Story

Very few stays allow you to stay right in the middle of a working farm yard - but this is one of them. In a converted Shearing Shed, hence the name, this building has a history of its own. Horses and pigs live just across the yard, Old Farm's very own Farm Shop is 50 paces away. The beautiful Cotswold town of Moreton In Marsh is a gentle 20 minute stroll across the fields, offering cafe's, restaurants and local shops. Get in touch with the changing seasons on the farm trail - the farm grows wheat, barley and peas which are planted in the autumn or spring and harvested July/August. Traditional permanent pastures provide grazing for the sheep and cattle as well as hay in the early summer; new grass leys produce haylage for the cattle and horses over the winter. The pig herd moves from the winter barn to the summer paddock complete with yurt and wallow when the weather improves and the cattle are turned out into the cow field with ridge and furrow grassland and old oaks for shade. This is a real family mixed working farm. Small in modern farming terms it has continued to follow traditional methods, grass and straw grown on the farm is used for the livestock and farm yard manure goes back onto the land. Farmhouse B&B and a camping field were added as demand for accommodation increased and the Farm Shop has allowed the local community to buy food from the people who produce it. The Shearing Shed self catering studio is the latest addition - the building has had many uses over the years including dairy, cattle yard, pig shed and stable as well as somewhere to shear the sheep. Guests really appreciate being in the heart of the farmyard. Stay inside, draw the curtains and light the log burner and you have a beautiful space to chill out and think about the history of the barn. Open up the stable door onto a private outdoor area with fire pit and grill but if you want to see what's happening out on the farm you just have to look over the gate... This is a great location to explore the beautiful north Cotswolds by foot or bicycle (and car if you have to!)
