The beautiful old farmhouse at Shallowford Farm dates back to the 12thCentury. The granite flagstone floor, the old black beams and the huge open fireplace is the perfect sitting room to meet, relax, reflect and share. 

The dining room can be set out as one large table or as two. The room can be used between meals for meetings, grafts and games. 

The Kitchen is neat, well-appointed and kept very clean, always receiving the 5 stars from DCC.

The boot room and adjacent downstairs toilet provides the necessary access to the outside helping to ensure that the mud and wet are kept away from the main living areas. Hygiene is of the utmost importance on the farm so all wash hand basins are supplied with Anti-Bacterial hand soap and paper towels.

Upstairs the two main bedrooms have new, very comfortable bunkbeds. The two small rooms have one bunkbed each. The bathroom and shower room plenty of washing facilities.

Groups are encouraged to bring their own bed linen. All beds will have a bottom sheet but guests will need to bring either a sleeping bag or single duvet cover and a pillow case.

There will be a member of the farm staff in residence, in a separate part of the house,  at all times and therefore on hand if needed.


For groups that choose to be catered for, the standard of food is very good, home cooking of good portions. Much of the meat is produced on the farm plus the vegetables from the garden when in season.

All diets are happily catered for.

Those self-catering can use the kitchen facilities, order meat from the farm or from the local supermarket.

All the water in the house is drinkable, but not from the taps outside the house. Our water is from our own borehole and tastes delicious.
