About Helen Caine
Helen was brought up in the farmhouse. She and her husband Peter bought the Barn in 2008 from members of her family.
Why Helen Caine chose North Huish
The Barn was where we played in the hay as children and fed the young calves who were housed in the lower floor! It was converted nearly 35 years ago and now is sited in the peaceful valley I knew so well.
