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.
What a mixed bag of weathet we are having, the wind here has been a real feature, burning the top off the grass and battering the tomato plants, having had some rain the wind dried it up almost immediately and we are now rock hard again. The grass is really struggling this year, having spent so long under water and with extremes of sun and wind, we look as if we are going to be really short of grass for the rest of the summer and silage for next winter.
The lambs and calves are doing well, despite the weather, we did loose one calf to re-occuring meningitis, and typical it was a heifer. No idea how she caught it, but she had 3 episodes. The shearing was done in late May and the lambs have been sprayed to keep the flies off. We have some ready to go so that will be the next job, sorting them.
Fencing is keeping us very busy at the moment, again sorting out damage from the flood water, a lot of the fences are laid flat, some of the stakes are salvageable, so its not as expensive as it could have been.
Wales is opening it's tourism from 13th July for certain sectors including B&B's who have en-suite bathrooms and can offer room service. We have applied for and have passed the industry standard statement, but will not be opening just yet.
We are happy to take bookings for 2021, and will hopefully re-open later this summer.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming guests again when a true Lane Farm Bed and Breakfast experience can be had.
Stay safe and take care.
