult with highly complex needs we feel we are able to provide an environment in which each person will be encouraged and supported to explore and achieve their potential.
We are passionate about choice and quality of life and believe everyone deserves to be treated as an individual and to follow the path they choose.
Higher Green Farm, a Seventeenth Century farmhouse, is in the village of Poulshot, a couple of miles from the attractive market town of Devizes in Wiltshire.
We are fortunate enough to live in a beautiful part of the country and the farmhouse and cottages sit adjacent to the green in a couple of acres of one of the prettiest villages in the county.
Having moved to the village in 2007 we renovated the farmhouse and went on to develop the barn and stables in the courtyard into four self-contained two bedroomed cottages.
Given our experiences with our daughter we were keen for the accommodation to be as suitable for as many people as possible and as such we have provided level access throughout. All doorways are wide enough to accommodate wheelchair users and there is a bathroom and a wet room in each of the cottages.
We are located in the heart of Wiltshire and a bus service runs from outside our gate to take you to neighbouring towns and villages.
