Film Locations – Parsons Hall Farm – Grade II listed Cruck Hall House
Set in amongst some of the county’s most idyllic countryside rests one of England’s oldest historic Cruck timber frame buildings, Parsons Hall Farm.
Dating back to well over 700 years and Grade II listed this building, its tithe barn and detached kitchen have being entirely sympathetically restored using traditional skills carefully balanced to combine up-to-date and environmentally friendly facilities giving heat and hot water via a ground source heat pump and having its own bore hole for fresh spring water.
In the gardens are natural structures made from trees and plants, artistic structures are formed by weaving branches and new growth, a fully stocked vegetable and fruit patch and small orchard with over 14 various fruit trees.
Surrounded by more than thirty acres of beautiful and peaceful meadows and woods, with small stone bridges crossing the brooks which enter and exit the medieval fishing pools
On the farm we rear Traditional Hereford Cattle, we have a wooded area where a few pigs are kept and have the usual chickens and ducks for their eggs.
The tithe barn is in its original state having individual stone bays, and a centre drive through which would have being the thrashing area, with original stone gullies for the rain water and stone cobbles surround the Tithe barn which lead down to the cart pond, this is where the carts washed there wheels off, the pond still has its original cobbled base, now full of mature pond plants and wildlife.
We also have two most fantastic tree houses within part of our woods, these tree houses are as eco-friendly as we could possibly build them, with oak shingles to the sides and the roof being a recycled artificial thatch but inside they are totally modern day equipped with Wi-Fi Satellite TV underfloor heating etc, it’s lovely to be in the woods amongst nature if we have all the mod cons around us.
Behind our farm are modern farm buildings which house our cattle during the winter months. Surrounding our farm is 30 acres of meadows where our cattle graze and a small wood with meandering brook
