Consider this your invitation to get to know our folks and get a glimpse of our haunted digs.

Manor Farm

Steeped in history, Manor Farm built in 1650 is located in the village of Lavendon which is an interesting and colourful place and reflects the history of England post the Norman Conquest.

We believe we have seven former occupants present at Manor Farm. And with numerous owners and guests having experienced hauntings on a number of occasions during there time here, including Sam, there are many tales of the paranormal, ghosts, chilling experiences and the unexplained that we can share...

A Bit About Sam Cunningham

"I began my recruitment career in 1989 with HMS Recruitment; the national recruitment agency which became the training ground for many of today's recruitment leaders. In 1992 I established a sales and technical recruitment business and from a standing start, took the business to over £1m in the first three years of trading."

"With full operational and profit responsibility for the Recruitment Hub, I am a lead player in senior commercial appointments and obsessed with exceeding clients' expectations and committed to delivering value. The Recruitment Hub's culture is built upon it."

"When I'm not recruiting, I enjoy chilled dry white wine, family and friends, sandy beaches, boring stuff like gardening, laughing and horror films."

Daisy & Cardigan

We believe in beauty and brains

Born in Aspley Guise in February 2009, we are sisters and orphans. Raised by novice shepherdesses Sam and Gina, we had no problems not having a mum to hang around with. We have grazed at Manor Farm since we were 3 weeks old. We stated off in the kitchen for overnight protection and then progressed to the chicken run. Now probably weighing in at 50kg and still growing, we have our own beds and shelter outside the farm house. We took a while to get weaned off the 4 bottles of milk each a day until we discovered we could eat grass, hedges, hay and lamb pellets.
