History - Near and Far

Fresh fruit on our farmAbbey Farm has a rich and well documented history. Jon & Sally have taken the farm from ruins to the beautiful and sympathetically designed buildings that exist today.

Abbey farm buildings were redundant and derelict for many years. Roofs were missing, walls were falling down. The entire place was covered in thick brambles and weeds, it is unrecognisable from the wonderful setting it is today. The main house and barns have been entirely rebuilt, the yard is full of the original ancient cobbles What was once an old sheep yard has been transformed by Sally into a stunning garden.

The now demolished previous house was used briefly as a convalescence home for veterans of the First World War. Photos remain of people sitting in the sunlight on deck chairs recovering. Subsequently the farm was developed as a horticultural unit supplying the co-op in Coventry. The old greenhouse boiler room still exists - this was responsible for heating acres of glass houses that once stood on the site.

If you are interested in the history of the place, let us know and we have many photos and artefacts.
