Castle Farm, SY4
Castle Farm has been preserved in its own time capsule, allowing film makers and photographers to step back into the early 19th century.
The 600 acre estate extends around a 13 bedroom Georgian farmhouse and its farmstead, complete with original threshing barn, stabling, coach house, cattle byres, cart sheds and plenty more. These ancient buildings have recently been repaired, sensitively, with support from Natural England, to ensure the deep architectural history of Castle Farm remains intact. The working farm operation is based principally therefore in more recent additions at the far end of the farmyard.
