We look forward to welcoming you to our undiscovered, unspoilt and memorable county.
We pride ourselves on extending a very warm welcome to all our guests on our 400-acre organic family working beef and sheep farm.
The farm is nestling beneath the tranquil Breidden Hills, where wildlife abounds, in the picturesque Severn valley.
Lane Farm History
Lane Farm has been here since the 1600’s but we arrived in April 1998 to farm its 209 acres and in the autumn of 2001 had the opportunity to take over Middle Farm with 184 acres, both farms form part of the Criggion Estate. All of our land is very close to the rivers Severn and Vynwy causing the majority of the land at both farms to flood at certain times. We diversified in 2000 with the extension to the farmhouse being completed enabling us to offer Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
Now well into December and I have to admit I am finding it a bit chilly having just been away for 3 weeks in Australia where the temperature ranaged from 23 in Perth to 43 in Port Douglas, but they landscape is so arid and dry, yes bits of grass in some places, but mostly with irrigation. They are desperately short of feed its heartbreaking to see some of the cattle stations and the desperation in the face of the farmers who know the only option unless it rains shortly will be to destry their stock. I know we moan about the weather here, but as least we dont have to face a situation like that.
We are now on full winter routine, with the cows being let out in batches for some fresh air and exercise in the yards, before they go back again into the sheds. Some of the sheep are up on the hill, whilst others are still on the fields around the farm. The tups are in with them, but we should not start lambing until April , when hopefully the weather will be a little more helpful than this last year.
The wood pile is slowly going down, but its so nice to have a warm house, despite the dust the wood burner causes.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful , Prosperous and Calm New Year. We look forward to welcoming all our visitors be they retruning or new in 2019.
