About Me

'I was seriously impressed at her dedication and commitment, and passion for sustainable living, and am eager to go on one of her courses.' Michele Jameson, Country Living Magazine


Believing in community - doing it together...

Loving the country life - in London...

Living life to the full - as promised!


Hen Corner is a little bit of country life in London, we've got 14 happy hens, a small kitchen garden, 11 fruit & nut trees, and 3 colonies of bees - busy making honey. With a shed storing chutneys, preserves and our cider press, we have big ambitions!...

It's definitely a journey.... our first two Omlet hens (Pepsi & Shirley) arrived in 2007 and were doing so well in our previous garden that we planned for expansion. The next pair were chicks that our children watched hatch as a schools project. Many others have since been introduced such as the chicks that hatched last Summer...

We currently have an Eglu Cube, an Eglu Go and a Beehaus.


Come and see for yourself!

Bee Keeping day - Helen, 12 July 2015

We had a really lovely day. We had perfect weather to spend all day in the garden, it was very relaxed and we were made to feel very at home. A nice small group of would be bee keepers led at a pleasant pace by Sara through the bee story and into the hives. Thoroughly enjoyable day and an excellant insight into being a bee keeper.

A very informative course - Elizabeth, 31 May 2015

I really enjoyed this course as I came away with all the knowledge I needed to have my own chickens. Besides this, the course was very relaxed and fun, perfect to do with the children (and the husband!).

Great informative day out. - Simon, 19 May 2015

We spent the day with Sara to learn more about introducing a bee hive to the roof of our office. Who knew there was so much to learn about the humble bee. We left inspired and 'buzzing' about our new colony!

Walk-in Chicken Run - Kerry, 28 April 2015

When the 6 boxes arrived we felt a bit daunted, but everything was there according to the itinery and the instructions were really easy to follow! We also found it easy to attach our Eglu and small run to it and we are now ready to get our Chickens - we also went on a chicken keeping course this weekend through Omlet and we had such fun! Sara in Brentford London was our instructor and she was superb!

Lovely experience - Alison, 2 March 2015

We had a really enjoyable and informative session at Hen Corner. We came away feeling even more confident and enthusiastic about our decision to get chickens. Thanks Sara and family for opening your house and garden to us and we'll keep you posted!
