Tor Farm is a family run business, and is run and managed by myself, Karen. I live onsite with my partner Ben and our four children. We love welcoming guests to Tor Farm getting to share our love of this beautiful rural location.
We took over from Caroline and Brian, Ben’s parents who have had the farm for over 30 years and who worked tirelessly to build the business, changing from farming, to B&B and then to what Tor Farm is now a small site of self catering lodges each with private hot tubs and a shared seasonal outdoor heated pool. They have now retired but Caroline and Brian still live onsite and Brian still does maintenance for Tor Farm alongside Ben.
Tor Farm was originally a Dairy, Beef and Sheep farm, situated down a very quiet, peaceful country lane, with fantastic open views of the surrounding countryside, but owing to the economic climate we had to find another form of income as well as farming, so we started offering B&B in the main farm house in 1978 and continued to do so for 24 years. This, as well as our farming has now ceased and we have diversified into offering nine holiday properties for rental.
Although not a working farm any more we still have a few rare breed sheep, and where the farm yard once was has been landscaped into a fruit orchard and four luxury Eco log cabins erected, which we had architecturally designed, and were built by Ben, and Brother-in-law Mathew, plus a few extra helpers, including Caroline and Brian.
We still live on site, so if there are every any problems we can sort them out immediately.
Our aim has always been to offer the highest quality, clean accommodation that we ourselves would feel comfortable to stay in and hopefully this is what we have achieved
