Bygone Farm, TN11
This extraordinary farm location transports you back to bygone days and is a perfect double for an ancient medieval farm or village setting.
Built in a medieval style, the buildings are still true to their original creation. Unused now for farming practices, the farming family are committed to preserving their slice of ancient history and leaving it untouched for film and photo shoots.
What makes Bygone Farm special is how the buildings are clustered around a courtyard and include chimneys, windows and a variety of shapes. Enter the old forge and main oak barn, and the once living quarters are still present with hearths, staircases, balconies and charming rooms. The external staircase up to the balcony on the upper barn level provides a brilliant view overlooking the farm below and its cluster of outbuildings, animal pens, forge, stables and traditional farmhouse, all set within a backdrop of old, overhanging trees.
Bygone Farm extends out onto stretches of parkland, grass fields and crops, as well as some woodland areas
