Welcome to Holyford Farm...

 

Situated approximately 2 miles from the sea and nestling in the fold of a valley on the edge of ancient woodland, the Grade II listed Holyford Farm is set in a truly beautiful location. The site is first mentioned in the Saxon Land Charter dated 1005 with the name Horegan, describing the nearby ford over the stream (forming a land boundary at that time). The current east wing of the farmhouse comprises the orginal building, a medieval hall built around the turn of the 15th/16th centuries. Holyford Woods has an abundance of wildlife and offers some wonderful country walks literally on the doorstep.

Holyford Farm

Sheep dot the hillside, cows comma the fields,

my barn a blip of brown in the breeze-blown green;

being sucked into undergrowth beside a shallow stream
