Willey Lane Farm is a 92-acre family run farm set in an undulating landscape in the hills of north Herefordshire close to the Welsh border town of Presteigne.
The farm includes 66 acres of pasture, normally grazed by sheep, 22 acres of ancient semi-natural woodland, mainly sessile oak, an area taken out of active production to produce food for wildlife and an area in front of the house being developed for Lavender production.
Togpen is a recent conversion of a traditional Herefordshire threshing barn into a dwelling house, retaining the original roof beams, adding new oak beams where possible and incorporating modern facilities without spoiling the external elevations.
The house is situated on the side of a hill with an uninterrupted view from the front of the house over the valley down to the village of Lingen and beyond.
Willey Lane Wood was neglected from the 1930s until we started to take it back into management some 10 years ago, and now has nearly a mile of tracks and rides within it.
Accommodation: A room with a double bed, en suite bathroom (shower) and an adjacent sitting area enjoying the view over Lingen and beyond.
A larger twin-bedded room with en suite bathroom (shower).
Both rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, locally sourced bottled water, biscuits and a hair dryer.
Breakfast: Breakfast is served in the open plan dining area, or can be served outside or in our summerhouse in summer.
We give a hearty cooked breakfast using local produce, homemade preserves and vegetables from our garden in season.
A gluten free option is available on request.
Evening Meals: Evening meals can be provided on request as an optional extra.
Walks: Visitors can walk across our fields and explore our woodland as well as exploring the public footpaths.
Pets: Unfortunately we cannot take pets due to the livestock on the farm and we have our own dogs and farm cat.
