Old Farm History
Old Farm is a unique collection of farm buildings dating back to 1345. It was originally built and owned by the monks of Glastonbury Abbey and used as a resting place for pilgrims travelling to the Abbey.
Originally a working farm producing Cheese and Cider, in the mid 1900’s the farm fell into disrepair and ultimately was placed on English Heritages ‘Buildings at Risk’ register where it stayed until we bought the ‘shell’ of Old Farm in 2006. Around about the same time it was classified as a 2* Listed Building putting it in the top 5% of all listed buildings in England.
Through much time, labour, love and sheer hard work the farm has been restored to its former glory. It was vitally important to retain the materials and sense of history in these buildings and with the help and advice of Mendip District Council and English Heritage we think we have achieved that. We hope that we have given these buildings a new ‘reason to be’ in the 21st century and beyond.

Old Farm stands in 10 acres of land benefiting from fantastic views of Glastonbury Tor and has a real sense of history and wonder.
Old Farm Restoration
Old Farm was originally built and owned by the monks of Glastonbury Abbey and used as a resting place for pilgrims travelling to the Abbey. It is remarkable to think that over 30 kings and queens have reigned during the lifetime of these buildings.
